Waste Zone 2019

Circular Economy Hub

Circular Economy Hub

A marketplace for visitors to take a closer look at new and emerging materials, systems, and products that will enable the construction industry to join a Circular Economy. Duncan Baker-Brown will personally invite companies to take part, drawing from suppliers complying with either the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Products Program, the BREEAM Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology, as well as emerging interesting products and systems yet to be certified, but asking interesting questions of the normal take, make and throwaway society.
Spill Out

Spill Out

Spill Out will sit adjacent to the main Waste Talk seminar space and will give visitors the opportunity to learn from a number of pioneering academic and professional institutions, societies, and groups, from across the UK and Europe who are undertaking research into the Circular Economy. Their work, research findings, sample materials and products will be on display giving visitors to this area the opportunity to reflect on what they have seen in the Waste Zone and discuss issues with colleagues and other professionals.
Waste Talk seminar & exhibition

Waste Talk seminar & exhibition

Following the success of the seminars in 2018, the Waste Talk theatre will be over 50% larger! Visitors can expect a hard-hitting programme of talks from leading designers, architects, waste managers, and material inventors from the UK, Europe, USA and Australia. They will discuss ways in which waste materials can be integrated into construction projects as a valuable resource, how existing buildings can be deconstructed instead of demolished, and how new buildings can be designed as material stores for the future.

Surrounding the Waste Talk theatre will be an exhibition focused on how the top 10 waste streams from construction sites to be reused or recycled into useful products.

"

Duncan Baker-BrownIn the last ten years the construction industry has nearly halved the amount of construction and demolition waste it creates, and it is also exceeding EU waste reduction targets. This is great news. In 2017 London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB) identified that by 2036 a Circular Economy could provide London with net benefits of up to £7bn per annum, with up to 12,000 new jobs. I feel that the construction industry is very well placed to take advantage of this. So I have invited as many designers, constructors, and suppliers as I can think of to share their knowledge and hopefully inspire visitors to Futurebuild 2019 take advantage of the financial and employment benefi ts a Circular Economy will provide.
