What makes
Coevolve Northern Star
the best place to live in?

The Future is Circular

A step above sustainable

Your environment at CoEvolve Northern Star is planned, designed and built holistically, based on the principle that no resource should be wasted, and where all waste produced is considered a valuable resource in itself.

At CoEvolve Northern Star, one of the premier sustainable projects in Bangalore, our main focus is on supporting sustainability so that you can reduce your carbon footprint and play your role in promoting the concept of green living.We have worked meticulously on our sustainable apartments in Bangalore North to optimize their potential through different green design initiatives. These steps are helping to reduce the environmental impact our 2 & 3 bhk apartments have and in addition, these initiatives will also provide long term benefits to customers purchasing these sustainable apartments.

Water Management

Protecting the environment for the coming generations begins with more effective water management by recycling, saving rain water and treating water at our CoEvolve Northern Star.

Energy Management

Energy management is the means to controlling and reducing a building's energy consumption, Reduce carbon emissions in order to meet sustainability and contribute to the environment.

Waste Management

Segregation of Waste and possible recycling and treating waste appropriately to convert them into useful Energy happens at our very own CoEvolve Northernstar.

At CoEvolve Northern Star, we conserve 25.2 million litres of freshwater and repurpose 600,000 litres of rainwater annually.

How do we do it?

A water softener plant treats all incoming water from borewells or tankers

Efficient plumbing fixtures saves 11.9 million litres annually

Biomimicry or nature inspired design is a new concept that is being adopted by innovators across the globe. We found a biomimetic organisation in Bangalore and took no time to start working with them to design your wastewater treatment plant.

Biomimicry in action

The ECOSTP is a sewage (wastewater) treatment plant (STP) designed to mimic a cow’s digestive tract. The sewage travels through the tract that contains the same bacteria found inside a cow’s stomach. Once the sewage is digested by the bacteria, the treated water finds its way to the end of the tract.

With the use of plant and gravel filter for tertiary treatment, the water can be reused for flushing in the toilet, carwash, gardening etc. The entire system is built underground and needs no maintenance. With the possible of de-sludging once in two years.

Key Numbers of ECOSTP
100% Sustainable

This Unique technology does not use chemicals or energy to treat the water, but rather mimics the processes of the nature, by using a combination of microorganisms, plants and gravel to clean sewage water and return clean water back to mother earth completing the 'Cradle to Cradle' sustainable lifecycle.

0% Energy Usage

Compared to conventional STPs which use energy hogging motors, exhaust fans, pumps, blowers etc. Our patent pending ECOSTP technology produces energy. In fact this is a paradigm shift in waterwaste treatment - from consuming energy to producing energy. A 200 KLD sewage treatment plant can generate 50KL/day Biogas, energy equivalent of 25 litres of Diesel.

5% Sludge Creation

Due to the nature of the vigorous treatment, conventional STPs generate high quantity of pathogen loaded sludge, which needs to be removed frequently. ECOSTP technology ensures much lesser sludge creation - only 5% as compared to sludge creation in traditional STPs. Sludge needs to be removed only once in 2 years.

93% Lower Maintenance Costs

200 KLD Conventional: Rs. 12 Lacs p.a
200 KLD ECOSTP: Rs. 1 lac p.a

0% CO2 Emissions

Conventional STP uses precious energy, which contributes to CO2 Emissions.

In a world struggling to reduce CO2 emissions, ECOSTP technology ensures virtually zero CO2 emissions throughout the treatment cycle as no energy is used to treat the waste water.

How do we do it?

Treated grey water is passed through a state-of-the-art Tertiary Water Treatment Plant making it pure enough to drink. This saves 4.3 million litres of fresh water annually

With the use of plant and gravel filter for tertiary treatment, the treated black water can be reused for flushing in the toilet, carwash, gardening etc. This saves 4.3 million litres of fresh water annually

Rainwater harvesting maximizes utilization of rainwater through filtering and bulk storage

Abandoned, dry borewells on the property will be converted to Deep Bore recharge wells to replenish the groundwater table with excess rainwater.

  • 4203 water tankers (6000 litres capacity)
  • 280 days of water requirement at CNS (the original freshwater requirement at CNS was 90kL of water daily)
  • 60 days of domestic water requirement of Kolar City (kolar city has a population of 1.83lk as per 2011 census; BIS 1172:1993 stipulates domestic per capita water requirement at 200 liters per day)
  • 10 olympic size swimming pools (2500kl capacity per pool)
  • Rs. 24 lakhs annually (considering cost of a 6000ltr water tanker at Rs. 570/-)
  • 30 days of domestic water requirement of Tumkur City (Tumkur city has a population of 3.06lk as per 2011 census; BIS 1172:1993 stipulates domestic per capita water requirement at 200 liters per day)

The various energy conservation features implemented at CoEvolve Northern Star saves more than 3 lakh kWhs of electricity annually.
It also generates and transfers 30,000 kWhs of clean renewable energy.

How do we do it?

Solar panels and Windmills generate 20 kW of clean green renewable energy. This powers the entire common area lighting.

High performance glass by Saint-Gobain on sun facing windows cut out heat while letting in light. This saves 165000 kWhs annually

All common areas are lit by LED lights. To further optimise power consumption they are controlled by a network of timers and sensors.LED lights in common areas saves 13,000 kWhs annually

Energy efficient gearless elevators with group control to optimize usage. Gearless Elevators save 12,000 kWhs of electricity

Dedicated electric vehicle charging bays powered by onsite clean green renewable energy.

Power backup via diesel generators with automatic load controller to optimise fuel consumption. This saves 5900 liters of diesel annually due to the load balancer
