Who needs rain? Mazama coffee shop showcases technology to turn air into water Reply

The water that comes out of the tap is ready to drink and absolutely delicious! It's better than anything I've tasted out of any tap or bottle. IncredibleAquavolve entrepreneur hopes to create hyperlocal water manufacturing for the world

You already know Mazama Coffee Company makes great coffee locally. But did you know they are making fresh water out of air this month in Dripping Springs?

Thanks to the Nerios.S3 air-to-water Eole machine from Aquavolve, installed in Mazama’s cozy outdoor courtyard throughout December, customers can enjoy crystal clear, free drinking water distilled out of thin air and available to taste from the countertop decanter set up inside. And customers who post a boast about the machine on social media are eligible to receive a free cup of Mazama coffee from Aquavolve. Founder and CEO of the Massachusetts-based Aquavolve, Dan Konstanty, says the creator of the “best post” will get a $25 Mazama gift card.

The Nerios unit was developed by French inventor Marc Parent, founder of Eole Water, named after the French god of spring water.  American entrepreneur Dan Konstanty launched Aquavolve to partner with Parent and bring Eole’s technology to the U-S for production.

Konstanty and Parent launched the stateside global water production effort with their “Texas Flood” event at Dripping Springs Ranch Park in November. Konstanty said he wanted to bring Aquavolve’s technology to the “United States of Texas” because the state is “very business friendly and very technologically advanced.”

“We want Texas to be at the forefront of sustainable energy development for clean water production and emergency preparedness solutions around the world,” Konstanty said at the event.

WaterIsaacState representative Jason Isaac spoke at the Texas Flood event to tout Eole technology and support Aquavolve efforts to create local jobs. Isaac, a Republican, recently worked across party lines at the state house to help create renewable state water resources with the passage of Proposition 6, a constitutional amendment to establish the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas.

Wind for water: Cost effective, sustainable

The first Eole unit produced was field tested in a desert near Dubai, and yielded 525 gallons of fresh, potable water per day. Konstanty says Central Texas more than surpasses the minimum requirement of an average 30% relative humidity year-round for  even greater yields of wind-to-water production.WaterNerios

“These units can scale up or down for residential or commercial use – from individual ranches and homes to neighborhood developments and office buildings – and plug into just about any power source, so they are completely self-sustainable,” said Konstanty.

Konstanty puts the cost for a unit at “about the price of a new Ford F-150” and says maintenance costs over 10 years average out to less than $1,000 per year. The price for the water produced is an estimated 9-cents per gallon.

Global solutions, local economy

PR Newswire, NYC: “Aquavolve looking to end water crisis by selling Eole Water technology.”

Aquavolve also has developed a portable, collapsible unit for worldwide emergency response efforts. The portable unit can be solar powered or run by a generator.

Additionally, Aquavolve’s global vision includes a recent association with Benevolent Water Aid (BWA), a 501(c)(3) accepting tax deductible donations for clean water needs around the world. BWA is currently working with the government of Nigeria, to set up a pilot for the creation of clean water there.

Meanwhile, Konstanty says that manufacturing plans and the creation of jobs for Dripping Springs, await the development of supply and demand here for the new venture.

“When we start to see some demand, especially in Texas and throughout the southwest, Dripping Springs will be the manufacturing target,” Konstanty said. “I’m one of the those who wasn’t born in Texas, but I will get there as fast as I can!”
