Is "growing" water possible? An Australian start-up has a unique solution for water scarcity around the world -- harvesting water that occurs naturally in plants.
Botanical Water Technologies hopes to play a key role in easing water shortages by delivering safe drinking water to the world's most vulnerable population by 2025.
"With our innovation, it's possible to not just grow water but to have it flow sustainably to every corner of the world," the company says.
By how exactly does the start-up "grow water"? They tap the water left behind in the process of extracting juice from vegetables and fruits.
On its website, the company said it managed to obtain 260,000 gallons of potable water in the July-September period.
Its taste: "crystal clear, like really, really great water", CEO and co-founder Terry Paule told CBS.
The start-up is soon planning to introduce its technology in India. The start-up distributes water using using Botanical Water Exchange (BWX) - a global trading platform to connect buyers and sellers.
