REFINERIES & PROCESSING

Turn excess heat into valuable drinking water

Refineries produce massive amounts of excess heat every hour. This energy could, instead of being wasted, be used to produce valuable clean drinking water for the communities around the sites.

We help refineries and processing sites worldwide to turn something near-zero cost into something very valuable – massive amounts of clean drinking water from the atmosphere above the sites.

It makes both economic and CSR sense

By turning a near-zero-cost into a valuable such as clean drinking water and distributing it locally, refineries and processing sites can become strong forces of sustainability in the community. Water may not be your core business today, but water is at the very core of people’s lives and communities around your sites.

By helping people turn to sustainable water you alleviate eco pressure on other natural water sources such as groundwater, rivers and lakes, and you are saving lives as water scaricty is becoming a real threat to society worldwide.

Unique technology

This not common cooling of ambient air. This is patented LiquiDes technology, the next generation in atmospheric water production. It works efficiently in cold, dry, warm or humid climates and maintains high production efficiency throughout the year.
