WETT-G for greywater treatment in the Arctic
Terragon is pleased to announce that the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS), operating as Polar Knowledge Canada (POLAR) has awarded through its Northern Science and Technology Program an amount of $247,600 to Terragon Environmental Technologies Inc. (Terragon). The project in question, entitled “Achieving benefits through greywater treatment and reuse in Northern buildings and communities”, involves using Terragon’s novel WETT-G to treat greywater generated by a community of researchers housed in one of the two new Triplexes that are part of the CHARS campus. The goal is to demonstrate the potential for a multi-occupant building to achieve water savings, one of the key areas of human and environmental health considered by the LEED system for high-performing, healthy green buildings. The results will be transferable to other multi-occupant buildings in Northern regions, and consideration will be given as to how the technology could be used in home-based and community-based approaches.
