Jalimudi – Where Water Comes from Air

Published on May 10th, 2009 | by

The villagers of Jalimudi, a small village in the state of Andhra Pradesh in Southern India, have been suffering from a shortage of water for years. However things have changed, as they are now getting water from the air as a result of technology developed by Air Water International Corporation, a company that manufactures air to water machines that can offer consumers from 25 liters to over 5,000 liters of pure filtered drinking water daily.

Jalimudi is the first village in the world to have a sustained water supply that does not originate from the sea, underground water sources, or supplies brought in from elsewhere. The “Jalimudi – Air Water Station” has drawn major attention with over 60,000 hits to the company’s web site to view the short video detailing the project and its major impact on the local villagers.

In the words of Michael Zwebner, president of the company,

“The local inhabitants of Jalimudi have immediate and constant access to clean clear and pure water 24/7. This exciting ‘Jalimudi – Air Water Station’ project will be we believe the first of many as the word gets out and around of the amazing technology and its factual application to real use. Our unique water machines will now sustain the lives of the locals, and provide a real solution for the water needs of all the local inhabitants. Interest is high, and application for information about the project and how it can be duplicated or adapted in other areas of the world, is coming to us on an ever increasing basis.”

  • While this air-water recovery system sounds like a great idea, It could not possibly be as efficient as a few miles of PEX pipe, a pump and filter system. It will only function in a very humid climate, and requires much more electrical energy than a simple pump and filter, and thus is not very environmentally sensitive. Sure it’s interesting, but that technology is in my basement keeping it dry, so its no new big thing. My money is on large solar stills and solar cell powered pumps, rather than bulky machines chewing up the amps!
