Water-Gen (Israël): water from air to anticipate world water crisis

Medium-Scale Atmospheric Water Generator
Generates up to 900 liters of clean water every day.

Schools, hospitals, commercial and residential buildings and more can now take advantage of their very own on-site renewable water source.
Requiring no infrastructure other than an electricity supply, the GEN-350 is a medium-scale mobile water generator, with a daily capacity of 900 liters.
The GEN-350 is the world’s most energy-efficient Atmospheric Water Generator (AWG) module of its kind, thanks to Watergen’s patented GENius™, which enables it to generate more water while minimizing electricity consumption. Unlike other AWG solutions that are based on an old, inefficient air conditioning technology, GENius™ includes a one-of-a-kind unique heat exchanger, making it cheaper and more efficient to run.

An integrated energy optimization module of the GEN-350 continuously optimizes water production in accordance with external atmospheric conditions (day/night, season, geographic location, altitude etc.). A multi-barrier air filtration cascade ensures that the water generated is of high quality, regardless of air quality, and a built-in reservoir and treatment facility continuously circulates the water, keeping it fresh over time.

Watergen was founded in 2009 by Arye Kohavi and then expanded into the US with Watergen USA in 2016. Picked by Foreign Policy magazine in 2014 as one of the world’s leading innovators and among the top 100 “global thinkers,” Kohavi founded Watergen as a result of his experience as an IDF Combat Reconnaissance Company commander. He aspired to create special machines that could help troops on the ground who were serving in arid locations and in need of water (Jerusalem Post). Arye Kohavi holds an MBA and a BA in Economics and Accounting from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
