Research in reuse: what material?

Monday 14 November 2022, 18h30

Round table in the framework of the exhibition Matière Ultime.

How and where should we channel our research to help reduce the disastrous amount of polluted waste arising from construction? This discussion aims to explore the needs for a new approach to materials: what would be a material that does not produce waste or CO2 emissions?

Three lines of research will be addressed: The database (how to implement an efficient circular economy), the sourcing (which ‘clean’ materials should be produced and used), and the existing stock (buildings are not waste).
