Fight droughts and floods with Geoplast
16 August 2022
Extreme temperatures and precipitation are flip sides of the same coin. Each degree of warming raises the atmosphere’s capacity for absorbing water vapor by 7 %, resulting in more intense rainfall.
Our innovations were developed with the climate crisis in mind, which makes them capable of addressing the issues of droughts, floods, or both at the same time. Below are the solutions that are readily available for your next project.
Slab and foundation products
The construction industry causes over 20 % of total global emissions, half of which goes to building materials production. Our foundation and slab products lower the amount of concrete by 20 % to 30 %, bringing significant reductions to the carbon footprint.
As cities grow, they become increasingly sealed with asphalt, sending off more and more heat into the air. Using green roofs, walls, and paving instead, lowers outside temperatures and energy consumption in summer months, reducing urban heat island.
Extreme rainstorms have made stormwater management a must in urban environments. Our water products are designed as panels, boxes, or tunnel-shaped modules that can easily adjust to any available space in dense city areas.
Intense rainfall can also be mitigated by creating permeable city surfaces. Along with reducing urban heat island, our green products retain and gradually release excess rainfall, decreasing the risk of sewer congestion and flooding.
