Solar-powered system can harvest fresh water from air 11.6.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Scientists have developed a system that can harvest water out of the air using just solar power, an advance ideal for people living in arid areas of the world. The prototype, developed by researchers at University of California, Berkeley in the US, can extract drinkable water every day/night cycle at very low humidity and at low cost. "It operates at ambient temperature with ambient sunlight, and with no additional energy input you can collect water in the desert. This laboratory-to-desert journey allowed us to really turn water harvesting from an interesting phenomenon into a science," said Omar Yaghi, who invented the technology underlying the harvester. The trial in Scottsdale, where the relative humidity drops from a high of 40 per cent at night to as low as 8 per cent during the day, demonstrated that the harvester should be easy to scale up by simply adding more of the water absorber, a highly porous material called a metal-organic framework (MOF). Metal-organic frameworks are solids with so many ...
