    Hi, Natasha. You have a pure Russian name . Organizers provide the following information about you project. If the description is correct you team might be interested in
    drastic improvement of evaporation intensiveness via Maisotsenko Cycle. If so, let's discuss it. Alexey (another pure Russian name)
    ""Solar Thermal Enhanced Evaporation
    Location: Minneapolis, MN
    Project Summary: Researchers from the University of Minnesota propose a humidification-dehumidification desalination system that will handle small-volume brine from industrial facilities that do work such as electroplating, which coats metal onto surfaces, dyeing, and mining. This project will use large fans, evaporators, and heat-pump-driven condensation systems to manage brine mixed with industrial metals. The team plans to industrially source forced-flow evaporators and fans to attain a levelized cost of water no higher than $1/m3.""

    WE manufacture a non-tracking solar concentrator in Jacksonville, FL . I see you are using the Quad Sun tracking technology made in India. I you are interested, we can make a comparison of an American made technology with little to no O&M costs for temperatures in excess of 230C.
