Smart Engineering to develop cleaning solutions for urban pavements

Smart Engineering to develop cleaning solutions for urban pavements

News

Stain and urine in urban pavements are mainly caused by pet animals. In certain areas of the city of Barcelona this represents an issue given the inflow of persons (in leisure areas) or the specific characteristics of the area (narrow streets, temperature, ventilation, etc.). Smart Engineering and URBASER have signed a contract to study more efficient cleaning solutions to remove stains and urine from urban pavements.

Smart Engineering, in collaboration with Professor MªAngels Calvo (Microbiology Research Group from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), will characterize different types of urban pavements to identify their physical, biological and chemical characteristics.

The idea behind this study is to understand what characteristics make the stains and unwanted odors persist after the current cleaning treatments applied. This will allow improving or developing new cleaning solutions that are more efficient.

Barcelona Building Construmat (BBConstrumat) is the international benchmark event of the construction sector for  innovation, knowledge and business. This 20th edition presented the most advanced technologies, materials and projects in the sector.

Smart Engineering joined the group of startups selected to participate in the space 4YFN Building Innovation Village to present its business lines, establishing contacts with other companies of the sector such as Cementos Molins, BASF, MAPEI and Sorigué among others. Also, in the 4YFN Connecting Startups space, Smart Engineering has generated alliances with other startups for new technological developments.

In addition, Smart Engineering participated in the exhibition at Startups Elevator Pitches 4YFN presenting our activity, philosophy and experience in the field of Smart materials, advanced structural analysis and methods for strategic decision-making in infrastructures and urban engineering (investment prioritization or strategic and feasibility analyzes, etc.).

Smart Engineering would like to thank all those who visited our stand!
