Description of the subject
Green roofs are systems that fother vegetation growth on top of a flat or slightly–sloped roof. Green roofs are also known as vegetative or eco–roofs. They fall into three main categories: extensive, intensive, and semi–intensive. Extensive green roofs have shallow growing mediums (less than six inches) and are often not accessible. Green roofs offer numerous benefits to densely populated urban areas, such as cooling, air filtering, and improved aesthetics. However, plants in these systems are high water consumers making such systems particularly unsuitable for water-scarce arid environments most in need of passive cooling and urban greening. Integrated grey wastewater treatment in these structures provides a possible solution, providing plants with water and other required nutrients and organics. Greywater, stormwater, and blackwater are three types of sewage. In general, grey water is the wastewater generated from hand basins, bathtubs, showers, kitchen sinks, and laundry machines in households, office buildings, schools, hospitals, etc., without input from toilets. Grey wastewater also consists of wastewater disposed of in laboratories using water in blood tests and rinsing using X-ray films.
The approach adopted in the framework of this thesis is based on three complementary parts:
Keywords: Green roofs; Environment; Water management; Water reuse; Green building technologies.
