Pulling water out of thin air

Pulling water out of thin air

Several parts of the world do not have reliable access to clean drinking water, sanitation or electricity.

So, an invention in India may have tackled two of those issues (clean water and electricity) with one innovation. Madhu Vajrakarur, a young inventor, came up with a wind turbine that produces electricity and water for drinking.

The device produces an average of 30 kilowatts power and between 80-100 liters of water daily. In the center of the fan attached to the turbine there is a vent, through which air passes. The cooling compressor cools the air, and the water vapor is converted into water, which is filtered and purified.

Being able to pull water out of thin air could prove to be extremely valuable in areas that desperately need it.
