In most developments, waste water from washbasins, showers, kitchen sinks and toilets has traditionally all been mixed in a single soil pipe. But in the same way as we already sort household waste into separate fractions, the waste water in green buildings all over the world is now being separated into one pipe for black water from toilets, and another for grey water.
Separating these two waste water fractions at the source means precious resources are suddenly more accessible. Reclaiming grey water for reuse becomes much easier this way, while the highly concentrated black water from our vacuum toilets leaves less sewage to be treated - or even used for biogas energy production.
