New portable system uses PV to produce drinkable water from air moisture

UK scientists have developed Solar2Water, a system that generates twice the amount of water as conventional atmospheric water generators. The system operates efficiently with the same energy input, regardless of air humidity, relying solely on photovoltaics.

A team of researchers from Northumbria University in the United Kingdom has created Solar2Water, a solar-powered system that extracts moisture from the air to produce drinking water.

The patented solution overcomes limitations of conventional atmospheric water generators by generating a constant amount of water, regardless of air humidity, and producing twice as much water with the same energy input.

Solar2Water operates solely on solar energy, with two solar panels and a battery for continuous operation. Its creators emphasize its user-friendly design and robust construction, enabling use in any environment without specialized training.
