High-efficiency atmospheric water generators

Produce water from ambient air with high production capacities

  • World Alliance Member
  • Featured Solution
  • Labelled Solution
Label Date April 12, 2021
From France
Maturity stage TRL 6 - Prototype testing 1:1 in lab

The solution fights against water shortage and lack of water in the world. As the steam on the windows in winter, it produces cold to recover water contained in the air. The high-efficiency atmospheric water generators produce pure, natural, drinkable water with a low chemical load and are autonomous and compact. Produced water can be consumed on the production site. The range capacity goes from 3.000 to more than 50.000 liters a day. Customers can expect savings on energy costs and on payback time that is lower than 5 years for a lifespan of 20 years. The energy consumption varies between 30 and 100 W. It is 50 W at 25°C and 70% humidity per litre, a considerable difference from the usual standards. The technology uses different sources of energy: solar, gas or electric, thus having a low environmental impact.

The Environmental Benefits

  • Consumes an average of 50 W to produce 1 liter of water against 350 W for the benchmarks
  • Can operate with different energy sources (gas, solar, electric, thermal...)
  • Fully autonomous industrial capacity generators
  • Do not discharge any effluent and is totally recyclable
  • Can be partially retrofitted to double their useful life

The Financial Benefits

  • Prices per m3 are competitive compared to conventional solutions (osmosis, desalination, etc.)
  • Lifespan is longer than desalination solutions, use very few consumables
