Misturas organizes a technical conference on the sustainability of civil works in order to celebrate its 25th anniversary
It is Mistura’s anniversary. The building company turns 25 and, in order to celebrate it, it organizes the technical conference entitled Sustainability in civil works construction: new perspectives, to be held on 18th June in Allariz (Ourense).
The conference, supported by the City Council of Allariz and the company Extraco, will bring together around one hundred people, including technicians from different administrations, companies and universities.
The program includes presentations of several R&D&i projects, such as “Sitegi”, an initiative of a business consortium made up by Extraco, Misturas and the University of Vigo that optimizes the application of technology integrated systems for the management of road infrastructure with the aim of reducing maintenance costs. The “Biovalvo” project will also be presented, focused on the valuation of mussel shells in construction; an idea developed by Extraco together with institutions like CITEEC (Civil Engineering and Building Technological Innovation Center) and the University of A Coruña.
Two more conferences will be held concerning road techniques adapted to climate change and the use of cold bituminous mixes made with waste from construction and demolition.
The conference also includes a technical visit to the chipboard cold and hot manufacturing plants that the companies Misturas and Extraco have at the industrial area of Chorente, also in Allariz. The people attending will have the chance to check by themselves the results of the aforementioned “Biovalvo” and “Sitegi” projects.
