Located at 40 Mount Street, the Ark was completed in May this year and represents the first high-rise commercial building to achieve 6 Star Green Star V2 Design rating in NSW. Its rating can be attributed to sustainable ...

  • Membrane process treatment for greywater recycling: investigations on direct tubular nanofiltration

    On-site greywater recycling and reuse is one of the main ways to reduce potable water requirement in urban areas. Direct membrane filtration is a promising technology to recycle greywater on-site. This study aimed at selecting a tubular nanofiltration (NF) membrane and its operating conditions in order to treat and reuse greywater in buildings. To do so, a synthetic greywater (SGW) was ...

  • Estimated costs of implementation of membrane processes for on-site greywater recycling

    Greywater reuse inside buildings is a possible way to preserve water resources and face up to water scarcity. This study is focused on a technical-economic analysis of greywater treatment by a direct nanofiltration (NF) process or by a submerged membrane bioreactor (SMBR) for on-site recycling. The aim of this paper is to analyse the cost of recycled water for two different configurations (50 and ...

  • An integrated system dynamics – cellular automata model for distributed water-infrastructure planning

    Modern distributed water-aware technologies (including, for example, greywater recycling and rainwater harvesting) enable water reuse at the scale of household or neighbourhood. Nevertheless, even though these technologies are, in some cases, economically advantageous, they have a significant handicap compared to the centralized urban water management options: it is not easy to estimate a ...

  • Organic matter degradation in a greywater recycling system using a multistage moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR)

    Greywater is an important non-conventional water resource which can be treated and recycled in buildings. A decentralized greywater recycling system for 223 inhabitants started operating in 2006 in Berlin, Germany. High load greywater undergoes advanced treatment in a multistage moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) followed by sand filtration and UV disinfection. The treated water is used safely ...
