The manufacturing of KIO manhole covers ensures a remarkable reduction of CO2 emissions compared to cast iron.

This becomes clear when comparing the energy required to reach the temperature to mould cast iron (higher than 1200°C) and the energy required to reach the temperature to mould composite materials (near 70°C).

The lower amount of CO2 released in the atmosphere is strictly connected with the lower weight of each single cover allowing to load on a truck a number of covers three times higher than cast iron covers with subsequent reduction of pollution due to the lower number of transports.
