Symposium on Rain Water 2018
An exchange between expert.
On February 20 and 21, 2018, professionals from the fields of architecture, planning and the public sector asked questions about “Sustainable drainage with BG-FILCOTEN green”. The Symposium on Rain Water, in Vienna and Innsbruck, answered those questions: it was all about the new possibilities of rain water management.
Time for a solution.
Increased sealed surfaces, and run off in the rain water, make it nearly impossible to drain untreated precipitation into the groundwater. Large-scale natural drainage systems are not always an easy answer, and require a lot of space. The industry is constantly in search of cost-efficient, ecologically sensitive solutions.
Since the introduction of the ÖNORM B 2506-3 and the regulation sheet 45, there is now a nationwide regulation for the requirements of technical filters in Austria. FILCOTEN® green is the first substrate channel to meet these requirements, and we presented our solution to the Symposium on Rainwater 2018.
Great answers to urgent questions.
Josef Speer (Director Sales at BG-Graspointner):
The event featured five presentations by four companies. There was great interest in FILCOTEN® green, and engineer Mario J. Tomasek and product manager Christian Ablinger fielded many questions. The topics ranged from technical characteristics to legal question.
An expert audience
Architect, author, and specialist in drainage, Robert Floderer, had a number of questions for our team. For Floderer, the problem so far has been a combination of legal requirements and finding an appropriate solution:
A great success.
Feedback from discussions were extremely positive. We were able to answer a lot of questions and make new contacts. We look forward to working with them in the future. With BG-FILCOTEN green, we’re focusing on the cause, reacting to the issue of sealed surfaces, and enabling on-site cleaning and drainage. We would like to thank everyone that took part in the seminar. Special thanks to our partners for their continued support!
