Australian Media Praises Crystal Lagoons’ Anti-Evaporation Technology30 January, 2017 / News
Crystal Lagoons, the creator of the world’s largest artificial lagoon, has met with Qatari real estate developers to reveal a new film-based evaporation technology that reportedly lowers water waste rates by up to 70%.
It works by way of a special water additive that, according to the company, “spreads an invisible anti-evaporation layer on the surface of the lagoon”. It can be used at different water temperatures and can withstand wind and rain.
Qatar is seeking to capitalise on recent growth in tourist numbers, with the government pledging US$40–45 billion worth of sector investment under the National Tourism Sector Strategy 2030 plan. The country aims to welcome between 7 and 9 million tourists annually.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
