German-based Bayer MaterialScience, renowned supplier for production of high-performance materials and an arm of chemical and pharmaceutical giant Bayer AG, is bringing its expertise in developing zero-emission buildings for the second time to the UrbanTec China Conference 2013 – the only sustainable urban development and better living event in China.
In addition to exhibiting its success stories and green building projects all over the world, including in China, experts from the company will also be addressing conference delegates at forum sessions for the “Smart Buildings and Energy Efficiency” track on May 29.
Bayer MaterialScience initiated the EcoCommercial Building program (ECB) working with building decision maker in the construction sector. Its project in Qingdao, China, jointly developed with Chinese ECB partners, apolyurethane plant and office building which is also the company’s first zero-emission building in the country and boasts zero carbon emission. And in 2013, it has received a gold-standard ranking from the internationally renowned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.
The building focuses on the comprehensive utilization of energy such as the use of a passive building envelope, energy saving LED lighting technology, a thermally active building system (TABS), a geothermal heat pump system, and a constant supply of renewable energy via the photovoltaic power generation system.
A structure that uses no external energy and does not emit carbon on an annual basis, is considered as having net zero energy, according to the requirements of the U.S. Department of Energy.
