Aquabox takes 75 times fewer truckloads than gravel

Both Aquabox and gravel are used for rainwater management. Unlike gravel, however, Aquabox is significantly easier to transport, which makes it considerably more profitable and sustainable.

Gravel is one of the most commonly used draining materials because it is widely available and simple to handle. It is also heavy and bulky, demanding significant amounts of transport, which only adds to the building costs and the 6 % of total CO2 emissions that come from heavy-duty vehicles.

Aquabox, on the other hand, has none of the issues of its counterpart. It is made of recycled plastic modules that are lightweight (max 9 kg) and designed to achieve maximum packing density. In comparison:

Only 1 truckload of Aquabox is needed to build a 450 m3 stormwater management basin, as opposed to 75 truckloads of gravel. Thanks to its material and innovative design, Aquabox offers significant logistical advantages, considerably increasing the profitability and sustainability of construction projects.
