SFU Mechatronics researchers tackling the world's water crisis by pulling water from air
Professor Majid Bahrami, the recipient of a 2016 Canada Clean50 Award, has spent the past three years working with his PhD student, Farshid Bagheri, to find a sustainable answer to the world's growing water needs.
Their result is the patent-pending Hybrid Atmospheric Water Generator (HAWgen), which generates clean drinking water from the atmosphere through the integration of sorption, refrigeration and water filtration systems.
The system provides water generation even in hot and dry conditions and uses both waste heat and renewable energy sources.
