Made in the Bay: Device from Lafayette company makes water out of air
LAFAYETTE, Calif. (KTVU) - A device looks like an ordinary water cooler, but it can make water out of air. Wayne Ferreira is a former professional tennis player and co-founder of Lafayette-based Ecolo-Blue, which makes AWG's, which stands for automatic water generators.
UNICEF says it is impressed by the concept. "We really believe there
is no one solution. But solutions from different places, ideas from
different places can make a huge difference in the lives of hundreds of
millions of children, said UNICEF's Tanya Accone. Ferreira, who
won a silver medal for doubles in tennis during the 1992 Olympics, says
he became interested in the technology after he retired from tennis.
