A new technology, developed by Watergen, is an atmospheric water generator called Genny, which takes in ambient air through a filter, and cools at its dew point, extracting water through condensation. The water is then purified, mineralized, and is ready and safe to drink. The prototype unit was producing five gallons of clean drinking water per day, but the company expected the final production unit would produce eight gallons a day. It comes with a built-in reservoir and a water treatment system. Large scale units are designed to provide water to approximately 2500 people per day, and can be installed on a rooftop and connected directly to the building’s water grid. The machines only need electricity to operate and can be installed anywhere. A mobile water generator could provide drinking water on the go anywhere at any time. The company also points out that the use of atmospheric water generators could drastically reduce plastic waste. The home unit price has not be set, but it's expected to be less than $1500.
