A Giant Basket That Uses Condensation to Gather Drinking Water

A Giant Basket That Uses Condensation to Gather Drinking Water | Rainbow warriors Solutions | Scoop.it

Vittori hopes to have two WarkaTowers erected in Ethiopia by 2015 and is looking for financial rainmakers who'd like to seed these tree-inspired structures across the country.

 

His stunning water towers stand nearly 30 feet tall and can collect over 25 gallons of potable water per day by harvesting atmospheric water vapor.

Great design and great technology ... water from the air!

Stephanie Martinez's curator insight, April 3, 2014 11:07 AM

this sounds like a good concept and coming from a great place to help out this community but you also have to take in consideration the bugs that can potentially contaminate the water by easily getting through the mesh barrier. As well as the deterioration of the mesh, constructed of plastic, the sun would deem this fabric useless in under a year. so the maintenance required to keep this project working and collecting clean water.

Seafloor carpet taps power of waves to generate energy (w/video 2min)

Seafloor carpet taps power of waves to generate energy (w/video 2min) | Rainbow warriors Solutions | Scoop.it

UC Berkeley engineers are developing a seafloor carpet system to capture ocean wave energy and convert it into usable electricity. The system could eventually help lower the cost of converting seawater into fresh water, easing the pressure during periods of drought.

 

For assistant professor Reza Alam, an expert in wave mechanics, the seafloor “carpet” he is proposing will convert ocean waves into usable energy.

 

“There is a vast amount of untapped energy in the oceans, and with increasing worldwide demand for power, the need to find cleaner alternatives to fossil fuels is critical,” said Alam. “We are also seeing greater population growth along coastal cities, so the ocean-based system we are developing would produce electricity in a carbon-neutral way right where it is needed.”

Apparently waves are pretty energy dense and could be used to generate power in a simple way...

"Alam estimated that one square meter of a seafloor carpet system could generate enough electricity to power two U.S. households.


He added that wave energy from just 10 meters of California coastline, or about 100 square meters of a seafloor carpet, could generate the same amount of power as an array of solar panels the size of a soccer field, which covers about 6,400 square meters."

its interesting to see what the great minds of this generation have proposed as alternatives to cleaner energy methods. seemingly plausible with little disturbance to any human activity. but what was unsettling to me was the fact that oceanic wildlife was not taken into account and what repercussions this potential project could bring to the organisms currently seeking refuge in the ocean.
