     This theme is an experiment of a device that extracts water from humid ambient air.
     Applied patented technology of dehumidifier owned by Kankyo Co., Ltd., developed a device which can condense moisture in the atmosphere and use it as drinking water. The two primary techniques in use are cooling and desiccants.
     As a result of the demonstration experiment, it was possible to produce 4290 ml of freshwater by continuous operation for 24 hours.  The average freshwater amount was 179ml / per hour (max 220ml / min 145ml).
     The final goal of this project is to build a mechanism for stably supplying drinking water at the summit of Mt. Fuji.
