Water Spouts will speak volubly and endlessly about all the issues concerning water. The ongoing degradation, and growing scarcity, of the water supply here in the US, and the rest of the world. The continued absence of potable water in so many parts of the world. The work being done by NGOs, and charities, in the third world, to help alleviate the situation. The emphasis on WASH ( Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene ) so health and healthy water are maintained. "Water Spouts" will spout it all out.
Wind Turbine Turns Airborne Moisture into Drinking Water
With wind power companies still trying to convince the sceptics of their benefits, we’ve seen forward-thinking innovators looking even further into the future, with airborne windmills and small scale wind farming. Taking a different approach, France’s Eole Water has now created a turbine that can condense water in the air and make it safe for drinking.
Aside from the obvious environmental benefits a wind turbine offers, the company’s WMS1000 includes a fan that sucks in passing air as well as a cooling compressor in the generator compartment, which condensates passing airborne moisture. The water is then collected, filtered to World Health Organization drinking standards and delivered through a tap at the bottom of the turbine. According to Eole Water, the turbine can produce up to 1,000 liters a day. For communities situated in regions with few or low quality water supplies, the turbine could prove to be a vital resource. The following video demonstrates how the turbine works:
Tackling both environmental and social issues, the turbine has been in production for the past few years and has finally been delivered to Abu Dhabi to undergo testing in extreme weather conditions. If this is successful, perhaps Eole Water is a startup worth investing in? springwise.com
