The Phaserl



by Christina Sarich, Underground Reporter:

The earth’s atmosphere contains just as much water as all our lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, underground well water, and oceans, combined. It’s a veritable Niagara Falls of water that could be used by people living under extreme drought conditions, who have been hit by natural disasters, or who live in remote desert areas, if only we could figure out how to harness it.

A new technology developed by Israeli scientists captures water from the air with 65 percent more efficiency than previous water vapor-collection methods. According to Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor, one billion people worldwide live without clean, safe drinking water, and two billion more live without basic sanitation for the water that is available to them.

The latest technology simply augments ancient fog-harvesting methods. Ways to collect water from atmospheric humidity have been around for more than 2000 years. Air wells can be found in archeological sites in the Middle East and various parts of Europe, and dew ponds along with fog fences were around in the 1400s to collect water, too.

Native Americans once survived long, hot summers in desert areas by collecting dew every night and in the early morning on a hung blanket, before the sun could burn the water away. Once the blanket became saturated, they would wring it out, filter the water, and drink it. This practice would provide enough drinking water for the day.

In ancient castles throughout Europe, you can observe small, oddly shaped buildings with outer walls made of ceramic-like blocks with holes. These were used to collect dew in the mornings. With a cistern inside, the water would drip from the walls and collect in the cistern. Nothing more was needed, except the humidity in the air.

As far back as 586 B.C., you can find sophisticated water collection systems, many of them reliant upon some sort of humidity-collection. The Nabataeans were an ancient people who inhabited northern Arabia and the Southern Levant. They built an impressive trade with surrounding tribes based on their ability to collect water in the desert.

These way-showers also used aqueducts, terraces, dams, cisterns, and reservoirs, as well as methods for harvesting rainwater, flood water, groundwater, and natural springs — but even the water in the air was not wasted.

It should come as no surprise that scientists from a country with a plethora of semi-desert and desert regions might come up with a “liquid-desiccant vapor separation process” that “reduces the energy requirements of atmospheric moisture harvesting.”

In order to obtain 5 to 65 percent energy savings, water vapor is separated from the air prior to its cooling and condensation.

The scientists say that their invention can work under a wide range of environmental conditions, even using low-grade solar heating as a source of energy in the water collection cycle.

Only 0.05 percent of all water is currently available for use for all our needs around the globe — that includes drinking water, agricultural use, and water for sanitation purposes.

Our groundwater is being used much more quickly than it can be replenished due to faulty urban planning and industrial agricultural practices that cause runoff full of pesticides and other toxic chemicals to contaminate fresh drinking water supplies.

Additionally, fewer than 10 countries possess 60 percent of the world’s total available freshwater supply, so creative, affordable ways to generate clean water are needed more than ever for all the others.

    Here at my Florida location, just about every morning, beginning perhaps at about 3am and until about 8 or 9am, there are GALLONS of DEW drop water that are dripping from my metal roof. If I put up some gutters, I’d be able to collect several gallons of water each day.

    And yes, rain water, snow and “dew drops” (even though it is condensed water vapour-distilled water), it has collected ALL the pollutants that were in the air.

    You’d be foolish not to FILTER it.

    Just consider all the Fukushima radiation circling the globe, coal plants, industrial processes, bacteria & viruses from every kind of decaying matter- plants, dead animals, manure from agricultural operations, car exhaust, etc. If it’s not filtered, it may be possible to kill you.

      “You’d be foolish not to FILTER it.”

      It’s called a DE-HUMIDIFIER, isn’t it? Turn that baby on, and then instead of pouring the collected water down the drain ~ maybe filter the water?

      I’m just guessing.

        Of course, you are 100% correct that the water that collects in a dehumidifier is the very same “dew” that is outside. Filter it? yes.

        But, to run such a device (typical models can remove up to about 21 pints per day), you need plenty of electricity. On the high setting, they consume nearly 400 watts of power. If the grid power is broken down, you’ll be stuck with collecting NATURAL condensation dew.

        All modern window A/C units use their own condensate water to cool the system and improve efficiency and don’t drip any water like the old units used to do.

        You can still collect some water from Central A/C drip pipe. (But again, if there is no electricity, then you’ve got to be clever without grid power.)

        The one side effect of running an indoor dehumidifier, is that they produce a lot of waste HEAT (it is the result of using those 380 watts of electricity.) Nobody wants to operate one of those inside of a house that is TOO hot already. Yes, the condensate coils get cold to collect the “dew”, but the heat-exhaust coils are located in the SAME unit. Those machines produce more heat than cold.

        Search Google for lots of simple plans on how to make a SOLAR Still for collecting water, both at sea, and on land.

    The “new” method they don’t tell you about, is the “liquid desiccant” method.

    It absorbs the moisture & then that water is separated from the desiccant. Not so simple unless a R.O. membrane is doing the work.

    If the well runs dry or the aquifer becomes undrinkable, etc., easier to gather rain water, stick with a tin roof and humid climate for dew collecting.
