POROCOM: The noise pollution killer.

POROCOM: The noise pollution killer.

Noise Pollution is a common situation encountered around large cities and tight spaces. Solutions for its reduction have turned architectural projects into fortresses of high walls in order to deviate the cone of sound and reduce resonance. But what about the materials required for the implementation of this inevitable ginormous wall?
It’s called Porocom®. An environmentally friendly material composed of granular binder a residue from the powder coating industry, using materials such as gravel, clay and glass shards. It is casted in a mould just as concrete, but not exactly with the same carbon emission.
