Efficient Use of Resources

alternative water sources diagram

In collaboration with Prof George Karani (Cardiff School of Sport and Health Sciences), the aim of this work is to measure the impact of using on-site alternative water sources in a healthcare setting, to alleviate the use of desalinated potable water. This in turn reduces energy consumption, capital cost investment and carbon emissions. So far, the project has developed three interventions: using food waste to generate organic biological waste; enhancing the soil quality; and monitoring the quality and quantity of condensate water. A greenhouse gas metric has been developed investigating the energy:water nexus.
