On Monday, 11th November, at the Cecchignola Military Centre, the inauguration of the Training centre for the detection apparatuses of explosive devices of the Excellence Centre C-IED was held in the presence of the Commander of the Italian Army’s Corps of Engineers, General Francesco Bindi, Colombia’s Ambassador S.E. Ramirez Rios Gloria Isabel, and of the General Secretary of the Italo-Latin American International Organization.
In the course of the morning, after a general presentation of the project of the training centre, the General Manager of Ecopneus, Giovanni Corbetta, made a speech illustrating the activities carried out by Ecopneus and the many possible applications of recycled rubber from End-of-Life Tyres. Among them, there are also many useful applications for Defence: from the surfaces for animals’ wellbeing, to modified asphalts; from the walls for shooting ranges, to anti-shock and non-slip surfaces.
Here below are some examples of the collaboration set up by Ecopneus with the Italian Army
