Preparing the units for dispatch
THANKS to the inventive mind of an 82-year-old Galician, a Spanish company traps vapour in the air to create drinking water.
The company Aquaer which is based in Sevilla is dedicated to create drinking water where no other sources are available and has produced a relatively small refrigerating unit which simply takes advantage of humidity to create water.
They have patented the concept which was put into practice by officially retired but still involved
Enrique Veiga who came up with the idea when he experienced drought in Spain and the company is now producing units which can supply a family or a whole village even in the driest of conditions such as deserts.
Depending upon the source of electricity used, the Aquaer Generator is environmentally friendly and does not cause pollution.
In the UK, there are regular TV adverts calling for funding to supply clean water to African villages in particular and this appears to be a potentially ideal solution provided that a source of electricity is available.
The Government of Namibia in Southern Africa has ordered 1,500 of the units, some which can produce several thousand litres of water each day in order to cope with ongoing drought, significantly because 16 per cent of the country is covered by desert.
