Wind turbine condensation to be collected for drinking water

By on April 13, 2012

The condensation from wind turbines in the Middle East could soon be harnessed to provide up to 1,000 liters of water a day. The turbines suck wind into their vents where it becomes steam when heated by a generator. The moisture condenses and water is collected in stainless steel tanks where it will be purified. The energy created by the turbines will be used to drive the purification process.

The French company Eole Water has created a prototype of the turbines which has produced 500 to 800 liters daily. The first turbines are slated to be constructed in the United Arab Emirates to help quell a constant shortage in the Middle East.
