Concept 3

Water harvest using absorbing materials like Silicagel

Absorbing materials like Silica gel are able to absorp large volumes of water from humid air. Several dehumidifiers work on this priciple using absorbingmaterials. Remember these small silica bags in the glove compartment of your car? Warming them up will release the hunidity again. The Foundation With Water would like to research the possibility of harvesting the water from these absorbing materials. This obviously a challenge and perhapsit will turn out to be impossible. If it is possible    (in several absorption based dehumidifiers water is being collected and stored) Than perhaps this method can be used to colect water from humid air against very low cost.

The Foundation Happy With Water will start to do research on this topic.

Cost for experimental resarch:                                          € 10.000,-
