ModClima is a research and development company in the business of innovation. We focus on finding clean and sustainable solutions to adapt and mitigate the effects of climate change and global warming. In addition, we also work to promote the recovery of the local climate, environment and to restore forests.

All projects developed by ModClima are new, patented and create effective and scalable solutions for the benefit of the planet. Our biggest achievement is the development of a technology to induce localized rain (artificial rain).

With an outstanding group of scientists, researchers, managers and multidisciplinary professionals, ModClima uses experimental research as a creative source of new concepts and solutions.

Founded in 2007, ModClima was born to continue the study of induction of localized rains, which had been carried out by the engineer-inventor Mr. Takeshi Imai and SABESP – the water supply company of Sao Paulo.

The first experimental flights were conducted in 1998 in the region of Atibaia. In 2001 with the support of SABESP, the research started taking shape and many cloud seeding flights took place to develop and test the equipment. In 2005, SABESP and ModClima signed the first annual contract to produce artificial rains on the Cantareira System.

Also in 2005 the technology was awarded the gold medal of sciences at the 7th International Water Symposiun 2005 in Cannes, France.

After 10 years of research and development, the technology already executed 7 contracts with SABESP, 1000 hours of flight, and approximately 600 induced rains.

This process is currently being applied in SABESP's water reservoirs in the Cantareira and Alto Tietê systems.M

Since 2009 our localized rain induction technology (production of localized rains) is also being applied to agriculture crops in order to minimize the impact of droughts in several states of Brazil: Bahia , Goias, Maranhao, Paraná, Pernambuco and Sao Paulo.
