Wind Turbine Extracts Water From Air

The son evaporates millions of gallons of seawater a day. One can experience this driving through the dense fog in Abu Dhabi desert every night.  How long until we can harvest this moisture and reclaim our deserts?

Wind Turbine Extracts Water From Air

An anonymous reader writes "Getting access to enough water to drink in a desert environment is a pretty tough proposition, but Eole Water may have solved the problem. It has created a wind turbine that can extract up to 1,000 liters of water per day from the air. All it requires is a 15mph wind to generate the 30kW's of power required for the process to happen. The end result is a tank full of purified water ready to drink at the base of each turbine."
