Developed with some SARS techs ex Cdn Military. And as usual no investment in Canada. Canadian Government through Industry Canada has these trade Obligor agreements and bungles any investment in real technology advances and wonders where the jobs are. A shame for a country with as rich a past in R&D achievement, looted by others.

I hope this idea works commercially.Rich countries like Australia should pay attention.

I imagine it might be simpler and therefore cheaper (in hot regions) to use a different idea: evaporate a fraction of the impure stuff and collect the distilled water. A black region to heat and a reflective cooler region to condense.
