An installation generating water from air launched in Bukhara
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- On 14 May 2019, the Ministry of Innovation Development of the Republic of Uzbekistan with the assistance of the Israeli company Watergen Ltd. and the Holon Institute of Technology installed a facility on production of water from the air Gen-350.
The GEN – 350 is a medium-scale atmospheric water-to-air generator (AWG), includes the patented GENiusTM module, the most energy-efficient module in the world. The device produces about 900 liters of pure fresh water every day.
The GEN-350 integrated energy optimization module continuously optimizes water production according to external atmospheric conditions (day / night, season, geographic location, altitude, etc.). The cascade with multi-barrier air filtration provides high quality water, regardless of air quality, and the built-in tank and purification devices continuously circulate water, while maintaining its freshness for a long time.
It should be noted that the atmospheric air is a giant reservoir of moisture and even in dry areas, as a rule, contains more than 6-10 g of water per 1 m3 in air. And 1 km3 of the surface layer of the atmosphere in hot, arid and desert areas of the earth contains up to 20,000 tons of water vapor.
The pilot unit was installed in Bukhara with the assistance of the Ministry of Innovation Development.
During the meeting of the Minister of Innovation Development with the Israeli delegation on 12 May, the installation of the unit in the Muynak district of the Republic of Karakalpakstan will be discussed in two months.
The minister also gave practical suggestions for setting up production of small-volume air-water generator installations to generate clean drinking water from the air for each apartment building.
