Founders – David Hertz and Laura Doss-Hertz
David Hertz came up with the idea to put a little contraption on the roof of his office and collecting water in bottles. Soon, along with his wife Laura, a commercial photographer and their partner Richard Groden, he developed a system that uses shipping containers, wood chips, and other detritus to produce 2000 litres of water a day at a cost of not more than 2 cents per litre. And the whole system is powered by 100 percent renewable energy.
They created little rainstorms inside shipping containers by heating up wood chips to produce the temperature and humidity needed to draw water from the air and the wood itself. It was announced as the $1.5 million Water Abundance Xprize on October 22, 2018.
