Eco Cistem has been installed in BRE’s Innovation Park that champions the world’s leading sustainable technologies.

The groundbreaking cistern impressed BRE with its ability to virtually eliminate the need to use mains water when flushing the toilet.

It does so by using condensate from air conditioning units that would otherwise be drained to waste.

BRE Innovation Park has full-scale demonstration buildings displaying innovative working designs that combine to address the environmental development challenges facing regions across the world.

Eco Cistem Director, Graham Kelly, said: “Being installed in a BRE Innovation Park underlines how revolutionary a product Eco Cistem is.

“We hope other innovators in BRE’s network and those seeking sustainable inspiration when visiting the park see Eco Cistem’s potential to make a significant impact on reducing the world’s water use.

“Eco Cistem should be used as standard and be the first choice cistern for people wanting to save water in hotels, offices and any building with toilets and air conditioning.

“It allows builders, architects, consultants and specifiers to secure a minimum of two extra BREEAM credits and as many as five when used with other water saving devices.

“Up to six LEED points can also be claimed.”

Eco Cistem can be installed in new buildings or retrofitted taking the same time to fit as conventional cisterns.

BRE Innovation Park was established to inform sustainable development at a global level and stimulate creative solutions within the built environment.

It has parks in the UK and China with others being developed in Brazil and China.
