On 20 September the EU H2020 project BAMB (Buildings as Material Banks) and the One Planet Network joined forces for a one-day event in Brussels about circularity in the built environment. Key areas that will facilitate this systemic shift were in the focus: digitalization, circular building assessment and public procurement.
“AREA OF HAMMAREN” – A PRACTICAL EXAMPLE OF BUILDING AS MATERIAL BANK
Stena Fastigheter, Ikano Bostad and FISSAC are happy to invite you to Högsbo, Göteborg to a workshop that focuses on finding ways how to use buildings as material banks. The goal of the day is to discuss how to increase the recycling and reuse rates of building materials as well as avoid waste to landfill.
Date: September 27, 2018
Time: 9:00 – 15:30, including lunch
Place: Göteborgs Bryggerimuséum, J A Pripps gata 2
From the Agenda:
- Indtroduction of the property in Högsbo; study visit and information about commonly used materials
- Presentation by Material Economics about the report “Ett värdebeständigt svenskt materialsystem”
- Workshop/Group discussions: how can the material from demolition be used as a resource in efficient and sustainable manner
Stena Fastigheter and Ikano Bostad, that own the property in Högsbo, have an ambition to develop the property in a sustainable way. For property owner that means developing and building with a focus on resource efficiency and innovation. That work has already began. At the first stage of the project, the existing industrial building is being demounted in a way that the valuable materials available in the existing building could be reused in the new production.
Registration before 20th of September via email@example.com
To create synergies between the FISSAC H2020 and the TRIS Interreg Europe projects, Geonardo Ltd. and the Herman Ottó Institute Nonprofit Ltd. jointly launched a forum series to improve achieving the efficiency of resource efficiency in the domestic construction industry. The first symposium was held on 13 April 2018 in the frame of the CONSTRUMA International Exhibition and Fair that is the largest annual event for the sector in Hungary. (more…)
To understand the challenges and opportunities for industrial symbiosis you need to understand your value chain and where value for your sector is created. But just knowing your value chain may not be enough. Following the TIS structure of analysing your Technological Innovation System (TIS) you will be able to identify drivers and barriers for change. You will look at your actors and your value chain, but also at different networks, institutions and how a lack of knowledge and underdeveloped technology may be what is preventing change and hindering the development of industrial symbiosis.
In this new FISSAC report you will find an accessible introduction to the field of TIS and you can find a case study, explaining how the TIS methodology can be used in conjunction with a material journey, following a material from production to destruction and reuse.
We hope that this report and case study will help you in conducting your own analysis and developing your field of industrial symbiosis.
