Our earth is thirsty! 

The World Health Organization predicts that in the year 2040 more than 40% of earth population will suffer from severe water shortage. As the demand for water is growing and is projected to overshoot supply by 40% in 2 decades, severe water stress is to be expected! Adding to that the Climate changes that already affects the water supply in many countries and urbanization will make more people dependent upon often scarce local water resources! 

Water vapour is all arround us!

Water exists in three forms: solid, liquid and gas. Solid water is ice. Liquid water is what we swim in and drink. Gaseous water, or water vapour, isn’t something you can see, but it’s part of the air around you.

Under normal circumstances, water vapour enters the atmosphere through evaporation and leaves by condensation (rain, snow, etc.). 

Air is made up of mostly of nitrogen and oxygen, with tiny amounts of argon, carbon dioxide and other gases. Water vapour also is part of the mix, but the amount varies. Depending on the temperature, the amount of water vapour in the air ranges from .001 percent to about 4 percent.

On humid days, there’s a lot of water vapour in the air. You feel hotter and stickier than on less-humid days because the water vapour is slowing down the evaporation of sweat. (As sweat evaporates, your skin feels cooler.) So if sweating isn’t cooling you off, you’ll probably head to a spot with air conditioning, a process that cools and takes water vapour out of the air. Exact this principle is used to remove the water vapour from thin air with atmospheric Water generators.

 

Working principle of the Atmospheric Water Generator (AWG) 

Humid air passes several filters while entering the AWG. The water vapor in the air condenses to waterdrops, because the surface temperature of the evaporator is lower than the dew point temperature of the air. The condensate water accumulates in the water collector and drains to the bottom tank for storage. After activated carbon and reverse osmosis treatments, UV sterilization and a couple of other processes this water is potable! 

Hybrid Powered Atmospheric Water Generators

Our modular hybrid powered atmospheric water generators are specially designed and built for the production of fresh drinking water out of the air that surrounds us. 

Sparkling clear freshwater produced without expensive carbonaceous fuels, CO2, refrigerants or expensive maintenance! 

The heart of our system is a sustainable new technology. Years of intensive studies and laboratory tests stood at the birth of this new era of complete sustainable cooling technology. A solar energy powered thermal acoustic energy converter transfers the heat from the sun into the used cold for the freshwater production. By using soundwaves to convert sun power into cold, this energy conversion is totally green and clean! This sophisticated technology uses no chemicals, as the working fluid is Argon an inert gas (GWP=0).  For these reasons the solar powered thermal acoustic convertor operates without any mechanical moving parts nor uses precious materials. This makes the convertor maintenance free yielding a service life of at least 20 years! Resulting in significant lower total cost of ownership compared to other traditional cooling solutions. 

The beauty of this cooling solution is that it doesn’t only work on the power of the sun, but also works on waste heat from ovens, combustion gasses or other processes can be used to power this energy converter. For instance, the exhaust fumes from a gas motor generator combination used in an anaerobic digester plant can produce sufficient energy to keep the energy converter running and so even produce precious freshwater during the night times when the sun doesn’t shine!
