Although the concept of extracting water from the air is
not new, the technology to make it drinkable and available
to the mass market has never been perfected until now. Water
from Air Technology utilizes the natural moisture content
in the air to create pure, high-quality drinking water.
Nature provides this unlimited water source in the form
of humidity, and Water Master developed a unique "Crystallization"
process to tap into this resource. By comparison, a dehumidifier
produces water as a by-product of the dehumidification process
using condensation, or a "sweating" technique.
Technology takes this process further by lowering the temperature
enough to freeze moisture into ice crystals, which effectively
does away with pollutants and other airborne impurities
right from the start, even before filtration and sterilization.
Clean, pure water is therefore produced more efficiently.
Populations without access to safe drinking water
from The World's Water-The Biennial Report on Freshwater
Resources (Gleick 1998)
About 99.7% of the earth's water is contained in undrinkable
forms such as oceans, underground, icecaps and glaciers.
Due to increased contamination and pollution both above
and below the ground, the condition of the remaining 0.3%
is now questionable with many countries finding it increasingly
difficult to source drinkable water that is of an acceptable
quality. Water Master provides a viable solution to this
problem by tapping into a fully renewable resource that
holds vast amounts of fresh water -- the Earth's atmosphere.
At any given moment, the atmosphere contains about 12,900
cubic kilometers (3,095 cubic miles) of water in the form
of water vapor.
Throughout history clashes between and within countries
have occurred over water and its supply. Many people believe
that in the future, conflicts and even wars will be waged
over water supplies; particularly as uncontaminated water
becomes increasingly scarce.
The world's water is constantly moving in what is called
the Water Cycle or Hydrologic cycle. This means that although
water locations may change between the oceans, the atmosphere,
rivers and lakes and below the ground, the volume of water
always remains constant. The significant difference today
compared to decades and centuries past is the negative impact
that humans have had on usable fresh water. This impact
is made in the form of pollution/contaminates, de-forestation,
run-off and damming. The net result is that many countries
in the world can no longer rely on their drinkable water
supplies. Even countries in the western world with traditionally
reliable water supplies are now suffering from ground water
contamination and the effects of aging water pipes.
It is a sad fact that the World Health Organization estimates
that a child dies every 15 seconds from disease attributable
to unsafe drinking water, inadequate sanitation, or poor
hygiene. We at Water Master are convinced that our technology
will contribute to the reduction of this tragic circumstance
and help to replenish the world's supply of safe drinking
