Tech Faculty Serve on Statewide Sustainable Building Advisory Committee

Two Georgia Tech faculty are contributing to the newly created Sustainable Building Material Technical Advisory Committee, a group focused on reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in our state. Russell Gentry, director of the Digital Building Lab in the College of Design, was appointed chair and will lead the effort to track carbon for trees used in construction. Wood building materials will then be part of the state’s carbon registry, which will allow carbon credits to be bought and sold.

The committee also relies on Valerie Thomas, the Anderson-Interface Chair of Natural Systems in the H. Milton School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, to determine net carbon benefit of sustainable materials versus conventional construction materials.
