New skyscraper is equipped with onsite blackwater recycling system
Greywater (the water from showers, sinks and washing machines) is much less expensive to clean and reuse because of the lack of contaminants. Blackwater (the waste from toilets, garbage grinders and dishwashers), on the other hand, takes a lot more effort to make reusable. Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects made the assumption that such recycling and cleaning was integral to the sustainability of its design of one of San Francisco’s latest high-rises. Commercial tenants have already started to move into the Salesforce Tower, and construction of the blackwater recycling system is due to be completed by the end of 2018.
