Title
(EN) Composition for reducing evaporation at sites both on land and open water
Abstract
(EN)
A blended composition of water conservation measures applied to save water at both on-land and open water sites is disclosed as combining with a higher fatty alcohol constituent, alternatively either a slaked lime constituent or, in substitution thereof, an acidified gypsum constituent containing sulfuric acid. The inorganic constituents provide ionic compounds which when contacted by water release certain ions diffusing faster than others, whence a charge-procuring mechanism causing individual particulate aggregations of the compositions to repel one another results. An amorphous and unemulsified form for the higher fatty alcohol is suggested as important to mitigation or risks of impairing water infiltration into treated soil.
