Of Pixel Building’s carbon neutral status, Daniel Grollo, Grocon development company’s CEO said, “Any carbon emissions used in the building’s ongoing operation will be offset by renewable energy  from large photovoltaic panels on the roof, as well as wind turbines.” Grocon  is also planning to offset all of the carbon generated in manufacturing and installing construction materials over time.
In addition to the PV panels , wind turbines, and carbon offsetting, the Pixel Building will feature an ozone-free absorption heat pump chiller, a grass roof covering, and a reed-bed system to filter grey water and shade the windows. Workstations within the office will be individually controlled to circulate fresh air through a raised roof, and concrete ceiling slabs will provide radiant cooling, rounding out the structure’s impressive array of green building innovations.
