The Central Railways continue to expand on the Green Initiative and Water Conservation Goal in association with Maithri. It launched AWG-based 'Meghdoot' in 2019 and installed it in a few railway stations across India. Now 'Meghdoot' will be installed in six railway stations in Mumbai, five each at CSMT and Dadar, four at Thane, and one each at Kurla, Ghatkopar, and Vikhroli.
Meghdoot sucks atmospheric air through an electrostatic filter and cooled coils located in the path of air provide a temperature differential between the air and the coil surface resulting in condensation. The water is then filtered to remove solids, odour and any bacterial content. The water will also get an Ozone treatment.Meghdoot will directly harvest water from the air, with zero carbon emissions and the commuters can refill their bottles for a very nominal price.
