How Our AWG Technology Works

Hogen Systems generate the highest quantity of water directly from the surrounding air. The most efficient, cost effective, environmentally friendly and sustainable method of generating safe drinking water. Anytime, anywhere.

H2OGEN Intelligent Water Generation

Atmospheric Water Generation (AWG) Technology

Water is extracted from the surrounding atmosphere using an optimized combination of condensation and absorption technologies. The extraction process is dynamically optimized using an intelligent control system. This system senses the ambient conditions and puts the unit into the optimum operating mode, for example, some environments may require additional heating. This allows the machines to generate the maximum water output in the most efficient way.

The process can essentially be considered in three stages:

  • Atmospheric Induction
  • Water extraction and separation
  • UV Purification, filtration and Storage

The control systems sensors monitor the surrounding atmospheric conditions to determine if condensation and/or absorption into desiccant material is required for optimum efficiency.

The Hogen Water Generators range in size to suit all needs from 10 litres per day up to 2,500 litres per day, by placing units in series to generate the desired amount.

Is there enough water in the air to produce drinking water?

In short, the simple answer is yes.

The water cycle, also called the hydrologic cycle, involves the continuous circulation of water in the Earth-atmosphere system. Evaporated water can stay in the air for 10 days and there is around 37.5 million-billion gallons of water in the atmosphere! This allows for AWG technology to be an ideal source of potable water with minimal environmental and ecological impact.


What is Atmospheric Water Generation?

Atmospheric Water Generation (AWG) is a process of collecting water from the air using devices that extract it from the atmosphere.

How does Atmospheric Water Generation work?

Atmospheric Water Generators typically use one of two methods: condensation or absorption. A condensation-based system collects water vapor in the air and condenses it into liquid form. An absorption-based system collects water by passing air through a desiccant material, which absorbs moisture and allows the water to be extracted.
The Hogen AWG range use a patented condensation method as this is the most efficient and environmentally friendly technique.

Is Atmospheric Water Generation a sustainable solution?

Yes, atmospheric water generation is considered to be a sustainable solution because it does not rely on surface water or groundwater, and it does not require any chemicals or energy-intensive processes to produce clean drinking water.

What is the quality of water produced by Atmospheric Water Generation?

All Hogen AWGs naturally produced distilled water, minerals can be added to improve taste is required. Each machine is fitted with UV light bacteria treatment to ensure potential contaminants are eliminated.

What are the benefits of Atmospheric Water Generation?

Atmospheric Water Generation provides access to clean drinking water in areas where water resources are scarce or inaccessible. It also reduces reliance on bottled water and other sources that are harmful to the environment.

Is Atmospheric Water Generation cost effective?

The cost of Atmospheric Water Generation systems varies depending on the type and size of the device, as well as other factors such as local energy prices and location – colder regions may require a heater to warm the ambient air before it is processed. Generally, smaller systems are more affordable and in climates where solar power is available, this can significantly reduce running costs.

Can Atmospheric Water Generators be used in any climate?

Yes, Atmospheric Water Generators can be used in any climate. However, air humidity levels must be above a certain threshold for the systems to work effectively.

What can I use the water produced from Atmospheric Water Generation for?

Water produced from Hogen AWGs is high quality potable water that is specifically for human consumption. Although this water can be used for other needs such as washing, this is not the intended use.
