The event,which is part of PCERs year-long symposium called Green Key,will comprise audio-visual presentations by experts and trendsetters in this subject. Naren Kothari,secretary,PCERF,said,with growth and development happening on all fronts in our country,the disposal of residual waste,domestic as well as industrial,has become a major concern and a challenge for the authorities and caretakers. In spite of each one of us being the source and victim of this problem,few amongst us have taken the initiative to address the issue.
The symposium will address issues like how large quantities and of wastes and industrial by-products can be used in construction industry. The symposium will be addressed by UK-based architect Alex Leoor and his team who have taken up the task of building the first-of-its-kind in our country,a house built entirely with used tyres in Kodaikanal.
The other speakers are S S Shinde,joint municipal commissioner of Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai,who will speak on an ongoing project under MMRDA and Yatin Pandya from Ahmedabad who will speak on Redefining the Greys of the Green.
