it is convert humidity to water and save it in tank to use it later when need to convert the water to cold fog and sprays it into the atmosphere.

this also can be useful for places have problems with water so it is can be new resource for water from humidity.

how does it work in areas with little to no humidity though? I know in southern australia (for instance) its very dry in summer, so evaporative cooling works very well - but this uses a lot of water unfortunately

Surely Dohas WC bid team isn't going to just present that drawing to the FIFA executive and expect to get away with it

It looks like a year 7 with ADHD's science project that he did the night before it was due.

Is it supposed to be a tree?

Qatar engineer designs ‘Cooling Palm’




DOHA: A Qatari engineer has designed a device that can eliminate the sizzling heat and high humidity levels in the atmosphere. The “Cooling Palm” with its environment-friendly technology can reduce the temperature considerably, according to Farej Sakeri, a local engineer.

“The multifunctional device can reduce the temperature from some 45 degrees Celsius to 20 degrees Celsius,” said Sakeri. “It can also reduce humidity from 60 percent to 10 percent and can also increase the oxygen content in the air from 24 percent to 40 percent. It can also absorb the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere,” he told a local daily

The machine has been created keeping in mind the needs of the GCC region. Hence it is camouflaged to blend into the local landscape in the form of a date-palm; hence the name – Cooling Palm.

The device owes its multi-functionality to a couple of gadgets that can filter air. These include a device that absorbs the moisture in the air, thereby reducing humidity. Another device then converts this moisture into water by condensing it.

The water is stored in a tank and when needed it is taken to the top of the Cooling Palm. Here, a device called industrial fog valve converts the water into cold fog and sprays it into the atmosphere.

“The whole machine is based on solar energy and it needs no electricity or water to run. The leaf-like structures in the palm help to absorb the sun’s energy. The whole machine stands at a height of 40 metres,” he said.

The fog cloud will be at a height of 35 metres from the ground and cover an area of 100 square metres. This can bring down the ambient temperature to between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius. These clouds can also help block the sun’s rays.

“The machine can be installed in all public places. Open areas like the Corniche and the souqs in Qatar can be cooled in this manner, thereby attracting more visitors. The device can be modified and installed at homes,” Sakeri told the daily.

Though the device was innovated by Sakeri, the design of the machine was suggested by a senior official in a cleaning company here. Hence the device will be soon patented in the name of the company.

However, this is not the first device that the engineer has invented. The first one was Zero Smoking, a technology that handles fumes and smoke in factories to reduce the impact on the environment.

Yeah I have Microsoft Paint too.

So basically it sprays a mist to cool the area around it...

Kinda like what they have at Six Flags when you're waiting in line for rides.

These "outdoor cooling stadiums" is becoming more of a joke as the truth continues to come out.

Rumour has it a motion is being put forward that no nation can bid to host unless they have previously qualified for a World Cup, not that it would affect anyone bidding for 2022.

Na Qata haz a awesm fotbal teem!

Also, take note of how the supporters of this bid ie. qatarson never respond when they've been corrected or their bid or themselves have been made to look stupid.
