Pulling clean water from dirty air
Today’s Video of the Day from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology describes a device that could potentially pull drinking water out of the air.
There is nearly 13 trillion tons of water stored in the atmosphere across the planet, which is a huge untapped resource of clean water.
The new technology, developed by Peng Wang from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), is designed to serve as a low-cost method for collecting clean water in remote areas.
The study is published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
