If we deliver fog catchers around the world, we will achieve a reduction in water stress areas. Introducing a new water source into the game to alleviate the water stress situation around the world. live better and healthy lives. Making fog accessible to everyone and the government using this technology to fight fires, and providing access to water for their communities. In the future, we want to create seed clouds to bring for anywhere in the world. We will also provide water education to lower water usage in the world, where there is fog.

Stage 4: Transition to Scale

We have already received support to install two water radars, one fog catcher, and one fog greenhouse. These installations are part of a wildfire mitigation strategy. We are now expanding operations to fulfill LOI of new projects and markets.

Problem

According to the United Nations (UN), by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population will be faced with drought or water deficiency. There are already 14 countries classified under the extreme drought category. In 2018, wildfires cost the United States alone a total of $400 billion USD along with immeasurable biodiversity loss.

Solution

Permalution is using fog to disrupt the water industry and present a solution to our world’s access to water challenges with its technology, the Water Radar, the REIF and Fog Catchers. The fog catcher is able to provide 150 to 400 liters of water per unit, which is enough to fulfill the water needs of a family of four to six individuals. Permalution´s technology is capable of capturing three times more water than rain in areas that experience heavy fog, without straining or altering the local ecosystems. Permalution is the only one to provide fire-proof technology, making it a solution for remote water access in arid areas. Permalution’s solutions are cheaper than desalination plants, safer than groundwater mining, and more efficient than rain capture.

Target Beneficiaries

We have built a project already with the government of Mexico and we are now starting new projects with private, NGO's and research institutions.

Mission and Vision

Permalution is a Canadian and Mexican women-led cleantech startup founded in 2015. Permalution is leader in fog water capture technology, and services located and incorporated in Sherbrooke, Quebec, with operations in Guadalajara, Mexico and Lima, Peru. If fog water can be accessed globally, then we can count on a new substantial solution for the world´s current water access, drought and climate change challenges. Our vision is to Support and contribute to environmental conservation, and transcending benefits for society. Our mission is to add a new water source to the water game, embracing a whole new water source.

Competitive Advantage

-Permalution is cheaper than desalination plants, safer than groundwater, and more efficient than rain -Permalution is the only one to provide fog-specific meteorological data-gathering technology for project assessments -Permalution is the only one to provide fire-proof fog collecting devices -Competitors' average fog collectors lifespan is two years, while. Our fog collectors have a longer lifespan of ten years. -Only company to offer a five-year warranty -Most robust and aerodynamic design in the market -New concept and membrane of the fog sensor subject to IP and future patents -Innovative design that allows for better fog capture, easy to install and affordable -Fog policymaking and regulation formulation for governments to use fog as a regular source of water -Assessment of fog projects, such as fog water bodies, irrigation systems, and water use education
