The International Olympic Committee’s new energy-efficient headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland, will incorporate materials from Olympic sponsor Dow Chemical. Dow’s silicone sealants will bind glass to metal framing. A styrene-acrylic binder will reduce emissions of formaldehyde from the walls. Dow’s cellulose will improve ceramic tile adhesives. And the garden roof of the parking lot will use a Dow waterproof membrane.
