SFU researchers collect water from air
The Hybrid Atmospheric Water Generator, created by SFU engineering professor Majid Bahrami — the Canada Research Chair in energy conservation systems — and PhD student Farshid Bagheri, has the ability to glean water even from cool, dry climates where conventional atmospheric water generators fall short.
“What we did that makes our invention unique is we have a pre-processing unit that allows us to ... store humidity using a technology called adsorption,” said Bahrami. “Our machine sees a constant stream of air with humidity and temperature in the optimal (levels) so it will produce a lot more water compared to existing technology.”
