One invention that could change the world. 

There’s a new invention that could change the world. How does it sound to make water out of thin air? Impossible? I think not.

 

Some of you may know that I’ve just started an internship with Veragon Water, who produce machines that transform the humidity in the air to high quality mineral water. Their mission is to provide a reliable and sustainable source of water where it is needed most with minimal environmental impact.  

 

The Air to Water technology will change the world. A crisis is here and a larger one is looming.

 

Water crisis

At present 1 in 9 people don’t have access to clean water around the world, and by 2030 half of the world’s population will live in high water stress areas. That doesn’t seem that far away. Much of this is a result of rising population and increased demand for water despite a decreasing supply of water, worsened by climatic change causing more extreme weather conditions across the world. Frankly there is a global water crisis and it will get worse!

The NASA Grace mission that has been orbiting the world for the last 15 years, has documented the fast deterioration of at least a third of the Earth’s the underground water resources.

 

Humanitarian assistance

Humanitarian assistance can only go so far. Many of the large water charities are providing access to underground water resources, yet these are running out. Charities and humanitarian assistance can’t dig for water when there is no water left.

Yet there is a solution: Air to Water. Veragon’s machines mimic the hydrological water cycle and can work in conditions from 20% humidity to 100%. Evidently the higher the humidity and temperature the higher the water production. They work as a plug and go – that can be plugged into any source, renewable or non-renewable. Currently due to the novelty they are expensive however with more investment and R&D, inventions like those at Veragon have the potential to change the world, and ensure that everyone has access to high quality mineral water to drink. Our bodies are water after all!
