Scientists from the University Centre for Energy Efficient Buildings of CTU have connected a mineralization unit WatiMin, from the company EuroClean, to the prototype of the S.A.W.E.R. system, which creates water out of the air using solar energy and which is capable of cultivating the desert using subsurface cultures (solar-air-water-energy-resources). The technological core of the national exposition at the EXPO 2020 in Dubai is a joint project of the CTU and the Czech Academy of Sciences, but private companies will also participate in its construction.
