Can Buch takes care of the planet so that it will take care of us.
We are part of it and therefore we love it. From the very beginning we decided to create a hotel with absolute sustainable and ecological values.
Can Buch EcoTurisme is a 100% self-sufficient cottage with renewable energy that we obtain from here.

Being in the middle of the forest, we don’t get any electricity, water or sewage.
Therefore, we have to do everything with the natural resources of the place.

1- Electricity

The electricity we have in Can Buch is produced by 36 solar panels that generate electricity through sunlight. This electricity is then stored in batteries so that it can be used when there is no sun.

2- Running Water

The water in Can Buch is obtained by collecting rainwater through the tiles of the houses that lead it through channels and through a filter of sand and gravel to separate the sediments, it reaches an underground storage.

In this deposit we store it and, when the sun is up, we make it rise to other deposits on top of the mountain with a low-consumption pump.
This is where it remains, so that we can use it whenever we want without needing a high voltage pump. Thanks to the difference of altitude, it reaches us with good pressure.

3- Hot water and heating

The hot water and heating of Can Buch are obtained thanks to the wood that we collect manually from our forest.
Through a forest management plan, we cut young trees and old branches in the forest improving the quality, preventing possible fires, diversifying ecosystems and encouraging large trees to grow stronger. As a result, we obtain sustainable, km 0 wood that we transform into heat by burning it.

This wood is dried from year to year and then burned in a biomass boiler that heats the water and stores it in a container for when we want to use it.

4- Waste water (sewage)

Can Buch’s black and gray water is piped through drainage canals and treated in a plant and gravel purifier where it is filtered by separating the solid matter from the liquid, both of which are purified, ultimately obtaining water that can be used to irrigate fields and fruit trees.
