From rooftop to parking lot
The process starts at the top of Volkshotel. From the green rooftop, the water travels through our building into a quite ugly container on our parking lot. Every drop is being saved, until it consists 1000 liters of water. When the container is full, the water gets filtered and transported to brewery De Prael. Where the brewers work their magic to create a damn tasty beer.
Green Knowledge Mile
From the Rembrandt tower until the Rembrandt house, the Wibautstraat is also known as the Knowledge Mile. Rainwater project ‘Hemelswater’ is part of the Green Knowledge Mile project. By combining forces The Green Knowledge Mile tries to transform the once ugly and unattractive Wibautstraat into the smartest and greenest street of the country. With smart experiments that will improve air quality, reduce city heat and simply make the Wibautstraat a more inviting area for everyone.
Soon you can order a rainwater beer at the bar, if you’re curious. And at the moment, not only the beer is being brewed. Other rainwater ideas are also simmering. Why stop at beer, when you could bake bread using rainwater, or make a good soup out of it with street greens?
