Masdar, AQUOVUM, Khalifa University to sustainably extract water for air – MEP MiddleEast

Masdar City in Abu Dhabi will witness the launch of the world’s first project to produce commercial volumes of an uninterrupted water supply from a sustainable source, making it carbon free.

The innovative pilot project will be run by US-based water technologies company, AQUOVUM, in partnership with Masdar and Khalifa University of Science and Technology, as part of a three-party research and development agreement.

The project, which is beginning this month, will evaluate the performance of AQUOVUM’s large format Atmospheric Water Generation (AWG) technology in combination with a renewable energy source, and its ability to be included in current and/or future sustainable water projects.
