Regreening the planet
with water from air
Nature inspired innovation
Although invisible to human eyes, the air around us contains large quantities of water vapour. Nature has learned over millions of years how to use this humidity to survive in dry, warm areas. Inspired by these animals and plants, Sponsh is developing a temperature sensitive material that absorbs water from air.
Tackling global challenges, head on
Water is the source of life. However, a growing population, increased economic wealth and increasing drought make water shortages a bigger problem every year.
State of the art material
Scientists at Eindhoven University of Technology (applied chemistry department), led by Sponsh co-founder Dr. Catarina Esteves, have developed a material whose properties change with temperature.
Water-from-air producing tree protector
For afforestation and reforestation projects in dry, degraded lands, we introduce the Sponsh tree protector (or stem guard).
We are a young, ambitious, high tech startup with a mission. Our team members share the same values and have a strong passion to make a real, big impact on the world through their work.
