solar impulse foundation includes Pinovo's clean blasting solution in its "Solutions guide for cities"
Pinovo is proud to have the Solar Impulse Foundation Efficient Solution Label, and we were delighted to have been included in their Solutions Guide for Cities (see page 68!).
In that Guide, we profiled the sustainable surface treatment work that the specialised Rope Access contractors, ProAccess Sweden AB did on the Höga Kusten Bridge near Veda in Sweden, using Pinovo's clean blasting solution, and our patented PiCo Pipe tools.
The contractors were able to remove the old paint and rust on the suspension bridge cables, without scaffolding and sheeting, and with no #Paint#Microplastic #Emissions into the river Ångermanälven, that runs underneath what is the largest bridge in Sweden.
Why does this matter? Because #PaintIsPlastic, and paint is the biggest source of Microplastic Pollution, according to The Pew Charitable Trusts.
A big thanks to Solar Impulse Foundation for your support in putting the problem of Paint Microplastic Pollution, and Pinovo's clean solution, "on the agenda"!
