The Anchipurac environmental center transformed the largest garbage in San Juan into a unique development and research hub in the region. It is located in a desert area at the foot of Sierra Chica in Rivadavia. It is part of a complex composed of the Environmental Technology Park and the Regional Environmental Technology Industrial Park .
The Anchipurac building is characterized by its bioclimatic design and a sustainable architecture, unique in Argentina . Almost half of the construction is below the ground optimizing temperatures inside. Land will provide the building colder in summer and heat in winter.
Being a sustainable construction makes the most of available resources. Anchipurac is designed to get the greatest benefit from light and solar heat in each season of the year. The complex is supplied by clean and renewable energy such as solar and geothermal energy by water. The construction materials are noble and long lasting, also easy to maintain and with insulating properties to conserve temperatures.
In their laboratories there is a constant study in search of technological innovations in the renewable energy field and the use of waste as raw material. There is an observatory that performs an integral environmental control of the province. Its focus is on natural resources, in a joint work with the private sector to study climate change and urban waste management in energy.
The place has guided tours: inside the complex, with cost and lasting almost two hours and, outside the building, at no cost. A good opportunity to learn a little more about the sustainable development of San Juan .
