Innovation on fog collectors. Monitoring and evaluation protocol
The main purpose of the fog harvesters in relation to the expected water capture capability is for local usage. Thus, the focus of this project is on wind tunnel and field experiments that will realise the most efficient methods for fog droplets harvesting such as passive generation of vortex effect maximising wind speed crossing the harvesters. Additionally, and to simplify installation and usage of these structures, the harvesters will be capable of; modular scalability, free-standing, self-mounting, self-extending and being portable. To achieve these, the project looks to overcome two challenges previously found; structural stability and cost minimisation of their field deployment. Life-Nieblas estimates to double harvesting capacity in comparison to previous designs.
