 New Machine can Extract Water Out of 'Thin Air'

A company in Israel has developed a device that extracts drinking water from air.

The machine, which is developed by Water-Gen, is already being used by the military, but the company claims that civilians will use it in the future, CNN reported.

The company has come up with Atmospheric Water-Generation Units that is using its "GENius" heat exchanger to chill air and condense water vapor.

Arye Kohavi, co-CEO of Water-Gen said that the clean air enters their GENius heat exchanger system where it is dehumidified, the water is removed from the air and collected in a collection tank inside the unit.

Kohavi said that from there the water is passed through an extensive water filtration system which cleans it from possible chemical and microbiological contaminations and then the clean purified water is stored in an internal water tank which is kept continuously preserved to keep it at high quality over time.

The system produces 250-800 liters of potable water a day depending on temperature and humidity conditions and Kohavi says it uses two cents' worth of electricity to produce a liter of water and can produce a liter of water for 1.5 Rupees, as opposed to 15 Rupees for a liter of bottled water.
