BAMB - Buildings As Material Banks: A Pathway for a Circular Future

Brussels, Belgium
Tuesday 05th February 2019 to Thursday 07th February 2019

 

 

Over the past three years, the EU Horizon 2020 BAMB project (www.bamb2020.eu) has gathered 15 partners from across Europe to work together towards a singular mission: enable a systemic shift in the building sector by creating circular solutions where dynamically and flexibly designed buildings can be incorporated into a circular economy, producing less waste and using less materials. Much has been achieved and on the 5th of February 2019, some 300 innovators, policy makers and key industry players will gather to share the BAMB tools and results during a three-day final event "Buildings as Material Banks - A Pathway for a Circular Future". The BAMB pilot projects and prototyping have demonstrated that our tools and methodologies can prevent upward of 75% of all waste generated and raw materials used over the course of several building transformations. Acting on these findings is crucial since the building sector accounts for 35% of the EU's waste and 30-50% of natural resources consumed. We are eager to drive change by sharing these tools and findings with the building sector.
