KEY MESSAGES

- Description: WEATHERTEC Ionization technology enhances precipitations by mimicking nature in an environment-friendly way employing just electricity
- Specificity: Ionization of clouds increases rainfalls and snowfalls by ~20% and cloud coverage over wide areas. These results were achieved in 3 continents including Switzerland, Australia, UAE and now operations in Jordan
- Impact: Enhanced rainfalls ensure stable yields in agriculture and thus prevent forced migration due to droughts

 

HOW IT WORKS

TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTION
> Emission of trillions of ions into the atmosphere that connect to aerosols and elevate
> Ice nuclei and droplets become charged near cloud boundaries
> Enhanced clouds are developed and rainfall occurs over hundreds of km²

EQUIPMENT EMPLOYED
> WEATHERTEC emitters, solar panels
> Rain radars, drones, satellites,
> Command and control with high power computers

 

SCOPE

EGYPT / KENYA / ETHIOPIA / MOROCCO / SOUTH AFRICA / TANZANIA
Additional rainwater for ~350 M people

 

BUDGET

20 M€ per country per year for full coverage
120 M€ per year

 

IMPACTS

Agricultural productivity
Increase in agricultural productivity through additional precipitation and better irrigation

Climate change
Reduction of droughts, pollution and fires
Support reforestation

Sustainable dev. goals
Ensure fresh water access and sanitation
Prevent forced migration

 

NEXT STEPS

Implement ionization technology for first time in Africa after successful implementation in Europe, Australia and Middle East
Employ ionization on a large scale covering several countries in parallel
Increase snowfalls substantially to increase snow and ice-pack

 

WEATHERTEC TECHNOLOGY IS JUST MIMICKING NATURE, NAMELY THE SUN’S IONIZATION PROCESS

WORKING PRINCIPLE
1/ 
High voltage is provided to the system
2/ It emits trillions of ions into the atmosphere that connect to aerosols, with low power
3/ They create a plume of negative charges, which elevates by natural updrafts & winds
4/ The Earth electric eld gets slightly inuenced
5/ Cloud particles such as ice nuclei and droplets become charged near cloud boundaries
6/ Enhanced clouds are developed and rainfall occurs over potentially up to hundreds of km²

 

WEATHERTEC APPLICATIONS: IONIZATION INCREASES RAINFALLS, SNOWFALLS AND CLOUD COVERAGE

ENHANCE RAINFALLS
> Increase fresh water availability
> Prevent forest fires
> Reduce droughts
> Reduce air pollution through rainfalls
> Support agriculture and water intensive industry
> Support reforestation with more rainfalls

ENHANCE SNOWFALLS
> Build up ice pack of glaciers for fresh water reserves
> Build up snow pack for winter tourism

GROW CLOUD COVERAGE
> Reduce peak temperature
> Reduce electricity consumption

 

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

Technology powered by solar panels

Produced negative ions are environment-friendly and healthy:
- Ions are employed in hospitals and offices
- Ions affect humans and animals positively
- Ions don’t affect radio waves or airplanes

No side effects, no waste products generated or chemicals employed

Prevent droughts with additional rainfalls through ionization

Ensure agricultural production with sufficient water

Reduce rural exodus and thus ensure national stability

Prevent forced migration to foreign countries
