By the estimates of The United Nations, close to 2.6 billion people in the world are deprived of the basic clean drinking water.

Most of them stay in the underdeveloped parts of the world, where there is no proper facility to produce drinking water.

Peru, is no different and people are left to source water from the wells, where pollution is very high and not fit for drinking.

UTEC, the University of Engineering and Technology in Lima, Peru, have teamed up with Mayo DraftDCB to develop an innovative billboard that can provide solutions to many families.

The billboard is a pioneering effort that works on an evolved filtration system which converts humidity in the air to pure drinking water.

The area has an average atmospheric humidity of close to 98 percent. The billboard is capable of generating nearly 96-liters of potable water which is stored in reserve tanks. Residents can approach the billboard for clean water.
