A pioneering technology that provides a cost-effective and sustainable source of mineralized drinking water by harnessing the humidity from the air has been officially launched commercially in the Middle East.
Veragon Water Solutions’ innovative Air-to-Water system provides potable water in hot or tropical environments and has been used by its customers, including the Italian Armed Forces, UN WFP and NATO, in some of harshest climates in the world. The incredible technology has now arrived in the UAE through Veragon Water Solutions Middle East Ltd, a partnership between Eshara Capital and Veragon Water Solutions.
The firm unveiled its water solution to VIP delegates during its official launch event at its new headquarters at Abu Dhabi Global Markets. UK-based Veragon Water Solutions Ltd was founded by Dr. Alessio Lucattelli, an Italian medical doctor who began researching the idea of Air-to-Water technologies after taking part in relief work in Haiti. One of the major problems faced by Dr. Lucattelli and the aid organizations was the lack of access to safe water to drink or to clean vital medical equipment. After successful trials, the process of water capture was developed and expanded on a commercial scale.
The result is Veragon’s pioneering ‘Air to Water’ system, which has the capacity to produce up to 1,000 liters per day and can produce safe drinking water at the point-of-use for as little as USD0.0082 per liter. The water produced by Veragon’s Air-to-Water systems is certified to World Health Organization Standards and it has been approved for use in the GCC region.
Veragon is in the process of launching four exciting pilot projects in the UAE with large organizations who are actively seeking a way to find a sustainable source of drinking water at the point-of-need with no logistic trial to help reduce costs and their own carbon footprint.
