    A sustainable technology

    Biostrasse is an alternative solution to the use of carbon fossils, to combat climatic change, conserve the microclimate and as an antidote for the formation of heat islands. "environmental sustainability is the basis of economic sustainability: economic sustainability cannot be achieved without environmental sustainability." (khan, 1995)

Biostrasse and the enviornment

The impermeabilisation of the ground due to the realisation of paved areas with products derived from carbon fossils does not permit sustainable management of rainwater, in addition to being one of the causes of hydro geological instability, thereby negatively influencing micro-climatic conditions. since paving realised with biostrasse is permeable, it favours the maintenance of the microclimate and does not compromise the life of the ground, which can continue to perform its function of capturing co2.

Biostrasse is currently the only technology that is certified as having "zero environmental impact". thanks to the total absence of plastic materials and carbon fossil derivatives, works realised with biostrasse release no harmful substances for man or the environment. while traditional road paving is spread at temperatures of 110-150° c, with a high consumption of energy, biostrasse is spread cold.
