New Technology Ready To Collect Trillions Of Liters Of Water From The Air

  Canada Global (Web News) Scientists have created a device that can extract drinking water from the air using a fan-like system. A team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Tennessee, and the George Institute of Technology has developed a low-cost and compact system that uses sorption-based atmospheric water harvesting (SAWH). does.

and collect the water on absorbent pads. Describing the technology, the researchers said that nearly two-thirds of the world’s population suffers from water scarcity, and it is estimated that by 2030, about 40 percent of global annual water demand will be public water. will not be fulfilled. This will create more problems for health, agriculture and agricultural use. The researchers said that there is 13,000 trillion cubic feet of fresh water in the Earth’s atmosphere that could be harvested without relying on existing liquid water supplies. Sorption-based atmospheric water harvesting has the potential to harvest potable water in extremely arid environments where conventional atmospheric water harvesting methods are not a viable solution.
