Last February 12, the 3rd edition of the SDG Impact Awards took place, an initiative aimed at entrepreneurship projects that generate positive value through social, technological, management or environmental innovation. Bluemont.es was the winning project in the “Technology for Impact” category, responding to the challenge: how can we use technologies that enhance and facilitate the achievement of the challenges in the 2030 Agenda?

We are the rain cycle

At Bluemont.es, we build atmospheric water generators: ecological, social, economical and pure. We create drinking water from condensation in the air, then offer the world our innovations, putting them at the service of social and environmental development.

During the earthquakes in Indonesia in 2018, which took the lives of over 2000 people, Álvaro Cuadrado, CEO of Square Ventures, was at the epicenter of the catastrophe in Lombok, where he created a humanitarian aid project to help the stricken families who were victims. He saw first-hand the ravages and desolation of not having access to water. After returning to Europe, we got to work, researching how to condense water vapor from air, filtering it and adding mineral salts, with the aim of generating drinking water where none existed before. Bluemont then places its technology at the service of transforming the world.

Ecological: no dependency on rainfall, never emptying local springs or rivers and with absolutely zero pollution, as well as avoiding any use of plastic bottles.

Social: we have implemented this project to bring water to those who most need it. In 2020, we will bring clean water to people in Kenya, Mexico and Indonesia.

Economical: top-quality water at a very reasonable cost, with the added possibility of using solar energy to power the generators.

Pure: water produced from the vapor in air through condensation and filtration, finally adding much-needed mineral salts, for clean and fresh drinking water.

We develop different models of atmospheric water generators, adapting them to our customers’ needs and studying ad hoc solutions. We trade our products to bring water to populations without resources.
