The Oregon Built Environment and Sustainable Technologies Center announced a new consortium to bring together businesses and green building researchers.
The new consortium has already gathered funding for two projects.
The Sustainable Built Environment Research Consortium, as the 11-member group is called, met last month and selected two research projects, both with potential application in the planned Oregon Sustainability Center building.
The projects are:
- The use of sustainable cement-based products in building components, led by researchers Jason Ideker and David Trejo at Oregon State University.
- Monitoring water use in occupied buildings to inform conservation technology selection, led by Evan Thomas of Portland State University.
