WATER FROM AIR
Yes, it’s possible. But is it practical ? Or indeed viable? I must have read about at least a dozen variations on this theme – from portable machines that hydrate troops to nets that trap dew in the wind. Well, I admit to being a doubter. Most are too much bother for too little water. Clearly it helps to have a humid climate. But then you need power, treatment and storage, not to mention transport, containers and distribution. We had a machine on trial in one of our offices, but the volume and taste were poor. Now a Malaysian company has teamed up with a Saudi Arabian businessman and anticipates being an instant hit. Will this be the one ? One has to wish it well.
