Construction innovation and sustainability

Here we offer a sample of our commitment to research, development and innovation. Four innovative projects, which, under the prism of eco-design, lay out the future path of our activities.

Project ZeBe

ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND REHABILITATION OF BUILDINGS

OBJECTIVES

  • To obtain a systematic model for the rehabilitation of buildings or urban areas with the maximum energy efficiency criteria .
  • To achieve energy savings of 70-75%, without increasing rehabilitation costs more than 5% with respect to conventional intervention.
  • To improve the value, comfort and habitability of buildings.
  • To reduce CO2 emissions.
  • To consolidate this business model based on eco-innovation.

TECHNOLOGIES

  • Construction of glazed opaque enclosures equipped with heat recovery systems and intelligent control.
  • Creation of on-line simulator.

Project

SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT FOR RAILWAY WORK

OBJECTIVES

  • To improve personnel processes and efficiency, achieving substantial savings.
  • To reduce the risks of working point accesses.
  • To reduce CO2 emissions.

TECHNOLOGIES

  • Adaptation of electric motorbikes for personal mobility (block access and mobility along the entire roadway) and for emergency situations.

Project

PHOTOCATALYSIS IN URBAN ROADWAYS

OBJECTIVES

  • To achieve cleaner and more sustainable cities while reducing the toxic effects of internal combustion vehicles.
  • To reduce NOx and COV concentrations.

TECHNOLOGIES

  • Titanium dioxide surface treatment of roadways applied to asphalt mixtures in order to convert NOx to nitrates.

Project

PHOTOCATALYTIC PAVING STONES FOR SIDEWALKS

OBJECTIVES

  • To achieve cleaner and more sustainable cities while reducing the toxic effects of internal combustion vehicles.
  • To reduce NOx and COV concentrations.

TECHNOLOGIES

  • Manufacture of decontaminant paving stones using sterile adhesive products created during the manufacture of aggregates.
  • The effects of sunlight cause decomposition of contaminant oxides in addition to providing the paving stone surface with a biocidal effect (self-cleaning organic matter).
