CarbonHouse : Towards a Carbon Ontology

JEC Korea DAY 3 Speaker: Mark GOULTHORPE, Associate Professor @ MIT Dept Architecture

- The macro issues of building and energy use forecast for coming decades: a doubling of buildings by mid-century
- Why the hydrocarbon legacy channelled into composite buildings offers an alternative material paradigm that would have significant environmental and economic benefit at civilizational scale and in a short timeframe
- Research into emerging morphologies of CNT, graphene and CFoam (CarbonHouse) : how composites might be applied to the construction sector
- Perspectives on embodied and in-use energy, life cycle analysis, etc will offer a compelling “why?” as to the benefit composite buildings might offer

JEC Group is a non-profit organization entirely dedicated to promoting composite materials and fostering their applications globally. Publisher of the JEC Composites Magazine, the industry's reference magazine, JEC organizes several events around the world, including JEC World, the leading international exhibition dedicated to composites and their applications, which takes place annually in Paris. JEC media, events and digital channels connect a global community of professionals from the composites industry and beyond, to enable knowledge transfer, create networking opportunities, and highlight innovation.
