i was thinking about how desalination plants work, i havent heard of one producing powered energy as like an electric company. I was thinking making one on a miniture scale, like in the Armed forces if a trooper doesn't have any iodine tablets he/ she could urinate in a hole then put a saram wrap cover over the top of the hole and put a rock in the center, as the heat evaporates the urine and takes up the water, it then purifies the water. the evaporated water could then go thru a turbine generator and that generator could then produce electricity. possibly first go in a transformer with industrial sized capacitors then be distributed to the public. Now i know this theory isnt like what i have posted in the past here lately. I know for a fact that this theory isnt impossible, just need enough salty water and some heat. the salt would not goto waste as it could be distributed to public stores for sale. As for the money needed for the elctricity, more of its income would come from the salt sales thus the electricity could be cheaper and hardly maybe 5% waste which could be the iron and other impurities that lay afloat in the sea water.
