Session 1: 14:00-15:25
Professor in Indoor Air Chemistry, University of York
- What are the sources of indoor air pollution indoors?
- What role do building materials play?
- What can we do about it?
Director of Green Chemistry, University of York
- There are no shortages of residual renewable resources on our planet such as agricultural arisings and waste paper. Nature provides us with our Periodic Table of structure, form and function that could be used to create biobased, rather than petroleum-derived, fixtures and fittings.
- Waste agricultural straw can be converted into bioboards held together with bio silicate binders that are formaldehyde, isocyanate, phenol and urea-free as alternatives for chipboard and MDF.
- Waste starch can be converted into switchable adhesives enabling recycling of carpet tiles and waste paper can be converted into adhesives for metal-metal bonding.

As well as different types of homes, there will be an abundance of shared spaces and places, communal gardens and food-growing, co-working, creative and community spaces, a Health Hub, a community canteen, an arts venue and exercise facilities for all ages.
