Zero Carbon Yorkshire BUILDINGS/ AECB Yorkshire group meet-up
January 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join the January networking and information sharing meeting of the Zero Carbon Yorkshire BUILDINGS / AECB Yorkshire group. This meet-up will be focusing on the embodied carbon of building materials and we are delighted to be joined by the following speakers:
- Dr Rafael Espinosa from University of Sheffield “The hidden energy of buildings and construction materials”
Rafael Espinosa is a Postdoctoral Research Associate working with Professor Lenny Koh in the Management School at the University of Sheffield. His research has been in the sustainable practices within the supply chain of industrial and manufacturing processes in order to address their environmental impact through life cycle approaches and rating systems. His objective lies in making Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) data easier to understand for decision making as an initial factor to improve those processes.
- David Garlovsky, Inno-Therm “Environmental impact associated with the supply chains of insulation materials with focus on specifying a low carbon insulation.”
- Matthew Tulley, “The Generation Carbon Game: Interactive Quiz tests your knowledge of homes and transport for you, your grandparents and before”.
Thanks once again to Leeds Sustainability Institute and Leeds Beckett School of Built Environment & Engineering for hosting the ZCY BUILDINGS meetings.
