The article below explains how water from a source that most people wouldn’t think of – such as from air conditioners – can be captured and stored in water tanks to supplement municipal water supplies. As a rapidly growing population competes for limited water on a planet that struggles to sustain the nearly seven billion […]

A US start-up has turned to nature to help bring water to arid areas by drawing moisture from the air. NBD Nano aims to mimic the way a beetle survives in an African desert to create a self-filling water bottle capable of storing up to three litres every hour.
(CNN) — Wind turbines have long produced renewable energy but a French engineering firm has discovered another eco-purpose for the towering structures. Eole Water claims to have successfully modified the traditional wind turbine design to create the WMS1000, an appliance that can manufacture drinking water from humid air.
About 70 percent of the earth is covered with water. But 97 percent of this water is in seas and oceans. This water is saline in nature and is not fit for human consumption. The amount of freshwater on Earth is very less. It is only 3 percent. Almost 99 percent of this freshwater is […]
