Water from Air Technology
Zero Mass Water uses solar power to create free, collectible water from the air and a single system can produce enough drinking water for two or three people each day, even in desert conditions. By tapping into the unlimited supply of water vapor in the air, Source Hydropanels eliminate the waste of bottled and filtered water.
Water pollution is a big deal. Our rivers, reservoirs, lakes, and seas are saturated in chemicals, waste, plastic, and other pollutants. 80 percent of the world’s wastewater is largely untreated and dumped back into the environment, creating unsafe water sources. Unsafe water kills more people each year than war and all other forms of violence combined. In fact, over 1 million child deaths occur each year because of contaminated drinking water.
How Free Water Works
The free water system works by blowing air, sucked from the outside, through a super-absorbent, sponge-like material, which collects water vapor at concentration levels 20,000 times higher than the air. The system produces 4-10 liters of pure water and stores it in a 30-liter reservoir where the exact amount of minerals are added to optimize it for taste and health. From there, the water is pumped directly to a household tap or refrigerator.
