Drinking Water from the Air

A Peruvian university has been working with designers to create the world’s first billboard with a tap. The billboard showcases some of the technology used to create clean drinking water from humid air, and incorporates a water generator and a reserve tank that can hold 96 litres.

This innovative project provides some of Lima’s residents with a viable alternative to drawing water from wells, which can get polluted. Lima is the 22nd largest capital in the world with population figures that are similar to London. There is little rain there but atmospheric humidity can reach 98%.
