Starts the construction of poroelastic test track on a street in Belgium
The poroelastic surfaces are characterized by high quantities of rubber crumb (around 20%) and a significant reduction in noise emissions, even up to 12 dB (A). The experimentation within the Life Nereide project aims to refine the mix design of this type of asphalt.
Experimentation of PERS flooring in Belgium started.
With this type of surface, it will be possible to reuse greater percentages of rubber from ELTs.
Nereide is the “LIFE’s project of the month” for the Italian Ministry of the Environment
The Nereide project was defined by the Italian Ministry of the Environment-MATTM as the “LIFE project of the month” in July 2018.
