Atmospheric Water Generation Technology (AWG) is taking condensation to a whole new level by producing pure drinking water that’s renewable, cost-effective and eco-friendly. SciTech Now sits down with the AWG CEO Moses West to learn more about how this phenomenal unit operates and how it’s helping with global water crisis needs.
Clean water in time of disaster, emergencies or drought is a commodity that can be hard to acquire. It requires money and energy to obtain. With very little resources to turn to, government officials and safety officers are limited in how effectively they can get water to those who need it the most.
AWG has created a way to produce water inexpensively when and where needed. The AWG 5000 is a unit comprised of three modules: water production, water treatment and power production. It helps transform the atmospheric humidity into drinking water, which means it makes water from the air in the same manner that rain is made from the atmosphere.
Air is pulled though a filter, condensed, pumped into a water tank, filtered and stored for use. The unit is designed to be placed anywhere, and is constructed from high-grade stainless steel for durability in a wide range of climates. This is ideal for drier climates that don’t necessarily have the means to generate large multitudes of water daily, but depend on water for agricultural needs and survival. The guaranteed clean water can help save lives and communities by providing a fundamental resource from what we already have -- air.
Aquifers draw water from underground but AWG is changing that by relieving a lot of the stress aquifers face. Climate change is happening and the Earth is at risk of running out of water. Leaders across the world are taking notice, which is why AWG is responsible for supplying systems to large-scale military, government and business organizations around the world.
