Use of natural resources in the built environment – state-of-the-art research activities

​​​The built environment is known as the largest consumer of natural resources to build and maintain buildings and relevant infrastructures. In the last century, the material stock has increased drastically due to economic and population growth. This expansion of the material stock is directly linked to high resource consumption (e.g., materials, water, energy, land, etc.), waste discharge, and local and global environmental impacts. It is obvious that the current practices of resource production and consumption are far away from being sustainable. 
In the seminar leading experts in the field of urban metabolism and material flow in the built environment will present ongoing research activities.
