Title: Oasis: water is life
The goal of the project Oasis was to develop a device that can produce water under desert conditions. Special emphasis was placed on the functionality of the device, ease of operation, operation independent of energy sources, and maintenance-free operational life of 5 to 7 years. The device is powered by solar energy and produces water via condensation. Even under worst-case conditions (30% humidity and 30°C) the device can produce a half liter of water per hour.
