Asphaltica, the trade fair of reference for road paving technologies and solutions, will be held in Verona from May 3 to 7. At Stand C5, Hall 11 R90, our representatives will welcome clients by illustrating the solutions offered by the Pittini Group in this sector. On Friday May 5 at 1:00 p.m., a workshop entitled “Reliable solutions for a sustainable road” will also be staged, during which the recovery and valorisation of manufacturing by-products to create new ones will be discussed in greater detail.
The main example is Granella®, a potential steel mill manufacturing residue transformed into a trademarked product that carries EPD environmental certification. At Asphaltica trade fair, there will also be the presentation of the new product Siderlime®, an artificial aggregate of steel mill origin for use in the production of construction materials and bituminous mixtures for use as an active filler.
Siderlime® is created by applying a purpose-built manufacturing process that involves controlled cooling, and the selection and screening of ladle content at the end of the steel casting phase. It is a clear example of a circular economy without any environmental impact because the calcium oxides it contains are decarbonised and therefore CO2 is not released.
