Plastics in Construction STBA Conference

12th June 2019

ASBP Mission:  To accelerate the transformation to a healthy, low carbon built environment by championing the use of demonstrably sustainable building products.’ With this in mind Mark Lynn Vice Chair of the ASBP and Managing Director of Eden Renewable Innovations Ltd together with ASBP Technical and research Associate Katherine Adams addressed the STBA/SPAB conference on the thorny subject of Plastics in Construction, held in London on the 11th June.

The construction industry accounts for 23% of all plastic used and produces 3 x more packaging waste than all UK households combined. Plastics are used in a myriad of forms within the industry, including PS, PIR, PUR and PET for insulation, PVC for windows, doors, ducting, drainage & pipework, cables and polythene and Polypropylene for membranes, and with global demand for construction products expected to more than double by 2050 it is imperative that the industry addresses the use of plastics whilst engaging the supply chain on alternatives for construction products and packaging.
