Replicating the rain process to provide a sustainable drinking water supply where most needed

Project description

New generator pulls water out of thin air

Air contains a little bit of water, but on hot and muggy days the air is saturated with moisture. Atmospheric water generators (AWGs) can extract water from the surrounding air and filter it to remove particulates and bacteria. The EU-funded STRATUS project is developing technology to generate drinking water by condensing ambient humidity. This will be particularly useful in areas where water is scarce or lacks sufficient quality. The project’s new AWGs target residential, commercial and public premises, producing top quality drinking water with a maximum 200 litre daily capacity. The new AWGs will be less expensive and more efficient than conventional AWGs. The project will work to develop, validate and bring its AWG to market.
