Re-Thinking Materials: Profiting from Innovation
IoN, as part of its Material Innovation Service for Scottish Enterprise, is pleased to be partnering with LoCal-Net and Architecture and Design Scotland to bring leading entrepreneurs and innovators to Abertay University on Friday 16th November 2012 to share how they see waste as an opportunity, not a burden.
The morning session focuses on construction and includes MegaTech Projects (Megatrax® - Introducing a commercial solution to problematic materials), Kraft Architecture (Sustainable insulation), the Wood Studios (Innovation in timber), Tom Morton Architecture (Ecological architecture, research and conservation of historic buildings) and Highland Colour Coaters and Galvanisers (Successful diversification and opportunities in new markets).
The afternoon session focuses on new markets for waste and includes Moock Environmental (Waste Toner Powder as a Colouring Pigment in Concrete) and Impact Solutions (Adding Value to Plastic Waste).
Other delegates and exhibitors include Scottish Passive House Centre, Future Komfort, Stuart King Architecture & Design, and Enterprise Europe Network.
In addition there will be plenty of opportunities to seek advice on advanced material solutions for your business, access to funding, and links to business and research partners.
