Session A: Marine Environment
 - Challenges and solutions to the marine environment
Description: Excess nutrients, heavy metals and toxic substances, oil, marine litter including microplastics, invasive species, noise – the list of man-induced disturbances to the marine environment is long. While ca. 80% of the marine pollution originates from land, construction projects, oil exploration, off-shore aquaculture and shipping all contribute with different point-sources to ocean pollution. The effects of most pollutants in marine ecosystems are poorly known, particularly since different pollutants interact with each other, and with other stressors in marine ecosystems. In fact, there is no area in the ocean which would not be influenced by one or another human activity, with coastal areas as typical hotspots of multiple stressors. In this session we want to give an overview of contributions to a cleaner ocean, both concerning ecological effects of maritime or land-based pollution in marine ecosystems, and ways to mitigate them.  

 SDGs

SDG14 Life below water

SDT 14.1 By 2025, prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including marine debris and nutrient pollution
SDT 14.3 Minimize and address the impacts of ocean acidification, including through enhanced scientific cooperation at all levels
SDT 14.4 By 2020, effectively regulate harvesting and end overfishing, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and destructive fishing practices and implement science-based management plans, in order to restore fish stocks in the shortest time feasible, at least to levels that can produce maximum sustainable yield as determined by their biological characteristics
SDT 14.a "Increase scientific knowledge, develop research capacity and transfer marine technology..."

Session B: Bioeconomy
Description:

In this session, we invite industry actors to address opportunities and challenges in the bioeconomy and related technologies. How do we bring the Danish innovation and research solutions to the global, sustainable bioeconomy? 

Biobased economy cuts across sectors and industries and includes production of renewable biological resources as well as the use of side-streams and rest products to produce high-value products within food, feed, biobased materials, chemicals, cosmetics, medicinal goods, energy. The precondition for the bioeconomy is new knowledge, new technologies, new business models, and new value chains.

We have invited representatives from the industries related to bioeconomy to tell about their strategies for the bioeconomy and address the challenge and opportunities for business and research related to bioeconomy. Session B is part of DTU’s sector development project on bioeconomy with representatives from DTU’s departments.

Nicolai Hansen is CEO of KMC and has the overall responsibility for KMC, which supplies potato-based ingredients - of the highest quality and with documented provenance - to food industry clients throughout the world. Nicolai is chairman of the Danish Agricultural & Food Council’s Research Board and one of the main contributors to the newly published Industry strategy from Danish Agricultural & Food Council and DI: "World Class Food innovation towards 2030 - Bringing Danish Research Solutions to the Global, Sustainable Food Production"

Michael Persson is Head of Bioenergy at Danish Industries Association (DI) and chairing the association’s work within bioeconomy and is member of the Danish Government’s newly established bioeconomy panel

Lene Lange is Professor at DTU Chemical Engineering and member of the Danish Government’s bioeconomy panel and a number of international bioeconomy panels. She is one of the initiators of the DTU Sector Development project on bioeconomy.

Two ideation workshops will be held related to session B:

  1. “New Health-related opportunities in the Bioeconomy?”  Joint ideation of session B (Bioeconomy) & F (food)

    Biomass conversion and Biorefinery Technologies were in its initial phase focused on biofuel; now focus is much broader, aiming at unlocking the full potentials of the biomass; not just the energy content; and ensuring to use each biomass component to its highest value. Thus the value cascading use of biomass includes conversion to food and feed ingredients, biobased chemicals, materials and fuels. Further the circular approach is adhered to by ensuring that nutrients are circled back to the soil. However, new research is now opening for that Biorefineries, converting plant, algal, fungal and animal derived biomass, can lead to production of products with specific Health benefits. The ideation session will expand on such, highly interesting new opportunities. It will be done in a cross disciplinary approach, involving DTU VET, DTU Food, DTU Nano and DTU KT/BioEng.

    Chairs: Peter Rudahl and Pedro Moreno, Food and Lene Lange, Chemical Engineering

Joint CMP Room S09

Sustainable Materials Ideation Workshop

The sessions (C) Catalysis, (M) Materials and (P) Polymers will have a joint ideation session.

