Extracting water from the air
The air carry between 6gr and up to 55gr of water/Kg of Air. By moving 900ton of Air (with our standard unit) will divide an average of 2,700Kg of water per hour, 65ton water per day.
In California, with a low relative humidity, we increased air intake of 2,700ton per day.

Solar Powered Atmosphere Water Generation
Water procurement through the use of ultra efficient refrigeration technology for condensation of the air.
• Totally independent from groundwater resource
• Provides unlimited water resourse
• No negative effects on the environment
• Avoids Transportation and Storage of water to a great extent as water is produced at the point and time of use and above all;
• It does not required energy from the grid
Clear air contains water; one estimate of the volume of water in the atmosphereat any one time is about 4,100 cubic miles (mi3) or 15,900 km3, about 0.001% of the total Earth’s water volume of about 332,500,000 mi3(1,385,000,000 km3).
If all of the water in the atmosphere rained down at once, it would only cover the globe to a depth of 2.5 centimeters, about 1 inch and we have it fresh and complete new every 9 days, already desalinated.
The EAWD – AWG operation seeks to follow this principle and without negative impact at the environment.
Countries that are home to 25% of Earth’s population face an increasingly urgent risk – the prospect of running out of water. 47% of the world population is going to experience water scarcity by 2030
Climate change heightens this risk
Rainfall becomes more erratic – and the water supply becomes less reliable.
As the days grow hotter, more water evaporates from reservoirs just as demand for water increases.

Mapping the world’s water shortages
Human water consumption has soared. In some parts of the planet, the demand is greater than rivers or groundwater can sustain.
Schoolbooks show a simple picture of the water cycle—water evaporates from the ocean, drifts in clouds over land, falls as rain, flows in rivers to the sea—that is no longer accurate. Humans intrude on the cycle now: Each year we extract 4,000 cubic kilometers of water, eight times more than a century ago. We consume it in kitchens and bathrooms, factories and power plants; we use it to irrigate our crops. Growing populations and aspirations drive a growing demand for water.

The formula to calculate is:
Power Consumption x Cost of electricity / Water production rate= Water production cost.
