Airowater Private Limited is India’s pioneering Atmospheric Water Generator Company using green technology that harvests water from the humidity in the air. It was born out of the idea to provide an innovative, sustainable, and affordable solution to meet the increasing demand for freshwater.
The 2019 water crisis in India was most notably felt in the city of Chennai in Tamil Nadu. On 19 June 2019, Chennai city officials declared that “Day Zero”, or the day when almost no water is left as all the four main reservoirs supplying water to the city had run dry. Rampant digging of Bore wells resulting in lowering of groundwater and low rainfall in the last few years have added to the water woes. Broken water carrying pipes from the sump above ground is contaminated – residents describing it as “muddy” with floating particles of dirt visible. As a result, the companies and households are completely dependent on tankers and plastic bottles for their water supplies.
Citing the challenges, Airowater started operations in Chennai in 2018 with the focus on the retail segment. The company is witnessing increasing demand from industrial, corporate and retail sectors in the region.
