In HYDRO6 water loops are integrated within a remote eco-tourist facility. Rainwater and vapour water recovery systems are demonstrated within the facilities of the eco-tourist resort “Tinos Ecolodge”.
This includes the production of drinking water from vapour water using a fog catcher like system. Wastewater is treated by reedbeds and is recycled locally in agriculture.
Reclaimed water is currently being used to irrigate 0.15 ha of local crops. The facility is remotely located off the grid and thus all activities will be powered using renewable energy.
Level of operation: Private Business
Types of water treatment: Rainwater, Grey Water, Vapour water
By products: Reclaimed water for irrigation, fruits, vegetables, herbs (high value crops), fertilisers, solar energy
