A couple dozen contractors and a few dozen suppliers have gathered in a converted warehouse in downtown Detroit for a workshop on how to use reclaimed materials.
The goal is to use materials from a range of industries including aerospace, energy, auto parts, and consumer products to reduce CO2 emissions and create new uses for existing materials.
They have also assembled a panel of experts who will talk about the challenges of recycling, how to do it right, and how to scale up the process.
They’re also seeking volunteers who can help with training.
It’s a stark contrast to a similar workshop held in Washington, D.C., last week.
Organizers and attendees were greeted with a mix of cheers and jeers from the audience of hundreds.
It was a stark reminder of how far people still have to go to address the issue.
“This is a very big deal,” said Steve Shutt, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who was invited by the Center for Sustainable Technologies.
“I hope that people will be willing to pay attention and be aware that we’re in a very important transition and we need to start thinking about how we’re going to go about it.”
Shutt and other attendees were among more than 1,500 attendees at the event.
The Center for Responsible Materials has been running workshops for years to help communities get started on a recycling process that is far more cost-effective than building new homes.
In Detroit, the workshop focused on how the industry can make its processes more sustainable.
The project will be held on a campus at the university’s Center for Manufacturing Innovation, where more than 80 companies have been working to recycle old products.
The participants will take classes on how recycled materials can save money, cut CO2 pollution, and boost the efficiency of factories and other industries.
It will also include workshops to help local contractors get the materials they need to make products that can be reused.
The materials that will be used include old car tires, steel, copper, plastic, and plywood.
In many cases, the material can be easily made into materials that are much cheaper to recycle.
But a key part of the process is to remove the harmful chemicals.
In a way, recycling old tires is similar to how wood and other materials are used to build houses, Shutt said.
There are tons of wood in America.
But many of these materials can easily be reused, because they’re made from wood pulp, which is a cheap, versatile, low-toxicity product.
But the same material can also be used to make chemicals that are more toxic.
This is really a way of reclaiming wood and wood pulp as a way to improve the environmental footprint of those materials,” he said.
The recycled materials will also be reused for a variety of uses, including building insulation, furniture, and furniture products.
For instance, the materials can become roof sheaths for new construction, and they can be used for other types of insulation.
In the end, it all comes down to whether the materials are made from materials that have been processed and recycled properly.
If they’re processed and reused correctly, they are highly effective in reducing emissions of CO2.
If not, they’re toxic.
Some of the materials that make up plywood are very hazardous, Shutter said.
He noted that when the wood is treated with water, it can become a highly flammable substance.
This means it can be a great way to keep out of reach of children, as well as a good way to generate heat in a building.
Plywood is not just used in roofing materials.
It’s also used to create insulation.
It is also used in industrial and automotive components, and as a filler for plastics.
Shutt said the industry is making strides toward making recycled materials more environmentally friendly.
He’s hoping the lessons learned will help make this transition easier.”
It will all be about the people that are involved.”
