Abstract: At present, cities in many parts of the world are affected by floods or storm runoff regulation problems due to the fact that there are more and more impervious surfaces that prevent a correct flow and absorption of water into the watershed. These problems not only affect people's quality of life, but also alter natural ecosystems. Permeable concretes have very specific and necessary characteristics to solve surface waterproofing problems such as their permeability, porosity, resistance to compression and their density, which have been developed and improved over the years. In addition, through studies and depending on their application, it is proven that they provide great benefits such as the reduction of the heat island effect, their hydraulic performance, the reduction of traffic noise on the roads and a high slip resistance, which makes them nowadays one of the best and most efficient alternatives for use for urbanizations with a friendly environmental footprint.
