Israeli Startup Turns Air into Water – Nadan Feldman
(dailyalert.org, Jan. 2, 2015)

Water-Gen has developed equipment that manufactures clean drinking water from the air and from polluted water quickly, efficiently and cheaply in almost any climate and with a minimal use of energy and electricity.

    Some 80% of the world’s population lives in regions with inadequate supplies of water. Water pollution and the diseases it transmits are the single largest cause of death in the world.

    “We provide 10 times more water for the same kilowatt unit, and five times more than any similar device that ever existed,” says founder Arye Kohavi. “When I was a company commander in a reconnaissance unit in the Israel Defense Forces, the issue of supplying water to front line forces interested me a lot. You’re in Lebanon or Gaza and you have no water, so they have to supply you with it by convoys or by helicopter. The problem weighed on me for over 20 years until a solution started to take shape.” “We sell our devices to seven armies, without a competitor in the world.”  (Ha’aretz)
