The high thermal resistance of Fortum Gravo products can reduce the amount of materials required in lower stressed structures.
Recycled bottom ash is a sustainable solution to replace the use of natural rocks and to reduce CO2 emissions.
The use of Fortum Gravo products has been piloted in two civil engineering structures in Riihimäki, Finland. The pilot projects tested and monitored the technical functionality of the material in real working conditions. Fortum Gravo 0/2 and 0/16 qualities were tested in the filtration layer and 0/32 in the sub-base layer.
