Going green is getting easier, thanks to new innovations in green tech revealed at CES 2018, the largest consumer electronics trade show in the world, taking over a large portion of Las Vegas with more than 4,000 exhibitors, 2.6 million net square feet in show floor and over 180,000 attendees.

Water is vital to life, yet according to The Water Project, as many as 1 in 9 people worldwide lack access to clean and safe drinking water.

At CES 2018, Zero Mass Water showcased how they’re working to create a smart solution to improve access to safe drinking water and provide an alternative to bottled water to cut plastic waste with their SOURCE “Hydropanel”.

The SOURCE is able to produce 4 to 10 liters of water on a sunny day, or the equivalent of 8 to 20 standard 16.9 oz.

“The SOURCE is using a built-in solar panel to power the process of collecting water vapor from the air and bringing it into our special material, which it then converts into drinkable, safe liquid water,” explains Kaitlyn Fitzgerald, Marketing & Communications at Zero Mass Water.

From Zero Mass Water’s headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona to India or Mexico, the SOURCE can operate in a variety of climates and conditions using only water vapor in the air and solar energy.

At the Zero Mass Water booth at CES 2018, we were able to take a drink of water, freshly collected from an array of SOURCE panels on site.
