AirQua, a company based in Singapore, is marketing its atmospheric water generator (AWG) products in the Philippines. A November 17, 2012 article in the Philippine Daily Inquirer, although it reads a bit like a company press release, is interesting because it provides insights about the market potential for AWGs in the country. The water-from-air resource in the Philippines is excellent for water-from-air systems.
Water-from-Air Resource charts are now available for Iloilo, Manila, Surigao, and Zamboanga in the Philippines. These cities represent a range of climates in the archipelago which consists of 7,000 islands between 4° N and 21° N latitude.
Iloilo (Panay Islands) and Manila (Luzon Island) represent the tropical monsoon climates of the central and northern islands respectively.
The near-equatorial climate of the southern islands is represented by Surigao and Zamboanga. Surigao is on the eastern side of Mindanao Island while Zamboanga is on the west side.
These four Philippines cities are all excellent sites for water-from-air machines with Water-from-Air Resource Annual Indices ranging from 1.33 to 1.43.
I have been researching and developing drinking-water-from-air technologies since 1984. As a physical geographer, I strive to contribute an accurate, scientific point-of-view to the field.
