Salt water’s oxygen hydrogen bonds can be broken in many ways resulting in high energy outputs that are stored in water. Since water contains an enormous amount of energy, the potentials are endless. This video demonstrates a single method of water bond breaking using radio frequency.

Water out of air? A Texas man has invented a machine that does just that, and it’s already caught the eye of some celebrities. “It’s just an awesome machine,” says inventor Terry LeBleu. The drought doesn’t worry him because he’s invented and patented a new machine. It’s called the “Drought Master” and makes drinkable water out of air. “It pulls the air through it, pulls out the moisture, and exhausts the air,” LeBleu says. Depending on humidity, the machine can make between five to seven gallons of pure water in one day. All you have to do is plug it in, and one gallon costs only 4 cents in electrical charges. An independent lab took samples of LeBleu’s water and found it had no bacteria and is free of metals. Lab techs say it’s similar to distilled water. Willie Nelson owns 50 of these machines, including an indoor version. Even Texas Governor Rick Perry owns one. But LeBleu wants his invention to benefit local farmers and ranchers. “It is good emergency water. Let’s say the power goes out of whatever. Once this thing fills up, it cuts off. It has a bubbler inside that keeps the water moving all the time,” LeBleu says. The machine is quieter than a refrigerator, and you only have to wash the filter every few years. Building one takes only two hours. The oldest model made is still up and running. It’s been functioning for a decade.

The availability of fresh water is dwindling in many parts of the world, a problem that is expected to grow with populations. One promising source of potable water is the world’s virtually limitless supply of seawater, but so far desalination technology has been too expensive for widespread use. Now, MIT researchers have come up with a new approach using a different kind of filtration material: sheets of graphene, a one-atom-thick form of the element carbon, which they say can be far more efficient and possibly less expensive than existing desalination systems.

A Catalan inventor has created a brand new system that transforms humidity into water, Hydromatch. It acts like a giant air conditioning system, able to produce 500,000 liters an hour. According to its inventor, the machinery can work almost everywhere with at least 20% of humidity, which includes many deserts.

In addition to solar, wind and geothermal resources, a growing interest in the renewable energy of the ocean has recently given way to several innovative developments offshore. Special buoys, turbines and other technologies can capture the power of waves and tides to convert it into clean and pollution-free electricity. Like other renewable resources, both wave and tidal energy are variable in nature. Waves are produced by winds blowing across the surface of the ocean. However, because waves travel across the ocean, their arrival time at the wave power facility may be more predictable than wind. In contrast, tidal energy, which is driven by the gravitational pull of the moon and sun, is predictable centuries in advance. Careful siting should minimize impacts on marine ecosystems, fishing and other coastal activities.

The family of a senior scientist in Bengaluru has not paid their water bill for 22 years. Reason: AR Shivakumar is doing without a water connection, using treated rainwater not just for bathing and washing, but also for drinking. The senior scientist at Karnataka StateCouncil for Science and Technology had designed his green home more than two decades ago – building in a water harvesting system that yields more than 400 litres of water daily. Which means the expected scanty rainfall this year -when the state is facing is second consecutive year of drought – will be enough for their needs.

Water is essential to the survival of all forms of life. A clean and accessible supply is a basic need that millions of people around the world do not have. In disadvantaged and rural communities, the trouble of fetching water invariably over long distances by cumbersome and unhygienic means is all too evident. The Q Drum is a straightforward solution to this problem. It is a durable, donut-shaped plastic container which, when full, holds 50 litres of water. It’s designed as to ease the physical burden and reduce the time spent collecting water.

The Aquaduct is a bicycle that purifies the water while it is being transported from one place to another. It’s a product designed for the developing world, where women typically transport contaminated water and boil it at home, wasting wood and energy along the way.
How does this filtration work exactly? A peristaltic pump attached to the pedal crank draws water from a large tank, through a filter, to a smaller clean tank. The clean tank is removable and closed for contamination-free home storage and use. A clutch engages and disengages the drive belt from the pedal crank, enabling the rider to filter the water while traveling or while stationary.

The Tarahumara Indians are ultra athletes, their incredible athleticism is directly related to the fact that they grow their own food and medicine. Also they came up with techniques for dry-land irrigation, for instance by planting there apple trees on strategic places where the land comes together and there’s a natural drainage of water, so they get irrigated by the landscape itself.
