Modi’s statement mocked by Rahul Gandhi, IIT showed the truth

With increasing water scarcity around the world, attempts have been made to collect and conserve water through non-traditional means and scientists at IIT-Guwahati have begun to look at natural methods for water harvesting.

Modi’s statement mocked by Rahul Gandhi

Researchers at IIT, Guwahati claim to have developed a new technique for extracting water from the air (aquarium) using the concept of hydrophobicity. In a team led by Uttam Manna, an associate professor of chemistry, his research students Kausik Maji, Avijit Das and Mandipa Dhar have published their research in the Journal of the Royal Society of Chemistry. 

Remember that a few months ago, in one of his speeches, Prime Minister Modi had talked about separating the water from the moist air with the help of wind turbines, on which opposition leaders including Rahul Gandhi made fun of him. The IIT team showed the Prime Minister’s truth and developed the technique of collecting water from water vapor without using any coolant.On this occasion, Professor Manna said, “This water-harvesting technique is based on hydrophobicity or water-repelling technique. The concept of hydrophobicity can be understood by looking at the lotus leaf.” He said that for the first time the research team of IIT-Guwahati has used the concept of chemically formulated SLIPS to effectively extract water from moist air.

With increasing water scarcity around the world, attempts have been made to collect and conserve water through non-traditional means and scientists at IIT-Guwahati have begun to look at natural methods for water harvesting.

Professor Manna continued, “We have built a highly efficient water harvesting interface. Researchers have compared their pitcher-plant-induced SLIPS material to other biological methods and have found this technique to be the best for water harvesting. . “
