You might recognize the Borla name from more performance-oriented exhaust systems, but the company has been working with Oak Ridge National Laboratory to develop new technology that could lead to some cool upgrades in the turbo-diesel and gas trucks we drive in decades to come.
Imagine if you had an on-board tank in your truck where you could get clean water whenever you needed it. It would be great for camping and remote fleet operations, and it would be especially helpful for military use.
The technology uses the heating and cooling done by an exhaust system to condense water vapor, then collects it in a usable containment system. Other benefits of pulling the water from the exhaust gases include cleaner emissions.
The video below is a bit of a Borla commercial, but it has some great info about the possible uses of the existing technology.
