Metal-organic framework (MOF) designed by Massachuset Institute of Technology, Boston has given details on an innovation of a machine making water from air using solar energy. It works at a minimum of 20 % humidity. According to the Science Journal, the machine has a battery that is capable of recharging from the solar panel and produce 2.8 liters of water in 12 hours.
The paper written said it was the innovation was overdue for a long time as per the Scientist of the University of California. The device can operate in most dry areas where the humidity remains above 20%. More water can get produced with the bigger installation.

The MOF got invented 20 years ago, and about 200000 such prototypes are in use all over the world. All the machines made for different purposes the MOF MIT is different from others.
The solar -powered instrument is a welcome change and a break through to generate water from the dry air in the atmosphere. The only limitation is that humidity of air should be at least 20% at any time.
The scientist Omar Yaghi invented the metal-organic frameworks way back in mid-1990. The structure is made up of porous crystalline sponges where the dry air retained, stored, condensed and finally drains out the clean water.
