Solutions: Billboard Dispenses Public Water Drawn from Air - Truthstream Media


Atmospheric water generator could make offgrid systems viable or unlivable places inhabitable.

Editor’s Note: Scalable atmospheric water generators are a great solutions application for alternative lifestyles. They exist here and now (but could probably be tweaked), and are already on the market for individual families, but are also sold scalable to the industrial or community application.

Could this help provide abundance to corners of the world struggling for the basics of survival? What would happen if the needs of the poor were provided, or if private citizens concerned about the quality of municipal water supplies started their own system?

Whatever the motivation or scale of the project, we don’t have to be subjected to a captive market system profiting off of artificial scarcity, mass medication and/or skyrocketing rates – at least an alternative is possible where it might be desirable.



Water-producing billboard designed to inspire

February 26, 2013
The University of Engineering and Technology (UTEC) in Lima, Peru has partnered with advertising agency MAYO-DRAFT FCB to create an advertising billboard that grabs moisture from the desert air and converts it into filtered drinking water.



An advertising billboard erected along the Pan-American Highway is also home to some hidden harvesting, conversion and purification mechanisms (including an air filter, condenser, carbon filter and cold tank). The electric system takes moisture from the humid air by means of reverse osmosis and delivers purified drinking water through small ducts at the foot of the billboard, and down to a tap at the base of the structure.

Drinking Water out of Air

by geobear7 • 12Aug2013

Researchers at the University of Engineering and Technology in Lima, Peru, have erected a billboard that pulls drinking water out of thin air.

Water vapour is the third most abundant gas in air, after nitrogen and oxygen, and it can be easily extracted using a condenser.

Five of those condensers are installed inside the billboard, and the resulting water is then filtered and stored in tanks near the top. It can produce 96 litres of water per day, which is then dispensed from a tap at the base of the structure.

The whole thing is an elaborate advert for the university, which says it wants to put “imagination into action”, showing people that it’s possible to solve problems with engineering.

The problem in this case is that the region where the billboard has been erected is almost a desert. Despite this, air humidity is high — often reaching 98 percent. The billboard extracts this water, and delivers it to local people. It cost just £790 to set up.

A spokesperson for the University, Jessica Ruas, told the BBC: “We want to change the minds of future engineers and inspire them.”

Terry LeBleu, inventor of the DroughtMaster (Jackie Ingles/KXAN)


Drought Masters - Changing lives, one invention at a time

Founded by Terry LeBleu-inventor, Drought Masters is an organization created to help the world.

Our inventions are created to provide solutions to world problems.

You may ask, "What problems"?

Problems such as the lack of drinking water around the world, the heavy output of greenhouse emmissions, or the high cost of energy.

We solve these issues by buidling machines to harness water from the air and by creating machines that turn water into fuel and also create electricity, along with many more products and inventions.

Look around at our site and find out what we're all about!

Skywater.com Air Water Machines

Advanced Air-to-Water Technology®
         
Skywater® machines make drinking water from humidity in the air. Island Sky®’s patented adiabatic distillation technology, leads the industry in air to water technology.
 
Skywater® atmospheric water generators, or AWG's can extract more water vapor in varied climates than most air to water devices worldwide. As water shortages persist around the world, Skywater® products provide effective emergency water solutions.

Skywater® products alleviate dependence from the local water supply, by harvesting enough fresh water from the air to supply a single-family home, office, and much more…

The Skywater® 14 home / office machine may be the most convenient kitchen appliance since the refrigerator. No more lifting heavy water bottles for your water cooler, simply plug in Skywater® products and enjoy fresh, great tasting water for pennies to the liter.

Skywater® products are sold internationally, for purchase information click here. To find out more about distribution business opportunities click here.

The Skywater® 300 uses Island Sky®s Patented Air-To-Water Technology to produce up to 300 gallons (1100 liters) per day of fresh, drinking water from vapor in the air. See more at www.skywater.com

Imagine the convenience of water where you need it when you need it: an abundant, reliable source of fresh, drinking water. When common sources of water are so often contaminated, Skywater® is a reliable water supply without the risk.

The most abundant source of fresh water is the Earths atmosphere.

When atmospheric humidity condenses, it turns into rain. Skywater® 300 replicates this natural process of condensation by simulating the dew point, which allows it to make water continuously, even in low humidity conditions.

This is Skywater®'s patented adiabatic distillation process.

Imitating nature again, Skywater® 300 generates ozone to purify the water. Ozone (O3), a natural occurring gas that is produced in nature when it rains, binds with water to eliminate bacteria and other impurities.

Skywater® 300 does this by pumping ozone through the water as it is collected. Unlike other water treatment methods such as chlorine, ozone leaves no taste.

Thanks, Thor

We have a local dealer selling air water units he gets from China, similar to the one Willie is leaning on.  I was suprised that they would even work here in the desert. I didn't know that they are the same technology as the more trendy 'water alkalizersl,' but all distilled water needs to have minerals readded for health's sake, so I guess that's the alkalizing part.

I wonder what sort of the ecological backlash we might see if their used becomes widespread? Our local microclimate needs its already small amount of humidity in order to thrive.
