Why the need
The need for clean and safe drinking water is ever-increasing. Groundwater, currently the main source of drinking water, is being depleted at an alarming and unsustainable rate. So we decided to adopt an effective and efficient alternative to benefit the masses at large.
Brief of the project
To mitigate the problem of erratic water supply in rural areas, we have adopted SkyWater’s patented technology to make the most out of atmospheric water generators.
Technology Use/ Collaboration with
SkyWater’s cutting edge technology converts atmospheric moisture content into clean drinking water. These units work anywhere as long as they are exposed to fresh air, and make reasonable quantities of clean drinking water based on a wide variety of temperature and relative humidity conditions.
How it functions
Typical working conditions include a temperature range of 20-45 degrees celsius and a relative humidity range of 30% or higher.
The water produced by these generators is safe and clean. When tested for quality by government-recognized labs, the water showed absence of organic and other dissolved impurities. It is an environment-friendly technology that does not waste large quantities of water, unlike reverse osmosis and desalination systems. An added advantage is the minimal maintenance required when compared to other water filtration systems. SkyWater’s systems require only a simple cleaning of the storage tank and air/water filters every few months.
