While access to fresh water is considered a crisis in some developed nations, the unbridled consumption and lack of conservation is paving the way to shortages of epic proportions across the globe.
The average African family consumes less than 5 gallons per day. The average person in the United Kingdom uses 36 gallons of water per day. The typical American uses 100 to 175 gallons of water per day. It takes 5 liters of seawater to make 1 liter of bottled water through desalination. Almost 70 percent of the available global fresh water is used for irrigation in agriculture. More than half of the water is lost through irrigation leaks, evaporation, or run offs, or is further contaminated in the process.
Atmospheric harvesting consumes significantly less energy when compared to desalination and is sustainable across the planet. Enormous amounts of water can be harvested from humidity in the atmosphere with it being factually impossible to negatively impact the hydrologic cycle by removing atmospheric water. The sheer pressure metrics of our atmosphere when combined with the continuous natural hydrologic cycle make it impossible to displace or interrupt the balance of our atmosphere. The natural hydrologic cycle (water cycle) is the driving force behind our harvesting technologies.
Each day, the hydrological water cycle repeats delivering and endless supply of water into the atmosphere.
The inventors at AQV Aqua Harvest have invented proprietary water harvesting solutions that extract and purify millions of gallons of water in water harvesting farms. Our harvesting systems collect water from the air's humidity and deliver it for drinking, irrigation, cooking, sanitation and water bottling applications.
The water we drink today is derived from the same water (while severely reduced) the dinosaurs drank—there is no new water. It is a cyclic closed loop system.
Our harvested water source is the endless supply of water trapped in the atmosphere and replenished daily. The sun is the powerful driving force behind this phenomenon. Natural water evaporation maintains equilibrium between the Earth’s surface and the oceans on one hand and the air above it on the other hand.
There will always be a certain amount of moisture in the air, commonly known as relative humidity.
NASA estimates that the global relative humidity amount is about 380 quadrillion gallons or 1,438 quadrillion liters. Moisture in the form of water vapor is captured in clouds that move around the Earth, driven by differences in barometric pressure in the Earth’s weather systems. When a cloud rises, it cools down, so the air becomes super saturated and forms precipitation. Precipitation returns the water to the earth as rain and snow. Part of that water will end up in the soil and continue as groundwater. The remainder flows through rivers into lakes, seas and oceans, eventually closing the natural water cycle.
The aqua harvest water production solutions require only three resources: humidity that occurs naturally in the atmosphere, temperature, and sunlight. And in locations where those conditions are met, safe water will be plentiful and 100% sustainable.
Our solar-powered solutions leave nothing behind but clean safe water for consumption and cooler drier air -- there are zero carbon emissions. The water removed from the air is automatically replenished by the earth’s natural hydrologic cycle.
