Presented annually during CES by the Consumer Technology Association, the Mark of Excellence Awards recognize the technology industry’s top smart-home innovations. The water-from-air appliance, named “GENNY,” was manufactured by the Rishon Letzion-based company Watergen.

“Our company’s mission is to eliminate the need to rely on outside sources for life necessities and to help people become more environmentally friendly,” said Dan Clifford, president of Watergen North America. “We are especially honored to be named ‘Energy Efficiency Product of the Year’ at this year’s CES show because this award directly supports one of the top values Watergen stands for.”

The machine, which resembles a typical water cooler, taps into atmospheric water using patented heat-exchange technology and can produce up to 30 liters of drinkable water every day. It is designed especially for homes and offices.

“GENNY” eliminates the waste caused by drinking bottled water, significantly reducing plastic usage and disposal, and makes water always available on demand.

Also, according to Watergen, “the water produced by ‘GENNY’ provides consumers with higher-quality water than the water that runs through filtration systems attached to municipal water lines. It eliminates concerns of corroded water pipes that could lead to higher-than-normal levels of lead in drinking water. Watergen’s ‘GENNY’ additionally works as a home air-purifier, circulating clean air back into the room as part of the water-generation process.”

“GENNY” was also awarded a CES Best of Innovation Award in 2019.
