Carbon footprint and pollution mitigation for sustainable construction sites
The “Sustainable Construction Site” is a place where civil engineering and construction works are carried out
Construction, maintenance, repair, demolition, conservation, renovation or dismantling of fixed, permanent, or temporary works, in different materials are just some of these works.
A construction site can be defined as sustainable if all aspects are managed to keep the core concept of economic, social, and environmental sustainability at the center of its design, combining a series of good practices that minimize environmental impacts and respect the well-being of the local community. A2A construction sites cover several infrastructure assets (gas and electrical distribution, district heating and cooling, electric vehicle charging point, public lighting, etc.), but today some polluting sources cannot be avoided, due to the difficulty of finding sustainable solutions suitable for application in mobile construction sites.
For these reasons, Solvers are asked to develop a white paper to help A2A identify the most impactful sources of pollution and all the technical solutions or best practices to mitigate the carbon footprint and other causes of environmental pollution (such as PM polluting emissions, noise pollution, raw materials, etc.) at the company's construction sites.
This is an Ideation Challenge with a guaranteed award for at least one submitted solution.
