Creating Water from Air around the World

  • Watergen provides water from air to an orphanage in Bukhara

    • Uzbekistan is a country in desperate need of a secure water supply as it is “double landlocked,” and the city of Bukhara in particular has recently been experiencing a serious water shortage.
    • It’s neighbor countries have, in recent years, insisted on building hydro-power dams at the headwaters for the two main rivers bringing freshwater supply into Uzbekistan, Amu Darya and Syr Darya. The dams undermined Uzbekistan’s ability to use both rivers as sources for freshwater.
    • Since May 2019, Watergen’s GEN-M AWG has provide clean fresh drinking water created from air to hundreds of children and staff living in an orphanage in Bukhara.
  • Watergen provides water from air to a school in Costa Rica

    • The Costa Rican Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers (AyA) has had to impose water cuts that affect some communities in the Greater Metropolitan Area (GAM) and the rest of the country.
    • The shortage condition is associated with the El Niño effect, which has caused drought conditions in the province. Water flow in rivers decreased due to lack of rain, causing reductions in aquifers.
    • Watergen installed a GEN-350 water from air generator in the International Christian School located in San Miguel de Santo Domingo. It is the first school in Central America and the second in Latin America providing children with our fresh drinking water.
  • Watergen installed its medium scale AWG, the GEN-M in an elementary school in Curepto,  Chile

    Chile’s economy is largely based on mines that require a substantial proportion of the country’s total available water resources for their operation, leaving only the balance available for the rest of of the country. As a result, the population suffers in terms of both quantity and quality of domestic water. Watergen installed our medium capacity water from air generator, the GEN-M, in a school located in Curepto in April 2019.

  • Watergen provides water from air to a girls school in Sierra Leone, West Africa

    • The average life expectancy for a Sierra Leonean is only 56 years, one of the lowest in the world. Infections and parasites, mostly found in contaminated water, are the main cause of death in Sierra Leone.
    • Almost half of the population does not have access to a regulated water source for drinking. Most of the drinking sources are unsafe freestanding water, such as ponds, and unregulated wells.
    • A GEN-350 water from air generator was placed in St. Joseph’s Girls School in Freeport, providing students and staff with safe-drinking water.
  • Watergen provided a fundamental lifeline of drinking water to the people of Hanoi, Vietnam

    • Only 39% of the rural population in Vietnam has access to safe water and sanitation.
    • Almost 80% of the diseases in Vietnam are caused by polluted water.
    • Watergen has donated a GEN-M to the city of Hanoi, celebrating 25 years of diplomatic relations between Israel and Vietnam.
  • After devastation from monsoons, Watergen provided water from the air in Kerala India

    • Floods in the southern Indian state of Kerala killed more than 410 people, the worst flooding in 100 years.
    • More than 1 million people were left homeless in the 3,200 emergency relief camps set up in the area.
    • Maintaining sanitation and preventing disease in relief camps housing more than 800,000 people was a significant challenge.
    • Two GEN-350 units were installed in Alappuzha and Pathanamthitta districts of Kerala by Watergen and TATA Trusts.
    • Following the seminary manager’s special request, a GEN-350 is still operating in Kerala, providing clean drinking water to staff and visitors to the seminary.
  • Watergen worked with the Red Cross and FEMA to provide vital relief to communities hit by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Michael

    • 2017-2018 has been marked by hurricanes of record ferocity, damage and death tolls in the thousands.
    • Hurricanes aftermath: Hundreds of thousands of people are left without drinking water after floods disable the water systems.
    • Hurricane aftermath: Whether water supplies are destroyed by high winds or overrun by contaminants, a compromised water supply is a matter of life and death.
    • Watergen is continuously working with the American Red Cross and FEMA in the US and sent Large Scale and Gen-350 machines to assist people by providing clean and safe drinking water in the aftermath of Hurricanes Hervey, Irma and Michael.
  • One month pilot in India – providing fresh drinking water to ~2,000 people every day

    • There is not a single Indian city that can fully meet the requirements for potable water from its taps.
    • India is high on the list of the countries that cannot met demand for access to clean water close to homes.
    • As much as 40% of city water is lost due to pipe leaks and thefts via unauthorized connections.
    • In a pilot project, Watergen provided water to tens of thousands of people in New Delhi, and presented Prime Minister Modi with a work-plan that potentially can solve the water crisis in India.
