KTVU – A device looks like an ordinary water cooler, but it can make water out of air.
Wayne Ferreira is a former professional tennis player and co-founder of Lafayette-based Ecolo-Blue, which makes AWG’s, which stands for automatic water generators.
“It sucks air in. We have a condenser inside the machine which freezes the humidity and drops it into a holding tank at the bottom of the machine,” said Ferriera.
The humidity thaws, runs through a series of filters and comes out ready for drinking.
A small model makes eight gallons a day and sells for about $1,300.
Ferreira says his technology will not solve California’s drought, but it could certainly help. He also has machines that produce 2,500 gallons of water a day.
“We can aid, we can help. We can make it rain every day,” he said.
The former tennis champion met Thursday with representatives from UNICEF, which is looking for innovative ways to help solve the shortage of clean water in third world countries.
UNICEF says it is impressed by the concept. “We really believe there is no one solution. But solutions from different places, ideas from different places can make a huge difference in the lives of hundreds of millions of children, said UNICEF’s Tanya Accone.
Ferreira, who won a silver medal for doubles in tennis during the 1992 Olympics, says he became interested in the technology after he retired from tennis.
He says he has spoken to the California farm industry about AWG’s as a possible solution to replace water in wells. But he says they tell him it is too expensive right now.
Still, if the drought continues on, he says expensive water may be better than no water.

WorldBeat Center is joining the global World Water Day festivities with a full day celebration in San Diego on Sunday March 22nd, 2015. WorldBeat Center will be collaborating with local environmental organizations to continue to educate the public about water issues including conservation. With California’s continual drought and new water conservation restrictions it is important that San Diegans are aware of the new water restrictions and ways to save water. Activities will include: Afro-Cuban Percussion and Dance and African Dance workshops, local water activist speakers, Tibetan Bell Meditation, outdoor children’s water conservation poster painting, children’s storytelling and a globally synchronized water blessing and meditation. WorldBeat Center will also feature two atmospheric water generators (AWG) that make water from air and are sponsored by Watair and EcoloBlue. At 6pm PST millions will be uniting in “a moment of intention” for the waters of our world and the creatures that inhabit them. Both WorldBeat Center and Centro Cultural de la Raza are celebrating World Water Day as part of their mutual water history as former water towers.
World Water Day:
In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly designated 22 March as the first World Water Day. 22 years later, World Water Day is celebrated around the world shining the spotlight on a different issue every year. For 2015, the theme for World Water Day is ‘Water and Sustainable Development’. To learn more visit www.unwater.org
EcoloBlue’s atmospheric Water generators are state of the art AWGs, with a major emphasis on Water generation, energy reductions, and ease of use. The EcoloBlue range varies from up to 30L/8Gal a day for the home/office market, up to millions of liters/day in customizable Water Stations.
EcoloBlue’s patented model, EcoloBlue 30s, can make sparkling water from the air. Not only will it start off with 99.9% pure water, but then you can transform it to whatever you or your children desire.
How much money do you spend a year on soda? Many of the articles we have read state that the average American household spends approximately $850 on soda annually. And I wonder if that is just Coke, Sprite, Dr Pepper and the like. I wonder if they include sparkling water (plain or flavored), ginger ale, tonic water, and others as well.
On top of that, American’s spend approximately $240 per person on bottled water every year. And that is not even addressing the environmental impact of what is happening (or not happening) with all of those plastic bottles.
If we do the math… taking into account an average household to be 4 people, that is approximately $1810 spent on soda and bottled water per year for the average household. That in itself pays for your EcoloBlue machine, that now fulfills both of those needs for you, and includes your first filled CO2 canister and water bottle. While you may have to periodically purchase replacement CO2, or your preferential flavorings for your soda, these costs are very minimal in the grand scheme of things, and completely in your control based on usage.
If you prefer to stick with a more natural soda, by adding fruit or herbs, we have come up with a few suggestions on a previous blog post that you can peruse.
Think about it…. doesn’t it make sense to make your own water from the air, and reap in these savings all year long? Seems pretty logical to me.
And even better now that we are running a 20% Off promo on these home/office machines through the end of April (Promo: SPRING20). You can cash in on these savings even more.
