Innovative materials for sustainable construction

Forum on the BAUTEC 2012

21–25 February 2012

Location: BAUTEC 2012, International Trade Fair for Building and Construction, Trade Fair Berlin
Program Development: Haute Innovation – Agentur für Material und Technologie
Presentation: Dr. Sascha Peters

Lightweight panels using bamboo rings, ultrasonically welded wood, insulation boards made of biomass of cattail plant or comb structures for high-strength lightweight structures: Increasingly, finding innovative sustainable building materials for the architecture. As part of Bautec in Berlin from 21–25 February 2012, HAUTE INNOVATION is invited to implement an exhibition of innovative materials as topic in hall 10.2. The focus is on biomaterials, lightweight solutions and functional materials. On 22 February 2012 a forum will be held, where producers and users will be reporting on materials for sustainable construction.
