On the 27th of October 2020, the Final Construction Certificate for the construction of the second pilot (demonstrator) of the LIFE DrainRain system was signed.  This pilot has a photocatalytic porous pavement surface area of 150 m2, being located in the hard shoulder of the RM-714 road in Calasparra (Murcia), in a Mediterranean area (high water stress and periodic heavy floods).

The LIFE DrainRain Project, funded by the European Commission under the “LIFE 2015:Environment and Resource Efficiency” programme, proposes an innovative approach to mitigate the environmental impact of runoff in water bodies by means of the combination of a photocatalytic porous pavement and a water treatment system. The project consortium is led by PROYFE, S.L., and the other beneficiaries are the AUTORIDAD PORTUARIA DE FERROL SAN CIBRAO, COPASA, CETIM and CYE CONTROL Y ESTUDIOS, S.L.
