To show me his technological sleight of hand, Friesen invites me to a hillside house in Berkeley, California on a sunny afternoon. There, in a shaded courtyard, we each sample a cup of water that flows from a drinking fountain. The water is cool and delicious – and it was made out of thin air. […]

At Zero Mass Water, we make exactly one product: SOURCE Hydropanels. That’s right, Hydropanels. This term is meant to capture that SOURCE uses special solar panels that take sunlight and air and produce water, independent of all infrastructure. So no wires or pipes going in, and only a single tube filled with safe, delicious drinking […]

When you purchase a bottle of water, do you think about where it came from? When you turn on the sink faucet, do you expect water to always come out? Water is a basic human need, but it’s something we often take for granted. Globally, over 840 million people are without access to clean drinking […]

Honorable mention: Source hydropanels The panels aren’t for power, but capturing ambient water vapor in the air and converting it into potable water. The company, Zero Mass Water, has shown the product works in humanitarian efforts and even embedded in public works projects. Conceptually, it’s like a big dehumidifier, tuned to the task of making […]

Cody Friesen had a big dream, and with Zero Mass Water he is making it come true. His team has figured out how to extract water from air, using nothing more than a solar electricity-powered panel. This is the first real update to the creation of drinking water since the Roman era, he says, and it could […]

Zero Mass Water uses some nifty science to squeeze potable water from the air. Founder Cody Friesen, a materials scientist and associate professor at Arizona State University, spent nearly seven years developing the SOURCE Hydropanel. Using solar power, a single system can produce enough drinking water for two to three people each day–even in desert […]

Special solar panels are turning air into drinking water. Instead of producing electricity for the building, the panels produce drinking water by pulling moisture out of the air.   Here’s how the panels work: Air is drawn into the unit. The solar panel in the center produces heat. That heat creates a water vapor that […]
