A game-changing technology to bring
pure water to everyone, everywhere.



People with no access to basic drinking water services.

People face sever water scarcity at least one month a year.

Even countries like Italy, Spain, United States, India, and China will face high water stress.

8 Billion

plastic water bottles and 275k "office" water dispensers are consumed in Italy yearly

Bringing water everywhere can be harmful for our planet

450 years

for water bottles and plastic residue in the oceans to biodegrade

Marine life

is threatened by process residuals
of alternatives like desalination

Our Solution

We patented a game-changing technology
that uses atmosphere as a pure water source.

An innovative Atmospheric Water Generator (AWG)
collecting water from air with low-temperature heat.


Get access to reliable,
constant, and safe water
every day of the year.

Free to live

Forget about being
dependent from
the water grid.


Get water in arid climates,
where other technologies
don’t even work.

Aquaseek is a Politecnico di Torino spin-off and Princeton University startup
that leverages patented technologies developed in the two universities

a thermodynamic cycle and a food-grade biopolymer
to collect pure water and make it available for human use

With our technology, we want to contribute
to achieve several Sustainable Development Goals

A Story of Intuition and entrepreneurial vision

The entrepreneurial team is born within the HNAC (Hybrid Natural Air Conditioning) laboratory, directed by Marco Simonetti, and previously by Gianvi Fracastoro, in the Energy Department of the Politecnico di Torino. There, Vincenzo Gentile conducts his PhD research and has the intuition to apply adsorption technologies to the generation of atmospheric water, opening a new line of research and application.

A growing Network

The research stream was also developed in collaboration with Princeton University’s Chaos Lab, directed by prof. Forrest Meggers, and where Michael Bozlar – Assistant Professor of Materials Science, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at the University of Texas Arlington – was collaborating as a senior researcher.

A potential to be explored

In 2018-2019 Gianluca Serale, post-doc at the Energy Department and researcher at Princeton, joins the team followed by Francesco Neirotti, PhD student of the Energy Department. The filing of patents opens up the issue of identifying possible markets and business models, so in 2019 Ruggero Colombari, MBA and PhD student in Management, gets passionate about the potential of the technology and joins the team.

A New Beginning

After receiving two POC (proof-of-concept) grants by prestigious institutions,
among which Fondazione Compagnia di San PaoloAquaseek is incorporated officially in 2021. 

Right after that, two important investment funds, Eureka! Venture SGR and LIFTT,
decided to invest in Aquaseek to accelerate its development. Stay tuned!
