Leadax waterproofs several roofs at Floriade with its circular and sustainable roofing materials

14/04/2022

The International Horticultural Exhibition Floriade takes place once every ten years. From April 14 to October 9, 2022, Almere will be the host for this exhibition. The theme is Growing Green Cities. Global innovators show how cities can be made more sustainable. Leadax has waterproofed several roofs at the Floriade Expo with its sustainable and circular roof materials.

Visitors can enjoy the 60-acre park. Here they can discover green solutions that make our cities more fun, beautiful and sustainable. The innovations focus on nature, food, health and energy. The Growing Green Cities theme is now more important than ever, as 68% of the world's population will live in cities by 2050. With so many people in a city, nature-inclusive design and the use of sustainable building materials are very important for human health and the environment.

Circular and sustainable products
Leadax has waterproofed four roofs at the Floriade Expo, for which the lead substitute Leadax Original and the roofing material Leadax Roov were used. The raw material for these products is recycled plastic (r-PVB). This plastic foil is used in safety glass. By using recycled plastic waste as a raw material, it is not incinerated or dumped. This is better for the environment. Leadax products are also 'designed to dismantle'. This means that they can easily be disassembled and recycled at the end of their lifetime, after which the raw material is used for new Leadax products again. In other words, Leadax closes the circle.

Sustainable Development Goals
Leadax contributes to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals focus on the global issues of poverty, climate change, inequality, peace, environmental degradation and justice. Goal 11 of the SDGs focuses on sustainable cities and communities. Together with the other innovators at the Floriade, Leadax is making a significant difference to the world in this regard.

The Floriade Expo will take place from April 14 to October 9, 2022 and expects two million visitors.
