Zero Mass Water: How the water in the air can save us
By combining solar power, air and electricity to ignite a condensation process that draws water from the atmosphere, Cody Friesen (pictured), Fulton Schools professor or materials science and engineering, founded the startup Zero Mass Water, which is making big waves as a promising source for renewal water. With large-scale solar hydropanels that produce enough water for businesses and small communities, the system is being used in locales in almost 40 countries around the world. More versions of the Zero Mass Water system are in development, Friesen says. That progress promises to enable bigger and better systems that can provide water to larger and larger areas.
