Twilight Talk February: Unblocking the barriers to the use of bio-based and healthy materials in retrofitting and new building

February 13 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

The Green Register’s early evening talks supported by Ecomerchant: together promoting ethical, healthy sustainable building materials.

There is much talk of decarbonisation, low embodied energy and circular economy, but this often involves greenwashing conventional construction. Alternative low impact, renewable materials offer a solution to lower cost energy efficiency, healthy and fire proof buildings as set out in the new book Natural Building Techniques. Detractors of natural building often distort the reality of the availability of bio-based materials and continue to apologise for petrochemical and hazardous materials. This has to end.
