about this item

There are two themes to the volume. One is to reduce emissions during the construction of buildings, including the production, processing, and transport of the building materials. The other is to design and build buildings that are more environmentally sustainable than conventional ones. The topics include alternative building material using industrial and agricultural wastes, environmental sustainability through recycling incineration bottom ash for producing autoclaved aerated concrete, a parametric study on exterior insulation systems and heat reflective paints for energy efficiency in buildings, and natural pozzolan mortars exposed to chlorides as a sustainable building material.
