Washington, January 11 : A Texas-based company has created a device that can turn air into drinking water.
Aquamaker claims that much like a dehumidifier, its new technology works to capture humidity in the air and convert it into water.
The machines comprises of filters which prevent pollutants in the air from getting channelled into the resulting water.
"It's your own well, and it's clean," the Environmental News Network quoted Eita Markovits, the CEO of Aquamaker's Israel branch, as telling The Jerusalem Post.
"We believe that five to ten years from now, we will be part of how Israel supplies its citizens with water," Markovits added.
Aquamaker claims that its machines are capable of producing up to 5,000 litres of water at a time, which would be enough to supply an entire village with fresh water without having to drain an area's precious natural resources.
The company says that upon being used with a solar power generator, its device provides an environmentally friendly alternative to bottled water for areas with a limited tap water supply.
Currently, the devices are sold in the US, Australia, Israel, and several other countries, and are available in both commercial and industrial sizes.
