However, installing systems for harvesting, storing and reusing greywater
isn't totally straightforward, and it's probably easier not to waste water in the first place.
The eco house, named The Greenhouse, was unveiled last year as a leading light in the design, installation and maintenance of the most commonly used equipment in the sustainable technologies market, including solar panels, heat pump installers, and rainwater harvesting and greywater
Also, new" homes are moving toward reclaiming of greywater
that can be used in other areas such as landscaping.
28) Instead of huge, built infrastructure that supplies drinkable water for every purpose, whether needed or not, and then cleans up the resulting wastewater with expensive technology, communities will need to pursue lower-tech, decentralized, "green" infrastructure--including such simple projects as rainwater harvest, streetside swales, and greywater
The house featured a patent-pending indoor, liquid desiccant waterfall for high-efficiency humidity control; a split-butterfly roof that captures and uses both sunlight and rainwater; constructed wetlands that filter stormwater and greywater
(household water with limited contaminants); a green roof; and a photovoltaic array that harvests enough energy to power the house year-round.
Can and Clearwater Can convey unfiltered delight in their craftsmanship through Rube Goldberg-style mechanics.
The German-Jordanian Program "Management of Water Resources" held a roundtable on greywater
use in Jordan.
The themed entertainment destination, said Ayoubi, will serve as a model for "green energy," incorporating state-of-the-art renewable technologies throughout the facility, and hosting a "future" pavilion where businesses, students and attendees can learn about alternative energy sources ranging from solar and wind energy to greywater
