Scholarcy highlights

  • Freshwater shortages and water pollution have threatened the sustainable development of human beings
  • A hybrid device is developed consisting of photovoltaics, membrane distillation, and electrochemical advanced oxidation processes for sustainable freshwater production and wastewater treatment
  • The high water-production performance and degradation performance is attributed to the well-designed structure of the three stages PV-MD-EAOPs device, which enables both the latent heat recycle of water evaporation and the contaminants enrichment of wastewater
  • A new path is explored for in situ thermal and electricity utilization of photovoltaic for efficient treatment of wastewater, which is a meaningful way for synchronous clean water production and wastewater treatment
  • Any queries should be directed to the corresponding author for the article
