Five examples of Water Collected from Air

Video Link : Water from Air is a new concept for the conservation of water by adopting a source that is uncommon and renewable. The most abundant source of freshwater is the Earth’s atmosphere. When atmospheric humidity condenses, it falls as rain. This natural process of condensation is replicated by adopting different technologies, which allows it to make water continuously, even in low humidity conditions. Here are the examples : 1) Airowater Dewpoint Smart "The Airowater Dewpoint Smart is one of the smaller units designed to ensure portability. This unit can make up to 20 litres per day in relative humidity and is also equipped to use city water as the input source to deal with a sudden increase in demand!" 2) Rainmaker "Rainmaker’s Air-to-Water units produce drinking water from the air – no other water source is required. " It uses a turbine that forces air through a heat exchanger, where the air is cooled and condensation takes pl

Five most significant findings of the week related to water resources

"Sediment cores taken from the Southern Ocean dating back 23 million years are providing insight into how ancient methane escaping from the seafloor could have led to regional or global climate and environmental changes, according to a new study." Click here "Scientists analyzing one of the largest genomic datasets of plants have discovered how the first plants on Earth evolved the mechanisms used to control water and 'breathe' on land hundreds of millions of years ago. The study has important implications in understanding how to plant water transport systems have evolved and how these might adapt in the future in response to climate change."

Five new ideas for launching agro-start ups

View the image  in original size Agricultural output controls the GDP of a Country. Especially the developing countries largely depend on its agriculture productivity to enhance their socio-economy and livelihood of the local population. Sustaining the profitability of cultivators is one of the major objectives of any government. Water and energy which are the two drivers of agriculture need to be optimally utilized. The uncontrolled and uneven distribution of natural resources, especially water resources, often compromises the agricultural productivity of the water-stressed regions of a country which in turn affects the national GDP of that country.  So optimal management of water and also energy resources in an agricultural location can ensure stability and incrementation of GDP of the country. That is why some apps can be developed and offered commercially to the farmers which can help in not only maximization of agricultural productivity but also it will help in the smart managemen