Here we will start by a “scientific speed dating”, where you have a quick 1:1 chat with other participants. Instead of just saying what you work with, think about:
- What can I contribute with (unique synthesis technique, material with specific properties, characterization etc.) ? 
- What challenges would I like help solving (a better materials synthesis/characterization technique etc.) ? 

We will then conclude the ideation session with a moderated common discussion to summarize some of the generated ideas and how they can be taken further through the Sustain Ideation framework.

Session E: Energy
- How to create cleaner and more renewable energy supplies
Description:  As part of the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), SDG-7 specifically addresses the challenge of “ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all”. The focus of this session will be on the sustainability dimension of energy systems. In our striving towards sustainable societies, the development of energy technologies need to be accompanied with comprehensive and quantitative sustainability assessments, which do not only encompass climate change but also other environmental impacts of energy products, technologies or systems at large. Such approach thus enables to identify, develop, refine and/or prioritise energy solutions that are as sustainable as possible. Contributions providing case studies and potential challenges associated with the development of energy technologies and the modelling of energy trajectories (e.g. national scale) together with quantitative sustainability assessments are thus welcome in this session.

How to assess if your technology is really sustainable?

To ensure we move towards more sustainability, it is important that the development of new energy technologies or systems goes along with a careful integration of the associated environmental impacts to obtain as low impacts as possible. To comprehensively assess and allow management of these environmental impacts, such as climate change, resource depletion or chemical pollution, life cycle assessment (LCA) is a very useful tool.

Based on a speed-dating format, this workshop will be centred on the integration of LCA as part of your technology/system development.

After a 5-minute introduction to LCA, you will be invited to move into one-to-one meetings or in small group meetings, where you will be able to directly exchange with LCA experts to discuss how to assess environmental impacts associated with your technology/system development and what LCA can bring as added value to demonstrate the environmental sustainability nature of your activities/projects. 

If you are interested in participating to the workshop, we invite you to reflect on your projects/activities, where you would need quantitative sustainability assessments, so you already have some thoughts prior to the meetings. To facilitate the organisation and logistics of the workshop, please let us know if you would like to have a 1-to-1 meeting (ca. 30 minutes) to discuss the potentials of applying LCA to your specific case; you may do so by sending an email to Alexis Laurent (alau@dtu.dk) with 2-3 words on your activities/projects/ideas. Else, we will organise the workshop in small groups, depending on the number of participants.

This ideation session, will concern the future of healthcare (in one hour!). Co-chaired by Thomas Kledal and Nazila Kamaly 
 
Acknowledging that we at DTU can develop novel technologies that may improve more people’s lives, the session will focus on the question ‘how can we optimize our impact on future healthcare?’ Hence, we will discuss how we identify, select and address the healthcare needs, where our technology may play the biggest role and provide the biggest health and economic benefit. The participants will provide input and raise additional questions related to this issue and further discuss who (we should engage with), where we should work, and how? For inspiration, we will draw attention to the UN, Sustainable Development Goal 3, ‘Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages’.

Session K: Deep Retrofit of Buildings
- A new perspective on renovation of buildings in our cities

Description: 

Deep Retrofitting – a new perspective on renovation of existing building stock in our Cities

Cities and real estate owners need a new perspective on renovation of buildings to the "(near) zero energy level" with a scalable approach: Deep Retrofitting. Renovating existing buildings must focus on breaking down silos between the various components, pushing for co-creation between suppliers, manufacturers and the demand side. Business as usual is not enough. There is a need to develop sustainable housing taking a user-centric approach, balancing occupant health and well-being with optimal energy efficiency.

Climate-KIC Nordic will hold a workshop as part of the annual Sustain conference, at Core Partner DTU, where VELUX and ROCKWOOL will set the scene presenting their ideas on sustainable buildings and outline the need for innovation to tackle the challenges and find solutions. REALDANIA, a philanthropic organisation based on investment activities working with the built environment, will also contribute with their views on these issues. 

 

Come and meet and have a dialogue with companies, researchers  and other stakeholders involved in Deep Retrofitting of existing buildings!
This session does not use abstract submissions.

