Recuperation of 25 million litres of rainwater per year
As mentioned above, we are trying to make Uplace a zero-emission project and no effort will be spared to achieve this objective.
A 2,500 cubic feet pool (equal to the contents of 12 swimming pools) will harvest the rainwater, which will be used for the toilets and to irrigate the vegetation. The harvested water will cover 50% of the annual water requirements, i.e. 25 million litres of water per year.
Our economies equal six times the amount of water consumed by the municipality of Machelen, or the annual water consumption of 75,600 households.
