Prototype machine successfully harvest water from desert air
As climate change affects the world supply of basic resources such as water, scientists and engineers are constantly coming up with innovative new ideas and inventions to mitigate the impact of the phenomenon on the people.
In a recent feature by UC Berkeley on their youtube page, they documented their team setting up their prototype of a water harvester in the Arizona desert to see if it can harvest water using no other power than solar energy. This means that the machine can use available resources such as sunlight to power the harvester, and produce drinkable water out of the desert air.
“The water harvester can extract drinkable water every day/night cycle at very low humidity and at low cost, making it ideal for people living in arid, water-starved areas of the world,” UC Berkeley explained.
Wow, what a major win for science! (ANGEL ONG)
