Solving the water crisis drop by drop
Fulton Schools Associate Professor Cody Friesen s drawing attention as an “impact inventor” for the work being done by Zero Mass Water, his startup venture based on technology that harvests clean drinking water from moisture in the atmosphere. The system is demonstrating the potential to improve access to safe water for communities around the world. His company’s Hydro panels are basically solar panels that produce water instead of electrical power. In dry climates like that of Arizona’s desert regions and overcast places like the Pacific Northwest, the system operates reliably. The technology has so far been installed in more than 35 countries.
