Developing material
to provide affordable water
for everyone

Sponsh is scaling up the smart-material for real-life use. The material is like a textile that can be used in many ways: draped along vineyard rows, curled around trees, hung over vegetation or laid on the ground. Providing affordable water directly to the source. Without energy, infrastructure or maintenance.

Off-Grid


No infrastructure, water or
electricity lines are required. The material performs stand-alone.

No Energy Needed


Temperature differences drive
absorption and release of water. No electricity or other energy is needed

Affordable


No large investment required. One square meter already provides daily water.
