Dew Water Harvest Experiment in a Semi-arid Environment, China / Vattenutvinning från dimma, ett experiment i semiarid miljö, Kina
Fog collection by man-made collectors has been proved to be a non-conventional source of water. Applications exist in many countries where conventional methods cannot provide an adequate supply of water. Alternative ways of gathering water in arid and semi-arid environments have always meant a challenge for dwellers of those areas. Recently, fog-water harvest is becoming increasingly popular in places where despite the dry climate there is a significant volume of water nearby. A pilot experiment during a few summer days has been conducted in a semi-arid to arid environment in China to study its feasibility. The results show that it is highly possible to harvest dew water in these areas with relatively low investment in term of equipment.
