Resource Efficiency in the Building Industry

The Bremen-based climate protection agency energiekonsens, together with the DBU – Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (German Federal Foundation for the Environment), is organizing the online symposium “Climate-neutral and resource-conserving construction”. On Thursday, March 18, 2021, Bernd Köhler will talk about our resource-efficient project UMAR at 2:15 pm.

The Urban Mining & Recycling (UMAR) experimental unit is part of a NEST research building on the campus of the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research (Empa) in Dübendorf, Switzerland. The design by Werner Sobek with Dirk E. Hebel and Felix Heisel shows how responsible use of our natural resources can be combined with appealing architecture. Here is more Information.
