Drinking Water From Air

My recent GoingTrueGreen Blog posting was about our drinking water and the overall availability for every human living on our planet. This is a serious issue mainly because we do not know for sure how easy or difficult obtaining clean drinking water will be for our grandchildren in the future. Yet, extreme difficulty already exists today for over 1.1 Billion people to obtain just 5 gallons of drinkable water and today’s evidence points toward a dry future.
Enter on the world stage, the Human Spirit. My Blog and Videos present the power from Humankind working together on one team. The Human Spirit became the catalyst behind humans walking on the moon, and from that work, leap-frog medical technology came about, to cite just one area of benefits. Today I want to share with you just one project that provides solutions to our drinking water situation. This work is no less than walking on the moon.

Lima is surrounded by a desert. The capital city is one of the world’s largest, and drinking water, clean drinking water, is a serious issue.A large amount of Lima’s population obtains their drinking water from wells. Wells that can get polluted. This is not anything new. Throughout the United States we have wells closing because they have become so polluted, the water is undrinkable.

The city of Lima receives very little rain, yet the air about the city has an atmospheric humidity level of 98% most of the time. So the University of Engineering and Technology in Peru teamed up with a marketing agency called Mayo DraftFCB and they built and installed a billboard with an advanced water harvesting feature. The system not only harvests water, but also has a filtration system that creates up to 96 liters (over 25 gallons) of drinkable water each and every day.

Think about this for a second, a billboard installed in a desert city, where the generators capture moisture out of the air – out of humidity, converts the moisture into purified drinking water and stores the water in five tanks connected to a faucet at the base of the billboard for retrieval. Thus, helping to solve a real need for the local area by the billboard.
There is one additional function for the billboard:
To advertise the University’s engineering and technology accomplishment! Video below:

So as we talk about Wind and Solar out in the desert, perhaps we should incorporate one more item into our desert farms: Water Harvesting.

Bill Lauto
Bill Lauto is an Environmental Scientist and Energy Consultant who came on the scene in 1981 to present facts and teach details about how we can save money, energy, and our environment, without making sacrifices. His voice was one among the few who taught green facts long before anyone else talked about Going Green.

Mr. Lauto has an Environmental Science degree from St. John's University, Energy Auditor Certification from New York Institute of Technology, and Certification in Thermal/Heating from S.U.N.Y. at Farmingdale. He interned at Equitable Environmental Health that brought him to evaluate the environment at LILCO's Nuclear power plant that never opened. As an entrepreneur, he operates EnergyHotwire.com, GoingTrueGreen.com and holds a U.S. Patent with a Trademark on an environmental and energy-related product.

Mr. Lauto has done and managed thousands of energy audits for homeowners. Not one recommended a single action that implied sacrifice. He never stated once that to save money and energy one must turn down their thermostat and wear a sweater. During the 20th Anniversary of Earth Day, Bill Lauto was the Energy Advisor to the Earth Day Committee in New York. Mr. Lauto was the attending expert witness to the press conferences of former New York’s Major Dinkins and Commissioner Mark Green. His expertise has been utilized by power companies such as: the New York Power Authority and the Long Island Lighting Company as well as by Mr. Mark Green, former Commissioner of Consumer Affairs, NYC.

Mr. Lauto has served as the Environmental and Energy expert on several television news and radio talk shows. He has provided information and consulting services on topics such as: air, cooling, heating, lighting, appliances, recycling stations, solar, wind, bio-fuels, hydrogen and water to: Clearwater, Consumer Report Magazine, European American Bank, Home Depot, LILCO, NBC, Macy*s, New York Power Authority, NYPIRG, Time Warner, EPA, thousands of homeowners, celebrities, small businesses, nonprofit organizations, and many government accounts.

Information about Mr. Lauto, his articles, and work have been published in newspapers across the country, including: Consumer Report magazine, Kiplinger's Financial magazine and Business Ethics magazine.

For over twenty years, Mr. Lauto has been stating that we don’t need foreign oil, we have the technology to make America energy independent. EnergyHotwire.com serves to educate the public for free on how to lower energy cost by 60% or more, while GoingTrueGreen.com uses videos and Mr. Lauto's Blog to help dispel mis-information and provide the facts about truly Going Green.
