To conserve water and protect the environment many countries and companies around the world are finding solutions and joining them is Indian Railways that has installed a machine named Meghdoot at the Secunderabad Railway Station that uses air loaded with moisture to collect water, passes it through filtration processes and remineralizes it for consumption.
Piyush Goyal, Railway Minister of India shared this information on Twitter.
What is Meghdoot and How it works?
Meghdoot is an ‘atmospheric water generator’ that has been built by Maithri Aquatech under the Make in India initiative of the Indian government. It collects water from the air in the atmosphere through an air filter, the air loaded with moisture is passed over condenser surfaces from where the water is collected by the machine.
It’s notable that the machine can produce 1,000 liters of water per day as per the standards set forth by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Indian Railways has planned to provide water produced from the atmosphere at a price of Rs. 2 to Rs. 8 from 300ml to 1 liter.
