Watergen Unveils Automotive AWG.
Watergen is the first company to integrate an atmospheric water generator in a vehicle. This technology is capable of providing the driver and passengers with clean drinking water on the go. This new tech eliminates the need to bring water bottles with you that's easily accessible from the console. I bet you're wondering how this works. Well lets take a look:
1. Air Intake - Air from outside of vehicle is drawn into the atmospheric generator where it is cleaned and removes any dirt, dust, and pollutants via a 4 phase process.
2. Water Generator - The GENius heat exchange and cooling process brings it to a temp at which condensation occurs creating the water.
3. Purification - Through a multi-stage process the filtering system adds minerals giving the water a fresh and healthy taste.
4. Storage and Water Dispense - When the water reaches its premium state, its stored in a built-in reservoir.
