Rainmaker Air ​to Water ​Technology ​Going to India

A game-changing, commercially viable Dutch technology being brought to India by Kindle Ventures uses the concept of condensation to turn air into fresh water.

The technology can be used in any terrain – however back of beyond like many parts of India – provided the minimum temperature of the area is more than 15 degrees centigrade.

The company's Chief Innovation Officer Gaurav Goenka has signed an MOU with Canadian owned Dutch company Rainmaker World Wide Inc, which holds the patent for this innovation. The core machine is expected to arrive in India by mid-August.

The air to water unit uses a turbine that forces air through a heat exchanger where the air is cooled and condensation takes place. Lowering the temperature of air requires minimal energy.

When the temperature falls below its dew point, water droplets will form which are then collected in the water storage compartment. The actual amount of the water than can be produced depends on the average wind speed, the ambient temperature and the relative humidity.

This “highly efficient” conversion process is applied via a patented “direct-drive” turbine which uses compressors that generate heat. This heat is then used to cool down large amounts of incoming air, which is displaced by using vents.

Goenka says the technology has already garnered massive interest from state governments which are fighting drought and lack of clean water.

Once the technology arrives in August, he will travel to states which are facing the most acute shortage of water to demonstrate the technology.

“The machine requires a minimum of 15 degrees to make water. I have signed an MOU to bring the core technology to India and not the turbine. I intend to make the turbine in India itself,” Goenka adds.
