Highway to Silence


In 2011 I was solicited by a world-leader in the polymer industry. We agreed to bring their department of low-carbon noise barriers to the next level.

Main event was a major railway project (2015) when more than 60.000sqm of plastic noise barriers were rolled out on several HST tracks in the South of France.

 An important breakthrough for low-carbon plastics when conventional barriers like concrete or aluminium dictated this field.

Despite years of presentable success, the board decided to change course and use all recycled compound for the production of core products and further reduce the carbon footprint of the company. The noise-program had served its purpose, putting the many advantages of low-carbon plastics in the picture.

Myself, I decided to continue the business whilst offering continuity for dealers, contractors and designers. Noise Block Projects, a consultancy agency in the field of acoustics for both industry and infra, was born.

An emergency scenario was rolled out to secure all business in progress along several projects in the pipeline.

I had to look for an alternative and came across a manufacturer that could serve all needs in the field of low-carbon barriers;  NOISE Srl, manufacturer of noise barriers.

Their know-how and ambition were an eye-opener: extrusion and injection-moulding are on a high level.The finishing quality and appearance of their products appeared to be even more balanced than anything I had seen before in the plastic industry. State of the art products, pure quality, highly performant and sustainable (EPD certified!offering more value for money. 

We exchanged expertise and defined mutual goals based on commitment and a reliable partnership.

The supply of sustainable plastic noise barriers to the West-European market had been restored.


Sincerely yours,
