BIO-AERATED AUTOCLAVED CONCRETE FOR SUSTAINABLE BUILDING

Industry, innovation and infrastructure - Sustainable cities and communities

For achieving the objectives

Agenda 2030

ENEA makes available its know-how on an innovative technology to develop cellular concrete, a product particularly suitable to be used in developing countries thanks to its good thermal insulation properties. This technology exploits the reaction between the enzymes contained in microorganisms (yeasts) and hydrogen peroxide to generate the aeration process needed to produce cellular concrete.

Benefits and Advantages

  • Highly environmentally-friendly
  • Simpler and better industrial fabrication process
  • Enhanced technical properties of the product
  • Cost saving
