  Rainmaker Worldwide Inc.
Peterborough Ontario Canada, Canada

Decentralized water production solutions powered by renewable energy. We purify contaminated water sources, with water desalination a key area; we also generate water resources from humidity in the air.

Rainmaker Worldwide Inc. (“RWI”) has developed and sells a unique technology developed in the Netherlands to offer a decentralized solution for providing fresh water to communities and businesses in dire need by extracting moisture from the air as well as processing saline or other contaminated water sources, each providing potable fresh water on a commercial scale at a competitive cost. The products are powered by wind, solar or grid power or some hybrid combination. Its Air to Water (“AW”) machine cools and condenses moisture in the air to produce up to 8,500 liters per day with no discharge and no need to access inflow water. Its Water-to-Water (“WW”) machine processes saline or dirty water using a heat exchanger and a multistage membrane distillation system to produce pure water, with a zero liquid waste option, producing up to 95,000 litres of fresh water per day. Both systems can also include a proprietary wind turbine design that drives a heat pump without need of creating electricity. Both solutions are scalable and cost effective for the markets where they are targeted to have significant impact. There is considerable scope for further R&D enhancements to the technologies to increase water production volumes and efficiencies. RWI’s business model allows for both the sale of its machines to end users who will operate them in “build-to-own” and a “water as a service” model under which RWI will structure ownership and operation of the machines and sell the water produced under contract to credit worthy third parties.
