Solar powered clean drinking water maker trialled in Australia

A solar-powered device that creates clean drinking water from the air is being trialled in Australia.

The portable Source Hydropanels, created by Zero Mass Water, are designed to suck moisture from the air, dehumidifying it to drain the water out before it purifies and add minerals to the water. It is powered solely by attached solar arrays. Depending on the climate, each hydropanels can create up to five litres of potable water a day.

The panels are relatively small, measuring 1.2 metres by 2.4 metres. Each panel is capable of holding 30 litres of water in a reservoir, with standard arrays of two panels capable of holding double this amount.
