Mobile Autonomous Unit for Water Generation in Desert Areas

Project ID: Tj02000215
Funding provider: Technology Agency of the Czech Republic
Investigator at UCEEB: Karolina Tomešová, MSc.
Project duration: 1. 3. 2019 – 28. 2. 2021
Within the framework of the proposed project a mobile autonomous unit for extraction of water will be developed based on previous research in the field of water vapour sorption and utilization of renewable energy sources, especially solar radiation. The mobile autonomous unit will use sorption unit with a flowrate 200/100 m3/h and local renewable sources of electricity, heat and cold in the desert climate conditions. The expected device size is cca 1 x 1 x 2 m and it will serve as a mobile emergency water source with an average daily production of 10 liters. Functional sample of the unit will be demonstrated in real environment by the end of February 2021.

The project is subsidised by TAČR, programme Zéta.
