INNOVATION FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
We created Ri-Made Eco, the first product in a new line of concrete-based materials using G-MIX, a granular mixture of polymers obtained from the recycling of non-hazardous plastics. Ri-Made Eco is mainly used for the construction of interlocking pavement solutions by replacing a certain percentage of the commonly used aggregates in comparison to the total weight. This project has been developed to comply with the latest regulatory restrictions and offer a highly efficient product above all, with a strong focus on environmental sustainability. Our R&D department has developed a mixture for lightweight and high-performance interlocking pavement solutions.
THE BENEFITS OF RI-MADE ECO
The plastic is 100% non-hazardous recycled material, so its use prevents the increase of waste and the use of new non-renewable raw materials (i.e. natural stones such as river gravel, quartz, and granites).
The weight of an interlocking pavement element made with Ri-Made Eco is much lower than traditional elements made of sand and cementitious mixtures.
Recycled plastics can be used in different percentages to produce interlocking concrete elements without a substantial decrease in the mechanical performance of the pavement.
The thermal conductivity of polymer mixtures enables the interlocking pavement elements made with Ri-Made Eco to absorb a decreased amount of solar energy, thereby keeping the pavement cooler and reducing urban heat island effect.
In recent years, the environmental issues afflicting our planet are increasingly at the center of the community attention. The responsibility for protecting our planet falls on everyone, including companies. At Micheletto we believe it is necessary to change, we need to make something to help improve this negative situation, and take any reasonable action that can be shared with all other sectors. MOB represents a line of products specially designed to promote the aesthetics of vertical indoor and outdoor cladding solutions for buildings, as well as the environmental sustainability without forgetting quality and sophistication. In the last years, the environmental issues afflicting our planet have increasingly been at the center of the community attention. The responsibility for protecting our planet falls on everyone, including companies. At Micheletto we believe that it is time to make a change, that more action is needed to improve this serious situation, and that we should take any reasonable initiative that can be shared with all other sectors.
