WaterMaker produces water from Thin Air

Can you imagine if the water is produced from thin air?  Is it possible to produce water in a country like India where many women often have to walk several miles to collect drinking water for their families? But, it is possible with WaterMaker India.

Meher Bhandara, the founder of WaterMaker India also doubted how water could be produced from air when she first heard the concept and technology. But today, she along with her team of eight people made it possible to provide clean drinking water in several places in rural India.

Her team first heard about the technology from a scientist in the US in 2004. Later, they learned more about the technology and were astonished by it. They decided to use this technology and wanted to manufacture Atmospheric Water Generators (AWGs) in order to provide clean and pure drinking water to people in need in rural India. At present, they are producing up to 5000 litres of water each day, and they have the largest range of AWGs. They are exporting these AWGs to several other countries as well.

The technology under AWGs is simple. It works on the condensation of humidity in the air and the resultant water is collected. The water is passed through various filters. As a result, clean and pure drinking water is produced. When Meher and team displayed these machines in an exhibition in Delhi, several people were astonished about the technology used by these machines. As soon as the water drops are formed from thin air, people could not believe their eyes and they had checked whether there were any pipes installed secretly in the machines.

WaterMakers require no water source. They just need energy source like electricity to produce water from air. The quality of water produced from these machines is compatible with the standards of WHO/BIS.  This technology is very effective in areas where the temperature ranges from 25 to 32 degrees Celsius and humidity conditions are at least 65-75% or more.
