At the AIA Conference on Architecture this week, architects, designers and firms are gathering in New York City to share their perspectives, and learn from others, about how to “build a blueprint for better cities” – with a focus on health, resilience and sustainability.
AIA states that “community sustainability goals are fulfilled in large part by an architect’s ability to create practical solutions to the challenges posed by climate change, population growth and the pursuit of more connected, healthier communities.”
American Chemistry Council (ACC) members provide the chemistries for the high-performance products and technologies that enable these practical solutions. From foam insulation materials that help keep buildings warm and save energy, to vinyl wall coverings and sealants that can help ventilation systems work effectively and improve indoor air quality, to plastic pipes that can provide clean water to occupants, chemistry innovations are the “Science Behind Sustainability.”
Here are just a few specific examples of how chemistry can contribute to structural resilience and sustainability in the built environment:
