New Technology Could Tap Into a Virtually Limitless Supply of Fresh Water

Posted by in category: sustainability

There’s not enough fresh water to go around on planet Earth, and it’s a problem that’s expected to only worsen in the coming years.

To meet growing demand, recycling and restricting our water will only get us so far. Scientists will need to find new sources of this life-sustaining liquid to meet our needs.

One currently untapped source is the water vapor above the oceans, which is almost limitless as far as supplies go. A new study outlines how harvesting structures could be used to convert this vapor into drinkable water.
