Netherlands Institute of Ecology built to zero waste principles
The Netherlands Institute of Ecology was designed and built to be the most sustainable building in Holland and incorporate the zero waste principles of Cradle-to-Cradle design.
Materials were selected based on renewability, durability, and recyclability and are natural and simple. The three-story eco laboratory is located in a wetlands area that doubles as a water filtration bioswale for grey water from the building. Black water is treated separately and processed into biogas and fertilizer.
