Device Turns Air Into Drinking Water

Device Turns Air Into Drinking Water
"The system produces 5 to 20 gallons a day of pure, healthy drinking water."

     Tel Aviv, ISRAEL — The world faces an extreme water crisis, and the worst is yet to come.

The statistics alone are staggering: More than 780 million people
By Jake Horowitz
around the world don't have access to clean drinking water. At least 4 billion — two-thirds of the world's population — experience at least one month of water scarcity each year. By 2030, close to half of the world's population is projected to face water shortages.

But what if technology could be leveraged to fix the problem? What if it's possible to build a device that turns air into clean drinking water?

Enter WaterGen. The Israeli-based startup, founded six years ago by Arye Kohavi, is on a mission to help solve the world's water crisis. The company's premise is simple: turn air into clean water.

WaterGen is certainly not the only company attempting to do this. A company called Fontus has raised over $300,000 online to develop a self-filling water bottle that creates water from air and light. ...


  1. No, no, NO! This device does NOT create water from air. This device removes moisture from air and collects it as water. There are many places where this device would not work or work poorly because the humidity would not be high enough. Not really a novel breakthrough, and could possibly be to expensive to run continuously.

  2. Nothing coming out of 'Israel' is intended to
    "help the rest of the world". Not one thing.

  3. How is this different than air conditioners that continually drip water into the sewage system, plants, or empty buckets?
