Rainforest Project

CSUN is the only educational facility in the world to have an outdoor subtropical rainforest fully sustained from conventional industrial waste byproducts including excess water and CO2. The 9,000+ gallons per/day of waste water from the fuel cell plant is collected in a 12,000 gallon storage tank and used to irrigate the rainforest through a gravity flow system. Bamboo grown in the forest is used in projects around campus
