Valley company uses technology to create water using sunlight and air
SOURCE Global, a company founded seven years ago by Fulton Schools Associate Professor Cody Friesen, is making progress toward its goal of providing communities a secure source of water with the novel technology Friesen developed at ASU. His hydro solar panels use thermal energy from the sun and the moisture from the atmosphere to produce clean water. SOURCE Global now operates in more than 50 countries, including communities in Dubai, South Africa, the Philippines, and the Navajo Nation. A company spokesman says the hydro panels systems — designed to work in dry, harsh climates in which water can be scarce — can last up to 15 years and create water in areas where the humidity is as low as seven percent.
