    hi, i'm making a plant, that produce salt, power, and fresh water, and get energy from many sources, i have plenty of options. but this one interrest me. first, i want it to be ecological.
    since the plant would produce salt, does using sault, to generate power, make pollution? i mean, using the molten sault, and, what's the heat needed to make the sault mault, and, does it caust much? and, is, the molten sault, used,with, heating it, intill it gets evaportaed, and push turbines?

    more questions later

    All you need do is let sea water evaporate to get salt.

    no that's not the question, i know that, my plant, in the getting fresh water and salt part is based on that, but, i'm talking about, how much heat is it needed to melt the sault, and, how to use the sault to generate power? is it used normally? i mean, heat the molten sault, to get vapor, and make turbines work? and does it leave any negative affect on envirement? does it pollute?

    and, how can i compress the evaporated water, and keep it on a vapor situation during that, to make it turn some turbines? knowing that the sea water woudl be heated and evaporated using solar power, and the lackes, or, the, squares, that will evaporate that sea water will be in, are under ground, and it's roof will be looking at the surface as a one floor.


    is their a nano technology, to make the surface of the solar panels, (like the clothes that don't get wet or dirty with sand or anything? like the lyzard skin, and don't get wet like some plants? it already exist in clothes)

    the nano thing with solar panels, is, to not waste water on cleaning the solar panels everyday, at least clean it less often and not everyday.

    Why do you want to separate salt from water to power a generator? melting salts will take a lot of energy, it would be much more sensible to do what they do now in the industry, and power a desalination plant with waste heat from a power plant... A new design uses the energy which is released when salt water mixes with fresh water to power a power plant, which then use waste energy to desalinate water for drinking, they use these in estuaries and places where there is sea and fresh water coming in.

    Why on earth are you melting salt?
