A turbine that makes water from the desert air
How do you produce your own drinking water in the desert? Why with wind turbines, of course.
French-based technology company Eole Water is testing a wind turbine in the United Arab Emirates that it says can produce hundreds of liters of drinking water a day from the dry desert air, reported Recharge News. Tests on the ground-mounted prototype began in October on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi and have been able to produce 500 to 800 liters a day. The company believes volume can reach 1,000 liters a day with a tower-top system. Eole Water has landed a number of industrial partners including Siemens, Carel and Danfoss.
