Press

Problem

Communities throughout the world are experiencing a shortage of safe, reliable water sources, jeopardizing their health, the health of their loved ones and the environment. Many people are either unaware they consume contaminated water or simply lack the resources to acquire clean water. Due to insufficient water supply, the demand for plastic water bottles and containers has also risen and continues to endanger our planet.

Solution

AquaBoy® introduces an alternative solution to the current water market: high quality, cleaner, safer, and less expensive drinking water. With a resource as abundant as air, we can achieve our goal of making clean drinking water accessible, regardless of location. Unlike other water utilities and bottling companies, AquaBoy® implements an organic approach to water production. Our technology uses less processing and none of Earth’s rapidly vanishing groundwater, ensuring zero negative environmental impacts. Also, the built-in micro computer and LED panel makes AquaBoy® incredibly user friendly.

QSAVE

How It Works

Our air-to-water technology machines produce clean water from the atmosphere using a condensing surface and proprietary filtration system that removes dust, airborne particles and bacteria. Similar technology has been in effect for many years, most commonly in air conditioners and dehumidifiers.

The moisture-rich air enters the appliance through a filter and passes across condensing coils. After the water condenses, it is collected into a water treatment system that continuously filters, sanitizes and holds the water for dispensing.

These products are powered by standard household or industrial electric supply from renewable or conventional generation sources. The performance of all products depends on the relative humidity and temperature of the atmosphere.

How AquaBoy® Works

Business Model

AWS currently markets our products through domestic and international distributors and global retailers. Direct sales are also carried out on an inbound inquiry basis. In addition, we have arranged agent agreements, in which agents are compensated for revenues directly associated with introductions and referrals to new distributors or significant customers. AWS selects appropriate distribution partners to ensure they have the proper infrastructure for a positive customer experience.

Market

“Declining freshwater levels and depleting water resources along with rapid infrastructure development are anticipated to boost the demand for freshwater, which, in turn, is expected to augment the demand for atmospheric water generators over the forecast period [2020-2027].”

Target markets for the air-to-water systems are households, businesses, governments (such as military, FEMA, etc.), institutions and commercial/industrial entities. The AquaBoy® equipment has an operating range of 20% to 95% relative humidity and 50 to 90+ degrees Fahrenheit.

Competitive Landscape

AWS is actively competing with several water generation companies, including WaterGen, Island Sky/Skywater and Zero Mass Water.

AquaBoy®’s global IP and branding sets us apart as a leader in the industry.

Also, the AquaBoy® machines are among the only mass market Atmospheric Water Generators in the world that are UL listed, verifying the safety and credibility of our product.

AWS has also achieved approved vendor and/or supplier status with Air2O Bahamas; Global Industrial; Hammacher Schlemmer; The Home Depot; Maghdeem Group; Office Depot; OHM International; Unbeatable Sale; Target and more.

A leader in the industry, AWS has received numerous global awards, notably Best in Show and Best Kitchen Product at the 2017 NAHB IBS Awards and the Global Innovation Award (Kitchen Electrics Category) at the 2016 IHA Innovation Awards.
