Aquaphant: The Water Technology Company Focused on Eco-Conscious and Tech-Savy Consumers

Published

on

Globally, access to clean water is not guaranteed, and it’s getting harder to source. Consumers are looking for more options beyond tap and landfilling bottled water, and more convenient than whole house water filtration systems. According to a National Geographic article: Freshwater makes up a very small fraction of all water on the planet. While nearly 70 percent of the world is covered by water, only 2.5 percent of it is fresh. The rest is saline and ocean-based. Even then, just 1 percent of our freshwater is easily accessible, with much of it trapped in glaciers and snowfields. In essence, only 0.007 percent of the planet’s water is available to fuel and feed its 6.8 billion people. Aquaphant and its atmospheric water generation technology offer consumers a way to increase that small percentage in an eco-friendly and eco-conscious way. The compact unit works like a dehumidifier by pulling water out of the air and filtering it through a high-quality HEPA filtration process that removes contaminants. The system can produce up to 3 gallons of water out of the air per day at 25% humidity or higher. Innovation Meets Sustainability Atmospheric water generation is not a new concept, and there are many companies on the market that offer the technology; however, compared to other brands, Aquaphant offers one of the smallest, most efficient units with the least power draw. At only 1 kilowatt of energy per gallon, an Aquaphant system uses about the same amount of power as a small dorm room refrigerator. Founder Cody Mullenaux and CEO Steve Wolf are passionate about the environment and innovation, so they created a water system that’s easy to set up in the home or office with almost instant access to clean drinking water. They’ve also developed technology that can duplicate this same system on a smaller scale. “The Aquaphant system is better than traditional water sources because it never touches the ground. It never goes through a 50-year-old municipal lead pipe before it gets to you. Even if you have the most advanced high-tech, reverse osmosis (RO) system in your home, that water still needs to get treated by the municipality through an archaic, 100-year-old steel or lead pipe system before it gets to you. Even the most sophisticated RO systems have to dump a gallon of water for every gallon of drinking water.” - Steve Wolf, CEO With the Aquaphant system, there is zero wasted water. It is 100% efficient, so nothing goes down the drain. The water comes directly from the air, so the chance of microplastics being found is slim. Disrupting the Market In 2021, consumers spent over $40.2 billion on bottled water. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, only 29% of those plastic bottles get recycled. The rest end up in landfills, burned or on the side of the road. Aquaphant’s mission is to address the negative impact of waste on the environment by giving consumers an eco-friendly alternative. They are putting a dent in the bottled water market by offering an innovative product that gives consumers easy access to something they need every day—clean water. When asked about the future of Aquaphant, Wolf says continued innovation is their goal. As a water, software and technology company, they are strategically positioned to make a positive impact in the market. They see a great opportunity to provide consumers with direct access to clean drinking water and partner with them to positively impact the environment. The Future of Aquaphant “Consumers are not stationary. They want their water to move with them. Aquaphant is putting clean water into their hands no matter where their lifestyle takes them.” - Steve Wolf Aquaphant is positioned to be the market leader in eco-conscious water technology solutions. They have multiple products in line to be brought to market, including their HydrationStation, which uses patented bottom-water dispensing technology to be used in conjunction with their patented double-insulated “HALO” water bottle. When the water bottle is placed into the HydrationStation, the built-in software delivers water to the bottle seamlessly. With additional patented applications for car cup holders, nightstands, offices and other places consumers will spend over 50% of their lifetime, Aquaphant is bringing purified water to consumers in ways that have never been done. Aquaphant is a water tech and lifestyle company that uses patented technology coupled with “smart” app features to provide pristine drinking water to consumers. With a talented team of advisors guiding them—Peter Dragone, co-founder of Keiurg, Inc. and Travis Rosbach, founder of HydroFlask—Aquaphant is positioned to disrupt the industry through innovation, attention to detail and an impassioned approach to their customer’s needs. The company currently holds 9 utility patents with 14 more pending. To learn more about Aquaphant, visit their website.
