Water from desert air: A significant proof of concept

April 18, 2017

Wringing water from the desert sky is now possible, thanks to a new sponge like device that uses sunlight to suck water vapor from air, even in low humidity.

 

This is a proof of concept device. However, it can produce nearly 3 liters of water per day for every kilogram of sponge-like-absorber it contains, and researchers say future versions will be even better. That means homes in the driest parts of the world could soon have a solar-powered appliance capable of delivering all the water they need, offering relief to billions of people.

 

There are an estimated 13 trillion liters of water floating in the atmosphere at any one time, equivalent to 10% of all of the freshwater in our planet’s lakes and rivers.

 

Over the years, researchers have developed ways to grab a few trickles, such as using fine nets to wick water from fog banks, or power-hungry dehumidifiers to condense it out of the air. But both approaches require either very humid air or far too much electricity to be broadly useful.
