The Tech City Co-Op

The Building industry accounts for 30% of Global Carbon Emissions with 40% coming from production and 60% coming from building efficiency. The Green New Deal calls for our building stock to be upgraded to reduce our emissions, but how can we build better and use less energy in manufacturing? The Hudson River Valley has a long history of building material production. Many of these industries have been moved abroad leaving us with a carbon intensive building process and post-industrial disinvestment. By creating recycling and localized building material production infrastructure, we can foster a new co-operative of sustainable industrial facilities. This infrastructure can facilitate symbiotic production relationships towards holistic quality building materials.
