The 7th International Conference on Fog, Fog Collection and Dew will take place in Wrocław, Poland on 24 to 29 July 2016. The conference is directed at furthering current research into the harvesting of fog as a sustainable and alternative way to collect water in fog dense areas across the globe.
Fog collection nets trap fog which condenses in large vertically suspended mesh netting. The water droplets then flow down into collection tanks to be used for drinking or irrigation . It's an age-old system modernised by the use of new-age netting. The varying thread counts and patterns make it an ultra-sustainable and effective option for harvesting water naturally in high mist areas. Fog harvesting requires little maintenance and zero electricity to harvest clean water.
A single 3-metre by 10-metre net can to collect 250 litres of water per day.
Fog farms are growing in popularity Morocco, Chile, Peru, Nepal, Guatemala and South Africa.
