An innovative product that aims to make clean water accessible to all was introduced to Lebanon Wednesday at Le Gray Hotel in Downtown Beirut, under the patronage of Prime Minister Saad Hariri. Cody Friesen, the CEO and founder of Zero Mass Water, believes that unequal access to clean water is not due to scarcity, but to human conditions. Inspired by a simple formula, air plus sunlight, equals water, he designed a solution he calls SOURCE.SOURCE emulates that process, but more efficiently. The technology itself is a roof-installed panel that condenses air, producing 2-5 liters of water a day.According to Zero Mass Water's data, polluted elements have never been found in water, even in highly polluted environments.Friesen argues that the cost may be high at first, but pays for itself in 2 1/2 years.
