SZ 89: Alchemy in a Glass F. Sarah Benson

A storm is brewing.

And that storm is the demand for the liquid that makes life on earth possible: You guessed it, water 💧

A single drop contains billions of water molecules, yet we can’t last a week without it. The stark reality is that 785 million people lack access to clean water, and that number is growing. Women and girls spend an estimated 200 million hours hauling water every day, an enormous opportunity cost.

Enter applied science.

Atmospheric water generation (AWG) uses condensation/filtration tech to produce potable water from the surrounding air. It confronts the growing problem of depleting levels of drinking water in the world. Crucial innovation, given that in a few years 50% of the world’s population will live in areas without access to clean, fresh, and safe drinking water.

Fortunately, 🔷 Sarah Benson-Konforty, MD 🔷 and the Watergen Ltd team are tackling this challenge to improve the human condition. Join us live on Silicon Zombies Podcast (Tuesdays at 5pm PT) to explore the future of this most precious resource. — siliconzombies.com
