The uneven distribution of the world’s fresh water resources will be one of the most serious problems of the century, and the water industry has the latest technology to produce a steady stream of pure drinking water in the middle of the desert, requiring only sunlight and air.

According to CNN, it has been a while since gaseous water molecules were extracted from the air and liquefyed by condensation, but the two main drawbacks of this approach are that the entire process consumes a lot of power and is only suitable for areas with high air humidity, both of which are perfectly overcome by SOURCE Global’s new technology, Hydropanels.

According to the report, Hydropanels uses solar energy as its sole energy supply to drive the entire equipment to operate ,and its interior has spongy special materials that capture water vapor as air passes through , and mineral ions such as magnesium and calcium will be added to the collection process , making the final product a better-tasting and healthier mineralized drinking water for the human body .

Vahid Fotuhi, vice president of SOURCE Global, said the technology allows people to collect water directly from the air using solar energy without the need for extra electricity, power grids and all infrastructure, “completely self-sufficient and zero pollution”. Currently the company’s largest water farm in the Dubai desert, producing 1.5 million litres of pure watera year, SOURCE Globalplans to build a plastic-free bottled water brand and sell it to hotels and resorts in the area at prices comparable to other bottled water on the market.
