Sri Lanka Start-up Bottles Drinking Water from the Air
October 5, 2017
DEHIWALA, SRI LANKA, Oct. 4, 2017 – Ranil Somaweera, entrepreneur and CEO of the new company, Rainmaker Water Pvt Ltd., today announced that the company will use air to water generation technology from Rainmaker Worldwide Inc. (OTC: RAKR) to capture water from the air and then bottle it.
“Sri Lanka has suffered from water shortages as a result of the over-utilization of tube wells as well as climatic conditions,” said Somaweera. “The effects of climate change have transferred some of our ground water into the atmosphere which has caused many droughts that have limited our access to clean drinking water.”
“We are excited to begin using Rainmaker’s Air-to-Water generators to offer fresh water to the Sri Lankan market. We are deploying our first unit within the next 60 days. With one generator, we can produce 3.6 million 500mL bottles annually. We are planning to deploy 10 units by this time next year to ramp up production to 36 million bottles as new machines come online.”
In reference to Sri Lanka, the U.S. National Library has published that the primary problems concerning water resources in Sri Lanka are the depletion and degradation of the resource caused by various man-made activities. Surface inland waters in urban areas are polluted heavily with domestic and industrial sewage, and in rural areas with agricultural runoff. With regard to ground water in certain areas of the dry zone, there is a high fluoride content and in hard, rocky, alluvial areas, a high concentration of iron. In urban over-crowded cities, there is biological contamination of ground water. Over-utilization, particularly through tube wells, is another major problem affecting ground water resources in Sri Lanka.
Michael O’Connor, President and CEO of Rainmaker Worldwide, said, “Rainmaker’s Air-to-Water technology is an ideal fit for Sri Lanka’s climate and we are excited that Rainmaker Water PVT will be utilizing our technology exclusively. The clean water that a Rainmaker machine will harvest is perfect for bottling and will have a clean, refreshing taste.”
Rainmaker’s purpose is to produce clean water for communities in need so they can thrive and never go thirsty.
