A materials emissions expert from Markes International has been invited to speak at this year’s Healthy Buildings conference. (Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Queensland, Australia, 8 – 12 July 2012).
Dr Caroline Widdowson, will make two presentations to delegates at the event, providing an insight into: ‘Chemical release from products and materials: Innovations to simplify chemical emission testing for industry’ and ‘Harmonising analysis of VOCs from Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation.’
During the conference, which is supported by the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ), Dr Widdowson will also lead interactive workshops which explore ‘analytical check standards and associated proficiency testing schemes’ and ‘robust measurement of LCI emissions for reliable product assessment.’
The aim of the event is to bring together practitioners, policymakers, analytical professionals, government agencies, architects, academics and researchers, from across the world to discuss built environments and how to make them healthier, more productive and more sustainable places to live, work, and learn.
The conference program will include three symposia, fourteen workshops and nine panel discussions conducted in parallel to conference sessions. In addition to this, organisers estimate that around 600 papers will be presented on a wide range of topics.
