One of the first Italian groups to develop trenchless technologies, which minimize or even eliminate surface excavation and can be considered environmentally friendly technologies, in the latest years the I.CO.P. group keeps on studying and applying its innovative geotechnical know-how, like the construction of waterproof barriers for the containment of polluted sites, special in situ mixing interventions, able to offer new solutions also to sediments, drilling slurry and excavation waste (see article Management of sediments between innovation and respect for the environment, Eco, Year 3, No. 9, May-June 2010).

To traditional technologies, such as plastic diaphragms, trench-cutter diaphragms, csm, etc., new technologies such as ALLU system©.
