The start-up was selected out of hundreds of candidates. Water-Gen devices and technology are a new source of clean drinking water, using patented Genius technology. The device is easy to use, needing only an energy source, which tackles many water challenges the world faces, including drought, faulty and damaged water supply systems and dangerous lead pipes that pollute the drinking water.
Watergen’s fast technology uses the “air we breathe” and changes it into “the most premium quality drinking water”. The start-ups developments have influential change for worldwide water security, promoting peace, stability, and environmental sustainability.
Maxim Pasik, the Executive chairman of Watergen said last week that the company had emphasised to the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres who visited Israel recently that “Watergen technology is the game changer for the global drinking water crisis”.
Seven other Israeli start-ups also made the WEF “technology pioneers” list, including Utilis, a firm that uses satellite technology to detect water leaks; Innoviz Technologies, which makes light detection and ranging sensors for self-driving cars; and Aqua Security, a cybersecurity firm that works on increasing the security of software containers and prevent suspicious activity in real time.
