The Khansaheb-Bionest Division is pleased to announce that, at the recent EGBC 2015 Awards Gala, Khansaheb – Bionest won the Emirates Green Building Council award for “Bionest - Green Product of the Year”.
As stated on the EGCB website “The 2015 Emirates Green Building Council Awards Program honours companies that demonstrate clear implementation of sustainable design, construction and/or operation of buildings and structures. Its ultimate goal is to help establish a regional model for the sustainable built environment that is world class and replicable”.
The esteemed panel of judges was most impressed with Bionest system’s sustainability profile. Green advantages such as odourless and quiet operation, low energy consumption, simple and long lasting components, minimal sludge removal and the absence of hazardous chemicals were greatly appreciated. Noted and valued, as well, was the system’s low ecological footprint with wastewater treated at source, resulting in fewer sewage tanker on the roads and highways, reducing carbon emissions as well as pressure on the sewage networks and municipal treatment facilities. In addition, the high quality of the treated water provides many opportunities for re-use, including the expansion of green spaces, and lowers the consumption of sweetwater.
All in all, it was a remarkable evening and a tremendous achievement for the entire Khansaheb – Bionest Team and “Bionest – Green Product of the Year”.
