Eco Friendly – Phytoremediation

Phytoremediation Refers To The Technologies That Use Living Plants To Clean Up Soil, Air And Water Contaminated With Hazardous Contaminants. It Is Defined As “The Use Of Green Plants And The Associated Microorganisms Along With Proper Oil Amendments And Agronomic Techniques To Either Contain, Removes Or Render Toxic Environmental Contaminants Harmless.”

Phytoremediation May Be Applied To Polluted Soil Or Static Water Environment. Examples Where Phytoremediation Has Been Used Successfully Include The Restoration Of Abandoned Metal Mine Workings And Sites Where Polychlorinated Biphenyl Shave Been Dumped During Manufacture And Mitigation Of On-going Coalmine Discharges Reducing The Impact Of Contaminants In Soils, Water Or Air.

Different Phytoremediation Process

  • Phytoextraction
  • Phytostabilisation
  • Phytodegradation
  • Phytostimulation
  • Phytovolatilisation
  • Phytoscreening
  • Phytotransformation
  • Rhizofiltration
  • Phytodesalinisationt
  • Biological Hydraulic Containment

Eco Friendly – Windows & Doors

Did You Know? Your windows and doors could contribute to nature and the carbon footprint? Eco-Friendly Materials for frames are as follows:

Timber Doors: Timber doors are from renewable resources.

Composite Doors: Composite doors are from recycled timber.

UPVC Windows & Doors: UPVC Windows & Doors can reduce timber usage Right selection of glass panes can also help in staying eco friendly.

Low E Glass: Argon gas acts as an insulating material. Insulated glass has a vacuum that helps in controlling the inner temperature, which in turn reduces electricity bills.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Sustainable – Rain Water Harvesting

Traditional Architectural Practices relevant in Current Scenario

History tells us that both floods and droughts were regular occurrences in ancient India. Perhaps this is why every region in the country has its own traditional water harvesting techniques that reflect the geographical peculiarities and cultural uniqueness of the regions.

Rainwater harvesting techniques like Kunds, Lakes, Step wells, Baoli, etc were practised.

The museums, parks or public places can be designed to create a friendly space, connecting them by Greenside to bring urban activities closer to nature with similar forms of architecture.

Courtyard design can be adopted giving a geometry of a kund – A rich Indian space for interaction or for a peaceful mind

Permaculture – A Sustainable Living

Beyond Organic Gardening

Permaculture is a contraction of “Permanent Agriculture” or “Permanent Culture”. a sustainable form of agriculture coined by Bill Mollison. It aims to create systems that are ecologically sound, economically viable and self-sustaining. It is a conscious design to maintain agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the stability, diversity and resilience found in natural ecosystems. The design is a multidisciplinary toolbox that includes natural energies (gravity) to move the water around, reduce water loss (windbreaks), gather and store nutrients, Agroforestry, waste management, renewable energy, etc. This holistic approach is helping permaculture gain traction as a movement across the globe.
