Ecopneus Signs Agreement with the Italian Army

The Logistics Commander of the Italian Army, General of the Army Corps Francesco Paolo Figliuolo, and the General Director of Ecopneus, engineer Giovanni Corbetta, recently signed a framework agreement for the realisation of high-performance urbanisation works with a low environmental impact.

Thanks to the collaboration with Ecopneus, some areas of the “Annibaldi” Barracks in Milan, headquarters of the region, will be paved with asphalt modified with powder from ELT.

The construction of the innovative road pavement follows two other important interventions to be completed thanks to Ecopneus: the installation of recycled rubber surfaces for animal welfare in Grosseto, in the stables and kennels of horses and dogs of the Veterinary Military Centre, and the construction, in Rome, of the latest generation flooring from recycled rubber for the new gymnasium of the Army Logistic Command.

The signing of this agreement is a source of pride for Ecopneus - said Corbetta; “Now a new project is kicking off in which we can make our experience and skills available to the Army Logistics Command. We are honoured to be able to collaborate with the highly specialised structures of the Army, which once again confirms the validity of this innovative and sustainable technology.”

The Logistics Commander expressed great satisfaction with the creation of these works, highlighting the importance of the synergy initiated with Ecopneus for the promotion of the culture of recycling. General Figliuolo also underlined how this agreement fits into the path undertaken by the Army towards the modernisation of its infrastructures through initiatives that are efficient, functional, fully compliant with current regulations, inspired by innovative criteria with low environmental impact and reduced maintenance costs.
