French engineering firm Eole Water has developed a wind turbine that can produce 1,000 liters of clean drinking water every day by filtering and collecting moisture out of the air.

Seeing how the U.S. expects upcoming wars to revolve around water, the WMS1000 wind turbine could be a huge benefit to the 885 million people that do not have access to clean water in regions in Africa, South America, India and Indonesia.

The turbines are designed to maximize water production and energy independence while reducing maintenance and environmental impact
