Maitri Aquatech the Indian fast growing SDG Pioneer 

The Hyderabad based water resources company Maithri Aquatech  has done some pioneering work in the area of waster availability in the  arid regions and has successfully exported its patented water harvesting technology to 27 countries besides supporting a vast number of Indian  states. Its patented technology condenses water vapour from air that is then filtered and remineralized for drinking and other uses. 

The MEGHDOOT atmospheric water generator  uses refrigeration techniques and minimal energy to condense humidity from air. It sucks air through an electrostatic filter, and cooled coils provide a temperature differential that creates condensation. With MEGHDOOT, which in Sanskrit means Messenger of the Sky, the company says it has generated more than 100 million liters of fresh water from air.  Ramakrishna  Mukkavailli, the Founder and Managing Director of the company is one of  UN Global Compact SDG pioneers.  #sdgpioneers
