Q&A

Q1. What is the technology used for treating wastewater? How is rainwater?

Infosys uses Membrane Bioreactor Technology (MBR), one of the few methods that gives very high quality of waste water. The treated waste water is then used for landscape, flushing, air conditioning, cooling tower makeup etc.

Q2. How were the standards for water use derived?

NBC and LEED guidelines are the starting point. Infosys continuously pushes manufacturers to further reduce flow rates in fixtures.
Q3. Do Infosys buildings use insulation?

Yes, both roof and wall insulation are used. These are the primary reason for huge reduction in air conditioning loads. The campus in Banglore has reduced its cooling load upto 1 TR per 1000 square feet!
Q4. Which is the highest performing Infosys building?

It is always changing. However, all of them achieve an EPI of 70-80 KWh per square metres per annum.

Q5. Is any building naturally ventilated?

All foodcourts are naturally ventilated. They are surrounded by greenery to keep them cool.
