Thin Air Yields Gallons of Drinking Water
Edited by Robert H. Williams
Water drawn from the atmosphere is being provided by a new technology originated by Aqua Science Inc. of Miami Beach, Fla.
The 20- and 40-foot machines extract drinking water from the air via a system that does not entirely depend on condensation dehumidification, which is the route previous commercial producers used.
The fully contained, mobile freshwater generation system can operate for up to seven days on its own and makes available up to 1,200 gallons of potable water a day. A 40-foot unit with a reverse osmosis module, says an official, is able to provide enough emergency water to satisfy the needs of up to 3,000 people a day.
