  • Using moss, algae to regulate temperature.
  • Producing biogas from domestic biodegradable waste.
  • Using raw materials from biogas slurry.

  • Rainwater harvesting.

Solution description

  • The self-sustainable building consists of any structure that is designed, renovated, or reused in a manner to promote conservation and proficient use.
  • We often forget that attitudes have two parts, the cognitive and the emotional, and too often research focuses on the cognitive. The real power of attitudes is the emotional dimension.

    Moss/algae can be used on the outside wall of the building which consumes a remarkable amount of carbon dioxide and also helps to regulate the temperature .

    1 sqft cost of moss is 4 dollars.

  • PRODUCING BIOGAS FROM DOMESTIC BIODEGRADABLE WASTE:

    Batch systems, which require the physical removal of slurry every few days and the addition of new feedstock are both labour intensive and disruptive to supply.
  • Solar electricity will be used for staircase and garage lights, sensor, pump.
  • On the rooftop we will collect rainwater using sensors. Rainwater will be kept for emergency use as in Dhaka City people suffer a lot in summer because there is not enough water.
  • We will use fertilizer for trees.
