Carbon Drawdown Now! Prefabricated, Carbon-Storing Building Components Built Before Your Eyes

Making “drawdown buildings” - buildings that store more carbon than they emit - may be much less complicated than you think. Come watch a demonstration of a prefabricated building panel being assembled live on stage, built from carbon-storing, healthy, local, and biogenic materials as an example of the immediate potential to transform buildings into carbon sinks. Cost analysis and real-world case studies that feature these materials will be referenced, and a range of strategies from drop-in replacement materials to innovative new technologies will be presented. After this demonstration, you will have actionable tools available to dramatically reduce your next building’s carbon emissions, or even turn it into a carbon sink!
