The World Wide Web. - (February 11, 2013) - Tomorrow is the start of our Virtual Summit 2013 - don't miss our exciting Opening Keynote Address "Building-Integrated Vegetation: Redefining the Landscape or Chasing a Mirage?" by Dr. Aditya Ranade, Senior Analyst on the Lux Research Intelligence team leading the Sustainable Building Materials Intelligence service.
What does this have to do with living architecture? Plenty! Aditya is the lead author of the recent and much extolled Lux Research report on the potential of our burgeoning greenroof and wall market. Armed with an Engineering degree, MBA, and PhD in Macromolecular Science, Aditya has enjoyed a long and varied career in science-driven innovation and emerging technologies.
Lux Research states that greenroofs will account for $7 billion of the market, presenting a $2 billion opportunity to suppliers of polymeric materials such as geosynthetic fabrics and waterproof membranes. Greenwalls will swell to a $680 million market, using $200 million worth of materials such as self-supporting polyurethane foam growth media.
The full contents are only available to clients of the Sustainable Building Materials Intelligence service...But want to learn more? Don't miss Aditya's in-depth, exclusive research Keynote tomorrow, Tuesday, February 12 @ 10:00 am EST (15:00 GMT), followed by his live 15-minute Q & A Session.
