|Owner||Tanzania Airports Authority|
|Surface||3 700 sqm|
|Date of completion||Q4 2016|
|Siplast products||One layer bitumen waterproofing membrane, covered with concrete tiles installed on Plot Zoom 2 for accessible areas.
Two layer bitumen waterproofing system Paradiene S R4 + Paradiene 40 GS Nox-Activ for non-accessible areas. Nox-Activ membrane is a depolluting technology.
|Description of the project (ex: context, origin, total cost, new builds, renovation …)|
|Proactive work made by our partner ENV Services towards the building contractor.
Nox-Activ depolluting technology chosen for the third terminal of the airport.
1st project in Africa for this technology.
NOx are as one of six greenhouse gases harmful to the environment. NOx particles are a major component of acid rain, which can damage both trees and entire forest ecosystems, and lead to an imbalance of ozone in the atmosphere that can be dangerous for humans.
NOx is also believed to be a major aggravator of respiratory diseases such as asthma.
The use of NOx-Activ membranes can help to reduce the negative impact on the environment. The surface of the Siplast Icopal NOx-Activ membranes is covered with Noxite, a titanium dioxide which acts as a catalyst in the process of changing the NOx particles into harmless nitrates.
The process is activated when the ultraviolet radiation from the sun hits the roof.
Benefits of the NOx-Activ membranes
• enhance visibility in cities, roads thanks to haze reduction
