The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2018


Arye Kohavi

CEO, Watergen

Israeli entrepreneur Arye Kohavi's vision of turning air into drinking water has become a reality through Watergen – the company he founded and where he now serves as CEO. Watergen's revolutionary technology uses an air filter to capture humidity, which is then cooled down to produce up to 20 gallons of drinking water per day. Already, Watergen's technology has provided clean drinking water to victims of famine and natural disaster across the developing world. Kohavi – a Hebrew University graduate and former IDF commander – says the company' secret lies in providing drought-ridden countries around the world with "an immediate solution" to a centuries-old problem.
