  3. 3.  James J Reidy discovered the concept behind the technology 20 years ago.  In 1998 research and development began and in 2002 Air to Water Technology was integrated.  Atmospheric water generator (AWG) is a electricity-powered device that uses the dehumidification principle to make pure drinking water out of the moisture present in the air.  From centuries, many people worldwide devised different methods to produce drinking water.  Many forget the fact that sufficient water is readily available in the air due to atmospheric water cycle that can be tapped easily. 1
  4. 4. As the working principle of AWG is based on the Dehumidifier to extract water from moist air. A dehumidifier sucks in air from one end, takes the moisture out of it, and then blows it back out again. The moisture drips through into a collection tank. Similarly, water vapor in the air is condensed by cooling the air below its dew point, exposing the air to desiccants, or pressurizing the air in AWG. 2

  6. 6. In this type, a compressor circulates refrigerant through a condenser and then surrounding air is cooled by an evaporator coil. A controlled-speed fan pushes filtered air over the coil. This lowers the air temperature to its dew point, causing water to condense. The resulting water is then passed into a holding tank with purification and filtration system to keep the water pure. It reduces the risk posed by viruses and bacteria which may be collected from the ambient air on the evaporator coil by the condensing water. 4

  10. 10. This method uses a solution of chemical salts to pull water out of the air. Salt is a natural desiccant, which means that it draws and holds moisture. The technology may use liquid or solid desiccants to pull water from the air (like Lithium bromide, Silica gel). In desiccant based water generators, humid air passes over a salt mixture. The wet salt is then heated to the boiling point. The steam is condensed and routed to filters for processing. The resulting water is clean and free of chemicals. This is mostly applied in large-scale levels like the military or industrial units. 8

  12. 12. Clean and pure can be obtained due to processes of multi filtration. Eliminates hazards caused by viruses, bacteria, pesticides and heavy metal contaminants. Rich oxygen contained in the water improves metabolism of your body. Tastes sweeter and better. Once connected to the power supply, it can supply hot & cold 10
  13. 13. The product price of an AWG is higher compared to municipal. AWGs face a challenge with sandy areas such as deserts Climate is an important factor for AWG machines to run efficiently. 11

  17. 17.  Self-filling water bottle harvests clean drinking water from the air.  Today’s steel pipes will soon be replaced with tomorrow’s air pipes where there is shortage of water. 15
  18. 18.  Despite widespread water pollution and shortages of drinking water, there is an abundance of water around us – from the air that we breathe it doesn’t matter where you are – even in the desert.  Several water treatment methods exist to tap these sources, from traditional methods to modern techniques .  Water harvesting and treatment technologies that are solar or wind powered is the most environmentally friendly way to extract pure quality water from the air or sea at a low cost.  The excellent information is that these technologies are now commercially available. 16
