"George Elvin has spoken at five of our global BOND Events, and he continues to educate, stimulate and captivate our audiences to a level unmatched by any other speaker."
– Oliver Needs, Director, BOND Events


My talks on post-petroleum design and other green strategies have inspired audiences in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the Americas for decades.


Sample Talk Topic: Post-Petroleum Building Materials 

We use more oil to make plastic building products than for any other use except transportation and consumer products. And while plastics have many advantages, they are drawing increasing attention in green building. Polyvinyl chloride faces growing restrictions for health reasons, and global plastic production generates two billion tons of CO2 annually. But alternatives that offer the advantages of plastic with fewer environmental and health concerns are on the rise. Join Dr. George Elvin for a tour of Post-Petroleum Building Materials — new materials that use much less oil than ordinary ones. You’ll see how innovations in bioplastics, nanotechnologies, and hi-tech twists on traditional materials are leading to greater energy independence, health and sustainability in architecture.
