Majik Water uses novel, locally-adapted technology to harvest clean drinking water from the atmosphere and deliver it to people in our world’s driest places, starting in Kenya. Our technology uses solar thermal energy and sponge-like desiccant materials making it possible to get water in a low cost, energy efficient way. Desiccants are materials that adsorb water molecules from air, and release that water when heated. The desiccant we use is Silica Gel which is safe, non-toxic and abundantly available.
Majik Water was part of the Young Water Solutions Fellowship in 2018.