Programme

  • 12.30 Introduction to Climate-KIC’s approach to retrofitting – Susanne Pedersen, Nordic Director
  • 12.40 Velux - Peter Foldbjerg, Senior manager, Daylight, Energy and Indoor Climate

    Status: 82 million Europeans live in unhealthy homes, in homes with damp, lack of daylight, overheating, low temperatures in winter, and other issues. Active House sets a framework for healthy and energy efficient buildings. RenovActive is a concrete case on how replicable and affordable renovation can be applied to a run-down housing unit, with seven generic replication elements as the core elements. BetterHome is an industry cooperation that removes hassle for home owners in the renovation process.

    Challenge:
    How can renovation solutions be scaled to increase the rate of renovation? How can we ensure that renovation of unhealthy homes addresses the main shortcomings and that a renovated home is healthier than before? Renovation solutions must bring tangible value to occupants. What do dwelling occupants perceive as good daylight conditions, good thermal comfort, fresh air, etc? These answer could be different from the preferences of office workers.
    12.50  Rockwool - Jens Eg Rahbek, Development Engineer
    Status: Deep Retrofit – How to speed up the transformation of the existing building stock into comfortable low energy buildings. A large part existing buildings have high energy consumption and a challenging indoor environment.  There is a need to update these buildings in order to improve the living conditions in the buildings and to save energy and money. 

    Challenge:
    Retrofitting is happening but we need to speed up the rate so that 3 times as many buildings are retrofitted per year than is the case today. 
    In order to do this the following must be provided:

    • Sustainable retrofit solutions and systems that can bring old buildings up to modern standards for energy consumption and indoor environment
    • Retrofit solutions that are smart and attractive so that they are prioritised above kitchen and bathroom renovations
    • Retrofit solutions that are resilient, safe and that protect the building against future climate change
    • Retrofit solutions that reduce the heating demand by improving the insulation value of the building envelope

  • 13.00 RealDania By and Byg - Jørgen Søndermark, Architect, Project Manager

    Status: 
    For many years now, focus has been almost unilateral on energy reduction. With good reason, one might add. Danish building codes have reduced the energy frame several times towards a near zero status. This ‘linear thinking’, however, cannot go on forever. When will energy frame reduction compromise one of the very reason we use energy; keeping indoors different from outdoors? Our indoor climate define our life quality; our health, sleep, appetite, performance and overall feeling of content. We spend 90% of our time indoor. 75% of all particles we are exposed to in the indoor climate are produced indoor. Sunde Boliger is a Realdania By & Byg 1:1 project demonstrating new solutions to enhance indoor climate quality at normal building costs, and some of these might be suitable for retrofitting as well.

    Challenge:
    When retrofitting, how can we ensure a healthy balance between energy reduction, environmental and climate change protection – and a healthy indoor climate? Is it possible to install indoor climate improvements as part of a general retrofit; where are the synergies, and when do we find conflicts of interests?

Session L: Smart Liveable Cities
Urbanization, Buildings, Transport, Water, Infrastructure 
Description:  How can urban infrastructure and architectural engineering provide more sustainable and smart liveable cities? Industry and households become ever more integrated with real time control of environmental systems and increasingly optimizing supply control of e.g. district heating systems and intelligent energy systems for variable renewable energy supplies. Drains and automatic flood warning systems may contribute to climate adaptation, and blue-green multifunctional areas may become crucial elements in urban planning together with transport management. All in pursuit to mitigate environmental impacts as the world’s population unavoidably becomes increasingly urbanized.

Session S: Smart cities in Smart Societies
The session aim to inspire and identify potential project ideas and new partnerships

Description:  Creating smart cities in smart societies demands a holistic approach combining academic disciplines and breaking down silos between the technical, the political and the user level. It also requires a close dialogue between cities, companies and researchers. 

This workshop will provide concrete examples from "Smart Cities Accelerator" (SCA, Interreg project) of how to improve indoor climate in local schools in a Danish municipality. Through collaboration between the municipality and the users, DTU Compute and Civil Engineering develop and test possible solutions. The whole process is closely followed by Institute of Anthropology (University of Copenhagen). 

The session will also address some of the legal barriers moving towards green transition and more renewable energy. (Data Protection rules, energy taxes, framework conditions, CO2 impacts )
