Good find. This is an eyeroller.


Yet another patent for a mere idea.

If you develop a device/process for desalinization of seawater, that process is your. But the concept of getting freshwater from seawater is NOT patented.

A competitor is free to develop a completely different device/process for getting freshwater from seawater. The end result is the same, but the method is different.
