Compact water harvester sucks H20 from the air

The Engineer  August 28, 2019 A team of researchers in the US (UC Berkeley, University of South Alabama) showed that a microporous aluminum-based metal-organic framework, MOF-303, can perform an adsorption–desorption cycle within minutes under a mild temperature swing. These findings were implemented in a new water harvester capable of generating 7-10 litres of water per day. The study demonstrates that creating sorbents capable of rapid water sorption dynamics, rather than merely focusing on high water capacities, is crucial to reach water production on a scale matching human consumption…read more.
