Australia: How can a higher use of recycled materials, by-products, etc... reduce the Australian CO2 footprint? Solutions should help improve the building design to decrease the embodied carbon.
Canada: There is a need to utilize environmental value added materials (recycled, recovered, by-products) to reduce the embodied carbon in concrete. How can we improve the identification, sourcing, performance assessment, and sustainability of these materials?
Colombia: How may we implement innovative construction processes to build sustainable, affordable and adequately finished social dwellings in Colombian cities? Solutions should use local materials and increase speed of construction at an affordable price.
France: How may we find bio-based concrete solutions (new concrete compositions, new building components,...) to fit with French regulations (RE2020, and keeping in mind fire, acoustics performance...) in an economical way.
Germany: How to use CPC technology (carbon prestressed concrete) in the most effective way in order to drive the industrialization of the construction process, respect the circular economy (C2C), and reduce carbon footprint?
Mexico: How can we improve the sourcing of new construction materials by facilitating the use of waste* materials at a local scale?
Switzerland: How can new smart building designs drive a better process optimisation and increase CO2 savings beyond existing regulations & material categories?
UK: How do we implement a System to enable the Circular economy to maximize value (carbon and cost) of used construction materials, minimize waste and re-introduce it into our value chain with maximum impact?
USA: How can we better utilize our resources to generate supply chain efficiencies? Solutions should provide operational optimization to reduce wasted CO2 while improving operational costs.
