A solar panel technology designed to extract drinking water from the air, has been introduced to the local market recently by the US-based company Zero Mass Water.
Source produces water through adsorption and condensation of water vapor from the atmosphere.
The technology only needs sunlight and air to create drinking water.
Cody Friesen, CEO of Zero Mass Water, said, “This technology provides a safe and economic solution for drinking water, especially in areas where there is no access to clean municipal water and families who rely on bottled water.”
One of Source’s panels produces on average three to five liters of water per day, depending on the environment and climate.
Zero Mass Water partnered with the René Moawad Foundation to install Source panels in four locations: Eimar public school in Denniyeh, Institut Technique René Moawad, a technical school in Mejdlaya, Tripoli, Dar Al-Aytam in the North, and Caritas Elder House in the North.
In the last year, Zero Mass Water has entered Jordan and the UAE..
