Thanks to its own technology, GENAQ has been able to solve problems related to drinking water through a process that replicates rainwater. GENAQ atmospheric water generators take in air from outside, filter it and extract its humidity. Once the water is condensed, it follows a specialized treatment to obtain the highest quality of water at the lowest energy cost. All this procedure is carried out through an energy source that can come from the electrical network, generator set, solar or wind energy. In the last two cases, generators are completely autonomous and sustainable, and what is more, they can be placed in locations without access to power supply and with no operating cost. Likewise, another essential factor is the high quality of water achieved through a six-stage process of air and water filtration, preservation through ultraviolet technology and mineralization.

Water is essential for socio-economic development, energy, food production, ecosystems, and the survival of human beings. Therefore, universal water access is a matter of rights. Water scarcity affects more than 40% of the world’s population and this percentage is expected to increase. 3 out of 10 people lack access to safe drinking water services and 6 out of 10 lack access to safely managed sanitation facilities. Water is a vital need, but in addition, it plays a fundamental role in the development of societies, as well as in the eradication of poverty and inequality. In the 80% of households that cannot access to water, the responsibility for collecting and bringing it home falls on women and girls.

The shortage of drinking water causes major migration crises and serious health problems, that has a higher negative impact on the most disadvantaged groups in developing countries, such as: elderly, sick people, women and girls. In the last two cases, collecting water involves traveling long distances carrying very heavy weights across unsafe roads, which poses a significant risk of suffering some type of violence. Also, this activity separates them from tasks like going to school or having a job. Women and girls spend up to 40 billion hours a year collecting water.
