AWH could also be integrated into a standalone climate-controlled greenhouse for food and medicine eg. water source for irrigation in an already water efficient and vertically stacked biochar hydroponics system. Evapotranspiration from the plants will increase relative humidity in the greenhouse (similar to a 'Wardian case') increasing the water production efficiency of the Super Hygroscopic Polymer Film. PV-massless battery tech could also be integrated into the greenhouse structure, with a possibility of light transparency which has already been achieved with perovskites (no massless battery yet), for pumps and climate control electronics and mechanics on louvers.
The war in Ukraine, with many other creeping industrial factors, has triggered a global food and energy crisis - not to mention the existing and future freshwater crisis, and even the acidification of the oceans. In a future of increasing desertification around most of the world, driven by a range of factors eg.fossil fuel mining and consumption, unsustainable mining of minerals, land clearing and deforestation, transportation, construction et al contributing to predicted average global atmospheric temperature increases further driving it these are probably a set of ideas worth pursuing as they could potentially help billions of people and expand our 'Civilisation' into a future of inter-planetary existence, starting with Eaarth (Earth 2.0).
