For nearly three decades, Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) has hosted the annual World Water Week, which it describes as “the annual focal point for the globe’s water issues.” The 2019 World Water Week, which took place in late August of that year, addressed the theme of “Water for society – Including all.”
For the 2019 World Water Week, thousands of water experts, policymakers, business professionals, and more from hundreds of countries and organizations convened to discuss how people can band together to innovate new solutions for ensuring global access to water. As this year’s theme suggested, conversations focused on how nobody should be left behind in the quest to eliminate water scarcity across the world.
In deciding on 2019’s theme, SIWI and World Water Week acknowledged that water shortages and contaminated water sources disproportionately affect different global communities. In World Water Week’s own words, “not everybody is impacted in the same way by too little, too much or too dirty water.” To address this theme, World Water Week looked at the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), among the many uses of which are correlating water shortages to issues such as poverty, gender inequality, and war.
Encompassed in the SDGs and 2019’s World Water Week theme were the following questions:
At TUAFI, our solution utilizes atmospheric water generation (AWG) to create clean water that can be distributed to communities across the world. In this process, ambient moisture is converted to water.
AWG machines have existed for decades, but they often struggle to produce large enough quantities of water to properly and sustainably supply the needs of a community or region. They also don’t effectively filter water or function at humidity levels below 35 percent. Our AWG solution addresses all these concerns, and in doing so, it achieves sustainable water generation that serves all people.
We achieve AWG in our AWG factories, which can be built anywhere and generate enough water to ship, in fully biodegradable water bottles, to any communities that need it. Our fully solar-powered, temperature- and humidity-controlled factories draw in outside air — an unlimited resource — and pass it through two state-of-the-art filters before converting it to water. After the water is generated, we again filter out all possible contaminants. We then add minerals to the water as required by local and regional authorities. Only then is the water ready to package and distribute. Each scalable factory can generate 10,000 liters of pure water per day as a baseline, ensuring that anyone who needs water can access it without harming the environment in any way.
Our AWG factories provide the exact type of inclusive, sustainable global water crisis solution that the 2019 World Water Week theme sought to find. Click here to view our Fundable page and learn more about how we can combat the global water crisis while leaving no one behind.
