In Europe we know this permeable or porous concrete saves may lives during the year. Why? Because the road stays dry, even with stormy weather. And we will face an increasing lot of storms the upcoming years.
A lot of countries don’t invest in permeable concrete. But maybe this system will change their minds.
Porous concrete on roads means: less traffic noise and the end of splashing water and aquaplaning

- higher costs for construction
- less skid resistance of the road surface immediately after installation
- reconcilable problems in combating snow and ice
