Scientists study nature to give us solutions to challenges in life. A global group has developed a platform that copies nature to improve urban water management and consequently, food production. AquaWeb will redefine the way urban farmers harvest, clean, store and use water. The system, developed by NexLoop, collects water in the air including rain and mist. It then passes it through a comprehensive filtration station.
The water is then distributed using a passive management system into indoor farms and greenhouses. The technology is a game changer in the era of climate change as it lowers the cost of farming inputs and mitigates against instabilities in the weather. Nature inspires the design. This includes spider webs that harvest moisture from the air, ice plants with water storage systems and mushrooms with complex water distribution structures.
This technology is called biomimicry. There are other examples such as an energy-free cooling system designed around a particular animal’s body temperature control systems. Modular Greenhouses is another company that is at the forefront of cutting-edge innovations in the controlled farming space. The company was launched in 2012 and is based in Reno, Nevada. Josh Smith co-founded the firm and serves as the CEO.
