“We have had the privilege of following Airwatergreen in their business development journey. The idea from the beginning regarding how to produce water from air has been realized in the form of the Airwatergreen business concept with a new dehumidification technology. Today, the company has a range of products with a documented high energy efficiency and we are looking forward to an exciting journey for them. The idea of ​​producing drinking water from the atmosphere has been realized in the sister company Drupps. A focused founding team with a strong ability to take on new solutions and the challenges that a new company is typically facing has taken them to the leading edge of their industry. After a well-executed business development program at UIC and continued positive development, Airwatergreen was awarded to be a UIC Alumni by UIC’s Board of Directors in 2013. We look forward to following them on their exciting journey. As UIC alumni company, Airwatergreen has shared its experiences with other UIC companies that are in their first stage of development journey, and this is very valuable in many ways, says Per Bengtsson, CEO of UIC.”
