Abstract:
    VizGen aims at providing contamination free water for drinking and domestic purposes. Using simple principles of science, VizGen aims at producing water straight out of the thin air.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    At present almost 84 million people around the world live without access to safe water. Pakistan is ranked third among countries facing water shortage. National level water crisis and citizen’s access to safe drinking water specifically are the main needs of the society we are aiming to address.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Owing to the robust nature of our plant, we recommend its deployment in hard areas like those along the Western and Eastern borders. Furthermore, these units can also be installed in houses, offices, hospitals as well as arid areas to fulfill the daily water consumption needs.
How will the solution works
    Extending the simple principles of compression and condensation, we have designed a unit which will extract water from the environment which will then be rendered suitable for human consumption. Employing sensors which measure humidity, temperature, water level and integrating them with micro-controller and software interface, we are ensuring the production of an easy to operate and fully automated water generator.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our main competitor is WaterGen, A USA based water from air generator. We at VizGen are more focused at providing a cost effective solution of the problem. Our innovation is designed to conserves available energy resources aiming to provide fresh drinking water to the users at a low cost.
