BCIL T Zed, located in Old Airport Road, Bangalore is yet another project of Biodiversity Conservation India Limited.
ZED stands for Zero Emission Development. Every home is designed with over 48 different technologies to make it intelligent and respond to people needs. Here is a campus which has no water supply connection from the outside. We grow our own water with a unique network of shallow, open wells that supply all water needs of the campus, without the need for deep borewells that deplete groundwater resources. There is no sewerage connection for this campus. All waste water is treated and reused for gardens in a way that such water eventually percolates into the open wells and so completes the loop of use, treatment and reuse. We consume only 60 per cent of energy demand of a 100 houses anywhere else. Residents pay 30 per cent less on power and 20 per cent less on monthly maintenance. This is India’s first centrally air-conditioned (with no CFC and HCFC) residential campus. This is the first residential campus in India which is acquiring certification for carbon credits and sequestration for not only the campus but also for its residents. Every resident stands to gain about Rs. 12,000/- on an annual basis, thanks to carbon credit savings in T-Zed.
