The concept of an air to water generator has been around for thousands of years, tracing back as early as the ancient Incas. Despite its storied use, the process could never be properly commercialized and introduced on a global scale. The most recent iteration of the air to water generator, called an atmospheric water generator (AWG), was released more than 20 years ago. While slight improvements were made to its mechanics since its introduction, there is a long way to go. This is not to say that the AWG is not fit for purpose, but it will never provide the water quantity as advertised but more like 50% reduced efficiency when factoring in the variable conditions of ambient temperature and humidity.

Xpitrade is currently working with a US Group that is hard at working in developing and upgrading the AWGs to resolve the machine’s most pressing challenges on scalability and reliability. Now, the AWG factory is poised to transform how the globe obtains its potable drinking water.

In tandem with our EPIC water management solutions provided- Xpitrade is still offering AWGs for remote and greenhouse farming. The reason being is that while the AWG efficiency may only be 50-60% at most, it still provides enough water when management with the EPIC subsurface irrigation system as it saves 60% in water use compared to drip. That fact alone allows farmers to grow more crops regardless of the efficiency limitation.
