Solar-powered fog net captures water and cleans out pollution

Fog nets are a literal lifesaver in arid regions with regular fog – but unfortunately they can also capture airborne pollution. Scientists at ETH Zurich have now developed fog nets that can use sunlight to break down hazardous molecules.

Rain is rare in many regions, but for some, such as the mountains of northern Chile, water-dense fogs roll in regularly in a frustrating show of irony. The droplets in these fogs are usually too small to fall as rain, but can condense on certain surfaces. Locals have long taken advantage of this and used fog nets to collect water in useful quantities and funnel it into pipes and tanks.
