ATMOSPHERE WATER GENERATOR (AWG)
With the application of the Atmosphere Water Generator (AWG), water is produced from a hitherto unused resource; the air. in order to conceptualize this, it is important to consider that the humidity in the air contains 10 times more water than all rivers of the World put together and that this water is distributed widely across all regions.
The basic technology used for the AWG originally came from the mining sector and utilizes the humidity borne in the air to produce drinking water by means of condensation. While the machines used in the mining sector were primarily designed for cooling down the air, the resulting condensation produced water as a by-product. This same technology has been transformed by EAWC Technologies in such a manner as to be able to produce drinking water. The machines employed draw in huge volumes of air, cool it down to the dew point and collect the resulting condensed water, which is then filtered and mineralized. Through this process, pure drinking water is obtained and that meets the quality standards of the WHO. In regions with high temperatures and high humidity levels, a single machine can generate up to 10,000 gallons of water per day, thus potentially providing the water supply for entire villages.

Further potential uses of the process:
The ability to produce water from the air is of benefit wherever drinking water is in short supply. Potential benefactors are therefore primarily the following:
Uses and Benefits
The AWG technology allows water to be produced at any location in the World. It is independent of stationary water resources. The economic benefit is enhanced by the fact that cold air generated in the condensation process can be used for the air-conditioning of buildings. On account of its decentralized manner of producing water, diseases borne by existing water sources cannot contaminate the water produced and therefore are unable to spread. The process has the advantage of having no negative impact on the environment. There is no need to transport and store water at great expense as the water is produced when and where it is needed.
