Providing water for everyone with water-from-air technology

Project description

Technology for clean drinking water from the air

Harnessing the 140 quadrillion litres of water in the atmosphere could address the current scarcity of drinking water. Recent advanced technological developments allow an economically viable technology for harvesting this water. The ThinAir start-up has developed a material optimised for capturing atmospheric water and rigorously proven this technology at Imperial College London. The ThinAirWater surface technology is currently at a TRL 6 and takes inspiration from the African fogstand beetle. The EU-funded ThinAirWater project will launch the technology as a material component in existing air to water generators, improving their efficiency to address a wider range of markets and climates, increase their yield of water production, and reduce their cost per litre.
