Solar Air Water Earth Resource (S.A.W.E.R.) system seeks to turn a dry and hot desert into a green landscape. The joint project of CTU UCEEB, CTU Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, and the Institute of Botany of the Czech Academy of Sciences will be presented in the Czech pavilion at Expo 2020 in Dubai. It represents a system for drawing water from the air, characterised by a completely autonomous operation. Its energy requirements are entirely covered by solar power. S.A.W.E.R. comprises of two components: one for extracting water out of the desert air and the other one for cultivating the desert into fertile land.
