Harvesting Water From Thin Air.
Water scarcity is a persistent issue in many parts of the world with only 3% of the available water on earth being drinkable. Even in the most arid of environments, small quantities of water molecules are present in air, offering the potential to sustain life if harvested.
With Tier-1 partners, NuMat is develop a portable, lightweight water harvesting system which can support life in the most challenging environments – creating clean drinking water from thin air through the power of programmable chemistries.
Beyond water harvesting from air, NuMat is designing ultra-selective materials which can sense and then capture impurities in water – whether they be toxins or precious metals which can create novel supply-chains that displace traditional mining value streams.
