Latest Water Harvester Pulls More H2O Out of Desert Air

During field tests over three days in California’s Mojave Desert, an updated version of a water harvester developed by the Lab’s Omar Yaghi produced 0.7 liters per kilogram of absorber per day — nearly three cups of clean, pure H2O. That’s 10 times better than the previous version of the harvester.
