This is the second session of "Experts on: UK-China Built Environment Road to Carbon Zero" Webinar Series. The series aims at exchanging expertise, generating collaborations, and raising awareness amongst all professionals in the construction and building material industry in UK and China.

In this webinar, experts will give insights on the latest technologies in reducing carbon emission in China and UK/EU's cement and concrete industries. Following the expert presentations, there will be a 30-minute Q&A session. Our guest expert speakers include:

  • Dr. Tongbo Sui: Tongbo is the vice president of Sinoma International Engineering Co., a senior consultant of China Cement Association, and a visiting professor of University College London (UCL). He is also member of American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), the American Concrete Institute (ACI), the International Federation of Materials and Structures Research and Experiments (RILEM), British Concrete Institute (ICT). His current research focuses on low-carbon advanced cementitious materials
  • Ling Wang: Ling is a professor-level senior engineer of China Building Materials Academy and doctoral supervisor. She is the Secretary-General of China Building Materials Federation Concrete Admixture Branch, Deputy Secretary-General of National Concrete Standardization Technical Committee, and a Senior Member of RILEM. Her research focuses on concrete durability and concrete admixtures.
  • Dr Seyed Ghaffar is an Associate Professor of Civil Engineering. He is a Chartered Civil Engineer (CEng, MICE), a Member of the Institute of Concrete Technology (MICT) and a Fellow of Higher Education Academy (FHEA). Dr Ghaffar's research covers a number of construction materials, with a focus on the development of low carbon technologies suitable for new and retrofitting applications by combining materials sciences and innovative technologies.
  • Dr. Juan Ferriz-Papi is a lecturer at the University of Salford. He has a wealth of experience in the construction industry in Spain and the United Kingdom. His main research includes the life cycle assessment of building carbon footprint, circular economy and the application of recycled building materials performance, including C&D waste, incineration of bottom ash, molten recycled glass and recycled plastic.
