Prof. Majid Bahrami P.Eng.

Professor, Simon Fraser University

A serial inventor with a great team of Masters students, Dr. Bahrami is back for a second year in a row, this time with a solar powered hybrid atmospheric water generation (HAWGen) system that enables harvesting potable water from the atmosphere virtually everywhere sustainably and with no by-products.  Its patent pending technology creates a consistently humid ambient airflow within the unit, resulting in superior water generation—even in hot and dry climates where conventional systems fail. By using only low-grade thermal energy [e.g., geothermal, solar, waste or exhaust heat], HAWgen has no negative environmental impact on marine life or the environment.
