Abstract:

Water plays an imperative role in all our daily activities and its utilization is increasing gradually because of increased living standards of human being. There is now a fresh water crisis in several nations. Desalination is a crucial technique for producing fresh water that may be utilised for agriculture, industry, and human consumption. The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of employing black granite stone and graphite particles as energy absorption materials in solar stills in order to increase the efficiency of solar stills. Graphite coated solar still produces 14 % and 12 % more potable (distillated) water as compared to black granite solar still in summer and winter season respectively.
