4x more pipe construction under the earth than street construction above
Everybody is talking about renewable energy, sustainable mobility, CO2-neutral buildings. Rightly so!
But what you can’t see may be way more important than what meets the eye. Let us explain…
In Austria, for example, 4.3 billion euros are invested in the renovation of water pipes every year. That corresponds to 1% of the gross domestic product. In comparison, investments in road construction come to just over one billion euros.
That means that if you rely on the right solutions and materials underground, the lever for the environment is incredibly large: modern materials can significantly reduce harmful emissions and leaking pipes can be a thing of the past.
