Tap Water from the Air

Drinking water, affordable, energy-efficient, easy to deploy.

How does our Air-to-Water technology work?

The Air-to-Water unit uses a turbine that pushes air through a heat exchanger. Here the air is cooled and condensation takes place. This process can be controlled with the help of energy from natural sources, but also with traditional energy sources.

Lowering the temperature of air requires minimal energy. When the temperature falls below the dew point, water droplets will form.

These droplets are then collected in a water storage compartment. The actual amount of water that can be produced varies from location to location and depends on average wind speed, ambient temperature, and humidity. Because these conditions change throughout the day and season, the turbine is designed to respond automatically to changing environmental parameters, to ensure constant optimized production of water.

Air-to-Water features:

  • Produce drinking water from the air – no other water source required
  • Up to 5,000 drinking water per day per machine
  • Multiple units can be combined into larger installations, e.g. for 10,000 or 20,000 liters per day
  • Very energy efficient (35 kVA average)
  • Choice of power sources: wind, solar, grid, generator, or hybrid combinations
  • Minimum air temperature: >15°C / 59°F

Where and when is the Air-to-Water technology applicable?

  • for island and rural communities with limited freshwater resources
  • in humanitarian projects in dry areas
  • for disaster relief and in war regions
  • in industrial and commercial settings
  • in CSR company programs

The Air-to-Water unit can be powered by various power sources, including a wind turbine. Check this video to discover the technology used.
