With climate change accelerating, H2O (water) is more precious than ever. This mobile generator produces fresh drinking water via an often overlooked source: air.
Users dump discarded plant and animal materials, such as wood chips or nutshells, into the machine, which WEDEW heats up, releasing water vapor into the air in the process. Then the generator condenses the vapor into drinkable water. The whole system, which also includes a battery storage pod and a refrigeration module, fits into a single 40-ft. transport container. Selected by @time as one of the 100 best inventions of 2020, WEDEW is currently partnering with the World Food Programme to bring the generator to refugee camp in Uganda and communities in Tanzania.
