Less construction waste
Only in Finland about 2,2 million tons of construction waste is generated per year, and 1,2 million tons (57%) of the construction waste is caused by renovation constructions. The focus of construction business is moving to renovation constructions and the amount of construction waste is expected to grow in the future (Source: Good news from Finland).
With our relining method, the sewer renovations can be conducted without generating construction waste, dust or rubbish. There is no need for demolitions, so that no asbestos or concrete waste is generated to the landfill site. The traditional way of changing the old pipes is costing demolition waste 200kg per m2, just to chisel the floor open. More material savings are generated when there is no need for bathroom or kitchen to be refurnished or renovated.
While designing the ElastoTec relining system, one key element was to make the system work without ElastoFlake material going to waste. That’s why it was necessary to give special attention to cleaning of the system.
Cleaning of containers
The ElastoTec relining system has a programmed storage-mode, which recycles the material in the containers while the system is not in use. This way the material will not harden in the containers. Now there is no need to clean the containers between uses and the material in the containers can be used for the next relining project, making less waste and more material savings.
Cleaning of hoses and the system
Our ElastoTec relining system uses new, low toxicity and biodegradable alternative cleaning solution instead of acetone-based solutions, which cause harmful odours. The system and its 5 to 20 m long hoses do not need cleaning between uses, because our ElastoTec system mixes the ElastoFlake material in the spray head instead of the system. This is where we can save reasonable amounts of cleaning solution and relining material doesn’t go to waste.
We are part of Cleantech Finland Network
Our relining method, that requires no removal of old pipes at renovation sites, has been recognised in the Cleantech world. And we are proud to say, that Relining Group is part of the Cleantech Finland network.
