ENVIRONMENTAL VALUE… ADDED VALUE!
The polymeric granulate substance is derived 100% from the recycling of post-consumer plastic materials through a highly energy efficient and environmentally friendly cycle of transformation, and its use prevents the needless landfilling of non-hazardous materials and extraction of new, non-renewable raw materials.
It also allows investors and architects to:
– score highly on protocols for environmental sustainability in buildings (ITACA, LEED, etc.), thanks to criteria which reward the use of recycled and recyclable materials, as well as the thermal and acoustic insulation of buildings;
– achieve volume-based bonuses and reductions in permit fees and contributions on the basis of applicable local regulations (regional, provincial, etc.);
– gain advantages in tendering procedures and give the building a high added commercial value.
Ideal for green public procurement due to its ability to satisfy the MINIMUM ENVIRONMENTAL CRITERIA (MEC) which are mandatory under the new Public Procurement Code for new constructions, restructuring and maintenance of public buildings.
