Redwood City, CA, March 15,2016--DewH2O, a Silicon Valley water technology company was formed March 1 as an S corporation under the state of Delaware incorporation laws.
Dew as the company is called has a patented technology that captures pure potable water from the atmosphere. “We literally harvest water from air,” Grant Cooke, a company principal said. “Most of the planet’s fresh water is contained in the atmosphere, and that gives our PureWater machines a huge source from which to draw. With our technology, you simply push a button and pour water from a pitcher. It’s an incredible technological breakthrough.”
Dew’s PureWater products represent the second generation of air-to-water generation, or AWG machines. Cooke’s partners in the company include two engineers—one with a master’s in mechanical engineering from Stanford, the other with a PhD from MIT in chemical engineering. The third partner is a London-based investment banker.
According to Cooke, the PureWater machine is a disruptive technology that uses a unique dual-stage design that is energy efficient and will provide a sustainable source of pure potable water at a competitive price. The technology also allows our machine to work in arid conditions, unlike other AWG machines that fail below 30 percent humidity.
Additionally, the PureWater machines are smart and use machine learning to adapt to customers’ habits and patterns. It is also an IoT (Internet of Things) device that connects to the local weather station and uses time of use electricity pricing to minimize the cost of water production. All these features allow PureWater to be the only smart IoT AWG machine that implements data driven operations and analytics to deliver on-demand water.
The company has agreements with Lohia Global of India to manufacture and distribute machines in India, and has local distributors for the U.S. market. The company also has customer demand in the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, UAE) and Southeast Asia.
The company was recently accepted into Cardinal Ventures, Stanford University’s accelerator program for entrepreneurs and start-ups. For information call 925-989-7117, or see the website at getdew.com.
