Have you ever stopped to think about the heaps of wood that end up wasted on construction sites? Isn't it heartbreaking? But, what if there was a way not only to rescue this wood but also to re-create it with a new purpose? This isn’t merely about being eco-friendly. It's a movement towards sustainable progress.
In this episode, we deep dive into the fusion of construction and technology with our special guest, Eric Law of Urban Machine. Eric isn't just someone who cares about trees; he's the genius behind a robot that's set to revolutionize our approach to managing wood waste.
Here’s a snapshot of what we cover in this episode:
- Robotics & Recycling: Eric presents his revolutionary robot, purpose-built to give discarded wood a second shot at life.
- The Tale of Every Timber: Step into the world of wood, understanding its story and realizing that recycling is as much about honoring its history as it is about reuse.
- Highlighting the Wood Waste Issue: A deep dive into a frequently bypassed issue in construction - the waste of wood. We discuss its environmental impact and the urgent call for a change in approach.
