the solution

In a changing climate, urban flooding and stormwater runoff pollution have become pervasive environmental issues that cities face today. AquiPor has created a permeable concrete technology that allows stormwater to flow directly through it while filtering out harmful pollutants and particulates found in stormwater runoff.

The Challenges

01.

Rapid urbanization
Urban / suburban development has resulted in nearly 40% of all U.S. land being impervious (in the form of streets, sidewalks, parking lots, etc.).

02.

Water infrastructure
Water infrastructure in the U.S. is old and deteriorating; in most major U.S. cities, urban water infrastructure is over 100 years old!

03.

Rainfall
Precipitation (rainfall) averages are going up nationally, and large, unpredictable weather events are happening more frequently.

These factors have greatly increased the amount of stormwater runoff pollution that is getting into our clean waterways.

AquiPor’s Permeable Concrete Technology

AquiPor’s permeable concrete material has been developed to feature the strength and durability of traditional concrete, but with water-permeability rates that allow large volumes of rainfall to pass through it naturally. AquiPor’s material functions like a hard surface filter, capable of sifting out harmful pollutants and particulates that are problematic in stormwater. With sub-micron porosity AquiPor  material filters stormwater and is resistant to clogging from dirt and debris. This advanced solution to old-school concrete can take the place of impermeable pavements wherever stormwater needs to be managed naturally in cities.

solutions for change

We are asking you to join the AquiPor team on our mission to help bring infrastructure into the 21st century. The challenges presented by urbanization, climate change, and dilapidated infrastructure are only getting worse, and the opportunity to make a difference is equally large.
