Can you create water out of thin air?
An Israeli company is doing just that and is providing its technology to militaries in seven nations including the U.S., Israel and an un-named Arab nation.
Water-Gen, the only water tech company included on Fast Company’s list of “The World’s Most Innovative Companies 2014” has a lot to teach California, which is going through one of the driest winters in modern history.
This is exactly what California Gov. Jerry Brown thought as well and that’s why he recently signed a cooperative research and development agreement with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in fields such as water conservation technology. Brown said he hoped Israeli water technology could help California deal with its record-breaking drought.
Originally designed to hydrate troops in severe combat situations, Water-Gen created a water generating unit that turns air moisture into drinking water. That’s right: It creates water out of thin air. The solar or electric-powered water generator, which can sit on the ground or in vehicles such as tanks, produces between 10 and 20 gallons of fresh, cold, drinking water per day.
For California, Water-Gen’s water-generating technology has great potential to serve those located in the state’s Central Valley, a large, dry and rural area.
Basically, an air filtering unit faces the outside, extracting humidity from the air. The filter works like an air dehumidifier or air conditioner: It sucks in air moisture and removes toxins.
Then, this clean air enters GENius™, their unique heat exchanging system. GENius™ produces liquid water from the humidity. This liquid water collects at the bottom of the unit and then fills up water tanks. Finally, it flows to a tap located within the vehicle.
In addition to the water generator, Water-Gen has created technologies that produce drinkable water from various sources, including air conditioning units’ wasted drops. Spring, a newer product, is a portable water purifier that can clean any water source, no matter how toxic.
Although Spring was first designed to address military challenges, it can also be used in first responder situations. In fact, when the Israel Defense Forces sent a team to help after Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, they used Spring to aid troops and typhoon victims.
