On Wednesday 2nd March, ASBP hosted a seminar at Futurebuild 2022 – Net zero and natural materials
Natural materials include timber, hemp, straw, clay and wool and can be used for a wide range of construction applications such as structural elements, insulation and finishes. Interest in these materials continues to grow due to their sustainability credentials including technical performance, lower embodied carbon, health benefits and ability to lock-up carbon during their lifespan. What role do natural materials have to play in delivering net zero buildings, and are there any barriers to their increased uptake?
