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 […]

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 […]

While rainfall may be plentiful in Tanna, safe drinking water is not. And captured rainwater is regularly contaminated by sulphur dust from Mt. Yasur. Seeing this constraint, an ADB team helped conceptualize a possible solution with the Government of Vanuatu and Zero Mass Water. Working in partnership, we began a pilot project about nine months […]
