The Colas Group has won the Innovation Award at the Exhibition for French Mayors and Local Authorities 2008 in the Building/Public Works/Roadways category for its noise-reducing surfacing Nanosoft.  The performance levels of this cutting-edge asphalt mix, which offers a 9 dB(A) reduction in noise compared to conventional mixes, bear witness to the Colas Group’s commitment to fighting traffic noise.  

The awards ceremony will be held at 11:00 am on Tuesday November 25, opening day at the Exhibition for French Mayors and Local Authorities 2008, in the ‘Village Territorial’, Hall 2.1 at the Parc des Expositions de la Porte de Versailles in Paris, France.

During the Exhibition, which will take place from November 25 to 27, the Colas Group will present its most innovative products, processes and road concepts in the fields of environmental protection (energy-efficient mixes such as 3E, Ecoflex, Ecolastic, etc. and plant-based mixes such as Vegecol mix, Naturalith, etc.), along with techniques designed to make for better living and more visually-appealing surroundings (Castelith, Scintigreen, etc.).  

Somaro, a subsidiary of the Colas Group specialized in road equipment, will also make headlines when it announces its new name at its booth (Hall 3 - booth F50), on Wednesday November 26 at 12:00 pm, during a press briefing with Christophe Mitridati, president of Somaro.
