Podcast Highlights Progress of Energy and Water Development Corp. (EAWD) in Fight Against Drought with Patent-pending Technology

  • Significant drought has long been recognized as a major climactic concern as some of the earth’s populations struggle to ensure they have sufficient water
  • Amid drought conditions currently raging in Mexico City, some residents have signed an MOU with green tech engineering services company Energy and Water Development Corp. to harvest water directly from the atmosphere using EAWD’s patent-pending technology
  • The planned water generation facility is expected to produce about 3.2 million liters of water annually, with expectations of adding millions more in later building phases
  • The facility is a technological leap over traditional dry area water-collecting methods, where residents spread sheets to draw humidity off fog clouds, a method used in places such as the Atacama Desert, where rain has not fallen in some places during the past 400 years

Concerns about climate change have grown in recent years as scientists raise warnings about shifts in the world’s biomes, but one climate concern that is not new is the presence of drought conditions in select parts of the planet.

Science fiction has long envisioned the idea of harvesting water from the air as a solution to drought, whether through the “windtraps” of the Dune series in the 1960s, or Luke Skywalker’s moisture farm in the original Star Wars of the 1970s.

Now, Florida-based green tech engineering services company Energy and Water Development (OTCQB: EAWD) is putting the idea of harvesting drinking water from the atmosphere into real world application. Working with governmental institutions as well as NGOs (non-governmental organizations), the company is using its own patent-pending technology design to come up with energy and water solutions in areas where they are in short supply.

“Energy and Water Development Corp. is a leading engineering company that is focused on the innovation of the generation of sustainable water and energy supply. We … put together state-of-the-art technologies that will allow (us) to secure the provision of water and energy in any kind of situations in any part of the world,” company CEO Irma Velazquez said during an interview with The Harvest Podcast (https://ibn.fm/wgO5i). The podcast is a series that turns the spotlight on thought leaders, experts and breakthrough companies who make “disruptive and impactful contributions to society through groundbreaking initiatives” (https://ibn.fm/oHrT3).

“When you talk about water supply, you see that the challenge is about the geopolitical situation, the infrastructure, in general,” Velazquez said. “(Our) main objective is to be an evolving company that goes and works with innovation … and helps those who need projects onsite that (will) be sustainable in response to the new demands of the circumstances in climate change.”

The idea of extracting water from the air has been put into practice in other locations with far less developed resources. In Chile’s famed Atacama Desert, regarded as one of the driest places on earth where, in some parts, rain has not fallen for hundreds of years, Chileans have learned to harvest water from fog that comes inland from the ocean by “putting up plastic sheets with pans underneath. The fog collects on the plastic and drips into the pans, giving the people water for crops and drinking” (https://ibn.fm/LYKh2).

EAWD’s solutions to tackling water scarcity and energy challenges represent a self-sufficient energy supply Atmosphere Water Generation system and Off-grid EV Charging stations. The Off-Grid Atmosphere Water Generation Plant is at the heart of a joint memorandum of understanding (“MOU”) EAWD signed in December with residents in a municipality of Mexico City where drought conditions are leaving residents of one of the world’s largest cities at risk of running entirely out of water before the rainy season begins in the fall (https://ibn.fm/lgqOu).

Under the agreement, EAWD will deploy its water generation plant in a 5,000-square-meter facility that is expected to produce approximately 3.2 million liters of water annually by extracting moisture directly from the air. Although those figures are an average, it’s a bit like turning on a water tap in the desert that runs 24 hours a day, every day. Additional phases are planned to then increase the size of the facility to produce millions more liters of water than the original plant.
