Today’s Waste Collection: Environment-Conscious and 
Cost-Effective Solutions

08:00 - 09:00

For decades, little has changed in waste collection. But with today’s product innovations, multi-residential communities, municipalities, and urban developments have new solutions to avoid age-old waste-management issues. Today’s presentation will provide an overview of crane-lifted semi-underground waste systems, how they work, and the problems they solve including environmental hazards, odor, high operational cost, and excessive ground space.

Sintered Compact Surfaces for Building Facades

11:15 - 12:15

Materials used on building facades need to withstand many things, including water, wind, sunlight, and sometimes severe weather conditions. They also need to hold up to the effects of people who may inadvertently or even intentionally cause damage. Choosing a material to use for a facade is certainly influenced by the ability to hold up over time but also by the available size and weight, not to mention the appearance, of the material. Being able to install it in a manner that is efficient and cost-effective usually rounds out the criteria for selecting a building material for building facades. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely sintered compact surfaces that can be used for curtain walls, rain screens, siding applications, and other common wall systems for both residential and commercial buildings.
