The ‘atmospheric water generator’ is called 'Meghdoot'
'Meghdoot' harvests water directly from air through a series of steps
Have you ever heard of water being made from air? Yes, you hear it right. In a first-of-its-kind initiative by Indian Railways, South Central Railway has installed an ‘atmospheric water generator’ kiosk at Secunderabad Railway Station. The ‘atmospheric water generator’ is called 'Meghdoot'. This technology is developed under 'Make in India' by Maithri Aquatech. The kiosk produces around 1,000 litres per day. "Conserve Water, Conserve Life: Railways introduces 'Meghdoot' device to harvest water directly from air, which is then filtered & remineralised for drinking," Piyush Goyal tweeted an informative video with his tweet.
