Australian scientists use V22 Cloud to help protect the Great Barrier Reef

To help protect the Great Barrier Reef, a research team led by the Sydney Institute of Marine Science and Southern Cross University has developed the innovativeSprayer 5 credit Alejandro Tagliafico SIMS and Southern Cross University 1024x576 Australian scientists use V22 Cloud to help protect the Great Barrier Reef “Cloud Brightening” concept.

The idea behind it: Every second trillion of small salt crystals are collected from the seawater and then sprayed into the air by a turbine. The salt crystals then mix with low-lying clouds so the clouds become brighter and reflect more sunlight back into space, therefore shading the reef and cooling the seawater.

The Australian research team partnered with EmiControls who built a special turbine for this important project: the V22Cloud.

In our region, Tecpro Australia is the exclusive distributor for EmiControls. We proudly distribute their dust control, odour control and disinfection solutions. The V22Cloud is another example that demonstrates the versatility and power of this range.
