ISPBC Certified AIR-X by UWS: A Sustainable Drinking Water Solution to California Drought

Untapped Water Systems (UWS) premieres AIR-X ‘water from air’ machine in California at The Luxury Technology Show by Rand Luxury at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Beverly Hills, CA on October 15, 2014, sponsored by Variety and the Wall Street Journal.

ISPBC (International Self-Powered Building Council) awarded UWS’ technology with Autonomous Technology Council (ATC) Certification earlier this year. UWS contributes to ISPBC’s autonomous building (Building2.0) future by offering an innovative, stylish, and sustainable solution to world water security.

The entire state of California is suffering from drought for the first time in 15 years, leaving the state’s total water reservoir storage at 36% of capacity. If below-average rainfall continues in 2015, "more people will feel the direct results of the drought in our cities," says Mark Cowin, director of the California Department of Water Resources (source:L.A. Times). Additional mandatory rationing and water-use restrictions would increase the price of water.

AIR-X utilizes air as a free water source that doesn’t deplete the reservoirs. The unit produces superior quality water that is 75-100% cheaper than bottled water while using less power than a water cooler.

One of the hardest hit drought regions in California is Tulare County. The annual average humidity in Tulare is 79.4%, hitting around 90% in spring and summer. The county also has over 100 days of fog annually.

UWS’s water machines benefit from increased moisture in the air. AIR-X draws water directly from the atmosphere and purifies it with a multipass filtration technology producing 99.9999% bacteria-free water. UWS provides a life-saving solution for people with reduced access to clean water.

The superior AWG (Atmospheric Water Generation) technology by UWS is scalable to meet a variety of needs from personal use to industrial level. The company works directly with developers and architects to create systems suitable for their particular projects.

International Self-Powered Building Council (ISPBC) is a worldwide organization dedicated to advance, develop and drive autonomous Self-Powered Building (Building2.0) innovations and practices.

Untapped Water Systems (UWS) creates atmospheric water generators that make fresh water and purify the air. The AIR-X unit produces hot and cold water by harvesting moisture from the air, condensing and filtering it.
