Alain Oliveira created the pervious concrete solution in 2002.
He did not know then that he was at the dawn of a unique creation. It would take several years of testing to file the first patent in 2012 for ‘the dry composition for pervious concrete and its method of use’. This would be followed in 2017 by a second patent registered at the INPI :
- FR2995304 - 2014-03-14 (BOPI 2014-11)
- FR3065212 - 2018-10-19 (BOPI 2018-42)
Alain Oliveira is constantly looking for solutions for DrainColor® concrete.
