- Abstract in English : The increasing share sealed surfaces within municipal areas leads to a significant reduction of the living quality for its population. The municipality of Bozen (Italy) has launched a study in order to limit and compensate the negative environmental affects of boiling operations within urban areas. Within the frame of this project a special ‘sealing index’ (B.V.F.: Beschränkungsindex der versiegelten Flächen) was developed which has proved to be an efferent tool for urban planning offices. The BVF makes the assessment of sealed areas actual value/rated value) within certain parts of the city much easier and considers green roofs as compensation measures.
