Futurebuild 2019 Website
Today is your last chance to visit the Waste Zone at this year’s Futurebuild. The third and final day of the Waste Zone will bring another set of interesting presentations and debates. More than 20 speakers will discuss following subjects: Circular Cities as potential growth and employment generators, What processes and symptoms support Circular Economies? Social Benefits to Circular Economy and Circular Innovations in London. Each of the talks will be followed by a Q&A session.
The full discussions programme can be found here
Responsible Futures’ Waste Zone will help you to navigate away from the current take, make and throw-away society towards an intelligent, closed-loop system where waste is seen as a valuable resource.
This year’s Waste Zone has an new exciting new format. The introduction of a Circular Economy Hub will act as a marketplace for visitors and innovators to discuss their products. Visitors can experience the re-use possibilities of the top ten construction waste streams in an eye-opening exhibition in the new foyer area which surrounds the seminar area. These spill-out zones will showcase circular economy research, innovations and products from experts in the UK and Europe.
The Waste Zone seminar programme – Waste Talk – will see more than 50 industry-leading speakers over the next 3 days. The debates aim at addressing the challenges and opportunities a circular economy presents. The sessions will explore ways in which waste materials can be integrated into construction projects, how existing buildings can be deconstructed instead of demolished, and how new buildings can be designed as material stores for the future.
