Anchipurac, from dump to environmental center model

The Anchipurac Environmental Center is unique in Latin America and concentrates research on technological innovations, environmental monitoring, climate change studies and urban waste control.

All environment

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.

 What are you doing in Anchipurac? 

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.

 You can see it in person 

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 .
