Our Story

Fourteen years ago, Durga whilst still in the Silicon Valley, wanted to build technologies that would create social impact. Water and Energy came to mind. When she was playing a cricket tour in South Africa, Capetown ran out of water and she knew the time had come to work on technologies that would deliver Water from Air to those in Need.

She built a team that was well versed in refrigeration and had worked on AWG technologies and created a new set of designs  that received patents and built the first set of machines to take to the world. She then acquired additional technologies that bio-mimicked, deriving inspiration from the desert beetles and further developed the solution.

As the whole city of Chennai reeled under the floods in 2015, there was a severe safe water shortage which paved the way for the solution to be introduced to the market.

The Concept of Atmospheric Water Generation is not new, however, the Innovative Technology of the Aeronero machines is quite unique. The Technology is unique in the efficiency, capacity, cost, filtration system, minerals cartridges as well as the variation in the climate and geographic areas that it can be in.

In 2019, Aeronero, a for profit social enterprise was incorporated and Durga began to implement pilots across the country to gather data and build efficiencies in the solution so that Aeronero could bring to the world solutions that are affordable and sustainable. Enabling independence has been the aim of every endeavour so far and Aeronero has kept that promise, removing the need for any external source of water.

Founder / CEO

Born in India and living and working in Silicon Valley for twenty plus years in technology inculcated in me the desire and passion to give back. I wanted to make a difference in people's lives. Water is capable of creation and destruction. Humanity has depleted the source of groundwater with carelessness and irresponsibility. I wanted to cause a change. Aeronero is a social enterprise that will continually innovate and work on technologies and solutions that will deliver mankind from water-related issues.
