SA firm ‘squeezes’ water from thin air

A South African technology firm, Cirrus Water Management, is helping pioneer a technology known as atmospheric water generation, or AWG — in effect, it’s “squeezing” water out of thin air.

He says that although the technology is in the public domain, only a handful of companies worldwide are pursuing it.

The firm’s products, which are modular in nature and fully manufactured in South Africa, are able to produce as much as a thousand litres of water a day, simply by tapping into the water vapour in the earth’s atmosphere. And the water the machines produce is clean and completely safe to drink.

There are two main ways that one can get liquid water from the atmosphere. The first uses desiccant technology, where a material absorbs moisture from the air. The second, which Cirrus employs, uses cooling condensation technology, which, Jones says, uses less energy.

“Bottled water is R3 to R20/litre. Our water costs at most about R2,20/litre during amortisation of the capital expense. Once amortised, you’ll be paying around 70c/litre.”

Energy consumption is not insignificant, however. A 100-litre/day unit consumes about 1,5kW of electricity, or a little less than a domestic kettle. But when connected to solar power, water can be produced cleanly. Bottled water is much more harmful to the environment as it has to be transported, and empty plastic bottles disposed off, Jones says.

Nice location but for hosting a conference they need reliable wifi as mobile phone signal is not an option.

Excellent hotel rooms and facilities. The only negative being the lack of wifi in the rooms.

In my experience almost never opens on time, slow service. They used to be good in the beginning. Now the customer care is lacking.
