START OF THE CONSTRUCTION WORKS OF THE 2ND PILOT OF THE LIFE DRAINRAIN IN CALASPARRA

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.
