Abstract    :   Sufficient quality and ease availability of drinking water supply is essential one. Along with food and air,water isa necessity for human.Freshwater is obtained from lakes,rivers and ponds but it becoming scarce because of industrial discharge, sewage and population explosion. Solar still is a distillation of brackishor saline water,wherever it is available,is agood method to obtain fresh water by exposing thin layer of salt water to solar radiation and water vaporized from the brine, condensed on the underside of a sloped transparent cover in such a way that it can be collected in receiving troughs at the end of the still. Active and passive solar stills are the major type of solar stills.Methodologies used in the past years to improve the productivity of solar still build based on variations in geometry, materials; methods of construction and operation were reviewed in this paper. Techniques to improve the performance of the solar stills are also analysedin this paper.
