Repurposing Salvaged Materials

Oregon Convention Center: Room A107-A109

Track: Healthy Materials

Understanding the need to reduce the impact on our waste stream from construction demolition, we will explore the supply chain of waste, opportunities and challenges to salvaging materials, and value gained from repurposed materials.  The goals of this session are to demonstrate authentic examples of repurposed materials and to have a discussion around the challenges of creating a reuse economy, energized with a mixture of perspectives from the design, construction, artist, NGO, and owner communities.
