Atmospheric Water Generation System

Despite being called the "planet of water," Earth has a surprisingly small amount of usable fresh water. Research by the World Water Forum and others reveals that of the 1.386 billion cubic kilometers of water on Earth, 97.5% is seawater. Only 2.5% is freshwater, and a mere 0.8% of that is accessible for human use. Most freshwater is trapped in glaciers, snow, and permafrost, or lies deep underground. Consequently, only 0.01% of the Earth's water is available as surface water in rivers and lakes.

Currently, 500 million of the world's 8 billion people lack access to water, and 1.5 billion experience "water stress" due to pollution and drought. An additional 2.1 billion live in water-stressed environments, particularly in the arid regions of Africa and Asia.

With the global population projected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, those suffering from water poverty could rise from 500 million to as many as 4 billion. This alarming forecast underscores the urgent need for action to address the global water crisis. How aware are we of this critical issue, and what steps are we taking to mitigate this impending catastrophe?

Water is essential for almost all life on Earth.

Although it is represented by the chemical formula H2O, we commonly refer to it as "water," a testament to how familiar it is in our daily lives.

Water is unique among substances, having a very high specific heat capacity compared to other molecules, making it slow to heat and cool. This characteristic significantly contributes to the stability of our body temperature, as about 70% of our body is composed of water. An example of this property in everyday life is the use of hot water bottles in winter, which our parents would prepare for us to stay warm on cold nights.

Water on Earth cycles continuously, driven by the sun's heat. It evaporates from the oceans and land, rising into the atmosphere as vapor. This vapor cools and condenses into tiny water droplets, forming clouds. Within the clouds, these droplets grow larger and eventually fall back to the ground as rain or snow. The precipitation then flows through rivers and underground streams, returning to the oceans.

Skywater harnesses this natural water cycle within our devices, ensuring a smooth process to produce clean and safe water for our customers.

Skywater Team Wins 2018 XPRIZE for Generating Water from Air

In the 2018 XPRIZE competition for generating water from air, the Skywater team emerged victorious. The "Water Abundance XPRIZE," launched by XPRIZE in 2016, aimed to develop a device that could extract a minimum of 2,000 liters of freshwater per day from the atmosphere using only 100% renewable energy. The Skysource / Skywater Alliance developed WEDEW (Wood to Energy Deployed Water), which won the $1.5 million prize.

WEDEW combines a device that cools warm air to create condensation in a tank, storing the resulting water, with a system that generates the necessary heat and humidity through the pyrolysis of biomass such as wood chips and coconut shells. This biomass, if left in nature, could contribute to wildfires and release significant amounts of CO2, making its use for water generation doubly beneficial. Additionally, the sludge produced after pyrolysis can be reused as biochar, rich in organic material, to improve soil quality.

WEDEW can also operate using solar energy or battery power in regions without abundant wood resources. In all cases, it provides clean water in areas where water scarcity or high costs make potable water inaccessible. Currently, all operational WEDEW systems are non-biomass models. The biomass-based WEDEW system was specifically developed for the Water Abundance XPRIZE, and the $1.5 million prize will be used in collaboration with non-profit organizations to produce and distribute this system.

The XPRIZE Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Peter Diamandis, famously known as a "charismatic figure in the world of innovation." Based on the West Coast of the United States, the foundation is supported by numerous business leaders and entrepreneurs and continuously supports challenges posed to innovators worldwide.

This foundation runs the "XPRIZE," a prize competition open to participants globally.

The competition's theme is "developing technology that benefits humanity." By awarding substantial prize money to teams that meet the criteria and win the competition, the foundation encourages motivation to tackle various themes. As a result, it aims to expedite the resolution of global challenges.
