Atmospheric Water Harvesting

Year: 2014

Grant Amount: $2,500

This project aims to quantify the benefits of atmospheric water harvesting for the Austin area through a combination of techno-economic analyses with proof of concept experimental demonstrations. Atmospheric water harvesting can be achieved through fog, mist, and dew capture by cooling nano-engineered hydrophilic-hydrophobic surfaces to potentially increase collection rates through increased condensation.
