Abstract : Globally, available drinking water resources are diminishing in both quantity and quality. Growing concerns about water scarcity and drinking water shortages have renewed interest in Condensation Water From Air (CWFA) technology, which utilizes water vapor in the air to produce water for both potable and non-potable purposes. However, there is currently little data available to determine the relationship between air contaminants and the rate at which they are transferred from the air into CWFA product water. This study implemented a new experimental method to test a CWFA system in a controlled environmental test chamber in order to evaluate how air quality impacts the product water quality.
