University of Brighton Responsible Futures’ Waste Zone

Hubs Title

University of Brighton Responsible Futures’ Waste Zone

In partnership with:

The future of Waste

Returning for its second year, the 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.

Curated by architect and environmental architect, Duncan Baker Brown, the Waste Zone will take an exciting new format, with vibrant stands taking the form of unique beach huts, developed and provided by the School of Architecture & Design at the University of Brighton and with a firm focus on ensuring zero waste.

Waste Zone 2019

Waste Talk seminar

Waste Talk seminar

The Waste Zone seminar programme – Waste Talk – will see over 25 industry-leading speakers address 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.
Circular Economy Hub

Circular Economy Hub

New for 2019 is the Waste Zone’s Circular Economy Hub. Central to the Zone, the Hub will act as a dedicated marketplace for visitors to meet hand-picked brands and innovators. Visitors will be able to take a closer look at new and emerging materials, systems, and products that will enable the construction industry to join an emergent circular economy; demonstrating realistic, cost-effective solutions.
Spill out

Visitors can also see up-close the re-use possibilities of the top ten construction waste streams in an eye-opening exhibition in new foyer areas flanking the seminar area. These spill-out zones will showcase circular economy research, innovations and products from experts in the UK and Europe.

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 the Responsible Futures' Waste Zone at Futurebuild 2019 take advantage of the financial and employment benefits a Circular Economy will provide.
