A study by NASA, shows that a third of big groundwater basins are in distress*, and with global warming, rapid urbanisation, industrialisation, agriculture growth and demographic changes, researchers indicated that this crisis is only likely to worsen. This rapidly evolving process is dramatically changing global water availability and accessibility to hundreds of millions around the globe, turning water into a valuable commodity.
Understanding the enormity of the problem, WaterGen solutions are design to bridge this gap, by tapping to a new, unexploited and abundant water source – our atmosphere. To make this resource truly available, it has to be economically smart and energy efficient.
Many major global cities struggle with drinking water availability and quality, while many are located in areas which have optimal climate conditions to sustain water availability via the air, using WaterGen’s technology.
Providing genuine drinking water alternative to millions around the world
Optimal solution to mitigate cities drinking water problems
In many cities, the water system is often polluted and undrinkable. This in turn mandates its residents to be on a contact water hunt, requiring to bring home every day ~20 litres of packaged drinking water per family. In many developing countries, this often-mandatory outlay, is averaged at $1 (USD) per 20 liters or ~5₵ per litre, for local purified packaged well water, and in many developing countries, that outlay can amount to $200 per person per year.
WaterGen’s ability to deliver cost effective and commercially available solutions that generates fresh pure water directly from the atmosphere, at prices that are up to 10 times cheaper than local filtered well water (at developing world prices), is true game changer for many tens of millions.
