Water obtainment through radiant transfer

The technology developed by the project for obtaining water from atmospheric moisture through radiant transfer is adapted to the conditions of a developing country. The water collector constructed features LDPE and LLDPE films and, in field testing, achieved a water yield of 970 ml per m² and night. It was also possible to offset the hydrophobic properties of LDPE and LLDPE by means of hydrophilic equipment.
