In modern society the utilization of potential is very widespread. The gravitational potential energy of water can be used for hydro-electric; the utilization of thermodynamic potential provides the power for human in various aspects. Air humidity potential caused by the moisture content difference in the air also can be exploited. This hidden potential energy is inexhaustible, clean and pollution-free.

Air humidity potential can be applied in areas such as air-conditioning and refrigeration. Machine like evaporative cooler and dehumidifier use the air humidity potential to carry on the heat and mass transfer. At present, environmental protection and energy-saving is mostly concerned...
