Novel Method for the production of Water from Humid Environment of Qatar
MetadataShow full item record
Water scarcity is the major challenge of the upcoming decades for the entire world. Middle eastern nations are prone to water scarcity due to very less rainfall, scarce fresh water sources, sandy surrounding and harsh humid climatic conditions. Qatar being the leader of natural gas production suffers from the same problem of pure and clean water. Water desalination techniques adopted so far are energy intensive and infidel to oceanic habitat. The use of vapor compression cycle for the condensation of atmospheric water vapor has various limitations such as complex machinery, high power consumption and periodical maintenance. This novel method utilizes heavy humid conditions of Qatar to obtain water from the atmosphere through Peltier effect. This method uses the dissimilarity of the conductors in the electric circuit such that when the current is made to flow through the circuit the heating and cooling effects are generated at the junctions where cooling temperature of the junction can be achieved below the dew point temperature thus forming the dew which is collected in the closed container as condensed atmospheric water. This technique is superior to other conventional methods of water production due to its cost efficient, energy saving, simple machinery and portability of the entire system.
