Circular Bioconstruction in the North East and Yorkshire
Industry presentations and round table discussions to address, develop, and implement actions to move the sector forward
Developing the circular bioconstruction sector in the North East and Yorkshire
The built environment accounts for almost a quarter of the UK’s carbon emissions with embodied carbon from the construction and refurbishment of buildings currently making up 20% of these emissions. The use of sustainably and locally sourced biobased resources such as wool, hemp and wood as a replacement for concrete, gypsum and fossil derived products provides a key opportunity for the industry to reduce its emissions whilst creating new market and employment opportunities.
The event will draw on the findings of three reports; Circular Biobased Construction in the North East and Yorkshire, Yorkshire Hemp Supply Chain Map and the Hemp 30: Industrial Hemp Road Map. All these reports highlight the supply chain needs, assets and potential for the growth of the bioconstruction sector in the North East and Yorkshire region.
