Permeable pavement has been around for a long time, what makes this technology different?
AquiPor’s technology is different from traditional permeable pavements in a few key ways. Old permeable pavement technology relies on large void space to get water through the material and these voids are prone to clogging very easily from dirt and debris. Our material’s pore size is orders of magnitude smaller and capable of filtering the majority of dirt, debris, and particles larger than 10 microns, keeping them on the surface for easy maintenance. AquiPor’s material is also chemically inert (not affected by acids or chemicals in the atmosphere or salts), it is precast (easy to remove and replace if needed for subterranean construction), and it has a significantly lower CO2 footprint than traditional concrete.
