How Can Chemistry Make Buildings More Sustainable?

Organised by:

 SCI’s Science & Enterprise Group

Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, London, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
The main theme of the conference will be materials for more sustainable buildings, including use of bio-renewable and recycled materials, and use of low carbon and low- or no-volatiles processes. These topics fit well with opportunities in the construction sector highlighted in the Chemistry Innovation KTN’s Strategy for Innovation published in June 2013. Also, in the present economic climate, the emphasis will be on retrofit. 

The event is intended to broker links between science and industry, specifically between technology providers, the KTNs, and the Built Environment community, with a target audience of technology providers, materials suppliers and industry associations.
