Homes from Waste Symposium

The construction industry is starting to make moves towards implementing a circular economy in housing, with an increasing focus on embodied carbon in buildings and a greater appreciation on the waste generated in construction and demolition activities. Less focus has been placed on how innovations in this area can be harnessed to not just reduce waste generated through construction but also find ways to reuse waste within the homes constructed.

The Homes from Waste symposium will bring together experts involved in addressing circular economy issues specifically in the construction and building industry. All aspects of the supply chain will be considered – from the waste collectors and recyclers to material manufacturers and the end-users – builders and developers because this is not a problem that can be fixed by a single point solution. The Sustainable Homes Challenge involves students from across Australia working in multi-disciplinary teams to design a sustainable, affordable and liveable home from waste-derived building products.
