FISR PROJECT – HYDROGEN SEPARATION
Acktar develops Hydrogen Separation Composite Membranes on flexible substrates in a roll-to-roll vacuum deposition process.
ARTIFICIAL RAIN INDUCTION IN ARID REGIONS – “GESHEM” PROJECT
Onshore winds carry humid air which is heated over the “heat islands” made of high emissivity black foil. While plants grow simultaneously under the foil.
The heated air rises (increase of 40 degrees) and cools down, water vapour condenses and clouds are created. When the clouds are heavy enough they release the moisture as rain over the drought areas.
Scientists plan to produce rain in sub-tropical areas during the cloudless summer months by altering air currents using a unique thermal material developed by Acktar.
The Geshem (Hebrew word for rain) technique involves installing a large black solar-absorbing surface over several square kilometers of land to generate intense and asymmetrical thermal emissions.
The energy from sunlight is absorbed by the material and then radiated back into the air to heat the lower atmosphere with minimal loss into the ground.
The heated air rises taking water vapor high enough to “condense and form clouds” that will produce out-of-season rain.
