After several years of research and tests, the company pvt develops ecoGranic, a new generation ecological pavement.
ecoGranic combats pollution through the photocatalysis, a natural oxidation process similar to plant photosynthesis.
ecoGranic incorporates a powerful catalyst on its superficial side, which activates in the presence of light, both natural and artificial, and relative humidity, transforming the urban gaseous pollutants into health harmless products, with no impact whatsoever in the environment.
This pavement’s decontaminating power remains unaltered throughout its life cycle, having therefore an unlimited activity.
The tests made by the prestigious laboratory of the Dutch Twente University, according to the ISO rule, and the field studies carried out at different works show ecoGranic’s decontaminating efficiency to up to 56% in the nitrous oxide degradation.
If you what more information about this product, you can ask for the ecoGranic catalogues in the pvt downloads form.
We find ourselves, therefore, before a new concept of urban pavement, a highly ecological pavement, since it incorporates some recycling materials, mainly from the construction and industrial sectors.
The re-use of these raw materials means an important reduction in the consumption of natural resources, while the pavement’s physical properties remain unaltered. Moreover, it contributes to the reduction of gaseous pollutant emissions to the atmosphere resulting from the processing of such materials.
After eighteen months of its launch and more than 100 works made, ecoGranic has been certified by Applus + and the first paving capable of degrading nitrous oxides, with the number of certified PR-1253-057
ecoGranic is a product protected by patent for the pvt company.
