Identification

Whereas the choice of materials can influence up to 60% of the cost and 85% of the road project carbon footprint, material sourcing for road construction was historically considered at the last stages of a project. The complexity and the deep ground knowledge necessary for sourcing evaluations result in standardized designs based on assumptions and with little consideration for the local material availability. ORIS brings a new approach to the entire ecosystem with a deep local materials knowledge for all geographies. ORIS is a material intelligence platform gathering materials information and knowledge accessible for the construction ecosystem. Using local resources based on circularity enable to reduce the use of natural resources in road construction by up to 80% and the carbon footprint by up to 50%. ORIS enables each player of the road industry to collaborate better: - authorities to plan more sustainable road programs, - engineers to control the carbon emission of their project, - funders to follow their green finance objectives and KPIs - contractors to leverage more circular economy and recycling contents and materials suppliers to participate actively. ORIS services are paving the way to sustainable road construction providing circular, low-carbon, resource - and competitive solutions.
