Wind Turbine Gathers 1,000 Liters of Water a Day from the Air

If anyone needs access to clean water, it’s people living in the desert. The lack of water in deserts and other locations may now have an answer with this prototype wind turbine. Marc Parent, founder of Eole Water, noticed how much water an air conditioner unit produced, so he combined a green energy source with other components for condensing water directly from the air.

After 10 years of research, this turbine may be ready for mass deployment. The WMS1000 wind turbine can condense and store up to 1,000 liters of water every day. That is very impressive. The turbine is 34 meters-tall and needs 15mph winds for its 13 meter diameter rotor to turn and generate energy. When it has the wind, it produces 30kW of power for the system to function. Air is drawn in, a generator then heats it producing steam, which is fed through a cooling compressor to form moisture that turns into water. Then it is stored after being purified.

This is something that could benefit countless humans around the globe so I hope it sees deployment all over the place.
