• Harvesting drinking water from air.

    For off-grid communities, starting in Kenya.

  • Our vision

    We are creating a new source of affordable, clean drinking water for water scarce communities. If you have air, you can have drinking water.

    People running out of water.

    In Kenya and beyond.

    Our co-founder Beth is Kenyan and suffered from having to buy dirty, contaminated water while at university. She created her own water filter and started a successful business selling over 5,000 filters in Kenya in the past 5 years. However she is increasingly coming across areas of Kenya where there's regularly no water available as rivers run dry and the water table drops.


    This problem is not limited to Kenya. The UN estimates that 1.8bn people will experience water scarcity by 2025.

    Water from the air.

    To Help Communities Suffering Drought.

    There is 6x as much water in the air as in all rivers in the world.


    We are using hydrophilic materials to capture this water. If you have air you can have clean, safe drinking water.

    Our solution prototype.

    Generating 10 litres of water per day. Off grid.

    This proof of concept prototype "hacks" existing technology to generate 10 litres of water per day from the air using solar technology.


    We operated this prototype at NASA Ames in Mountain View California, where the relative humidity is c.58%, in line with much of Kenya.

    Our technology at scale.

    Designed for our Kenyan customers, in Kenya.

    We are in the process of designing and prototyping a solution that offers:

    • Clean water at <$0.01 per litre
    • Bundled finance
    • Works off grid
