During summertime people, make an attempt to beat the heat. However, running air conditioners can always be costly and wasteful.
Sustainable construction typically refers to using renewable and recyclable materials when building new structures, as well as introducing new methods and technologies that help reduce energy consumption and waste. ...
Ingevity Corporation (NYSE:NGVT) today announced an environmental product declaration (EPD) was published for its Evotherm® M1 Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA) technology. The Evotherm M1 EPD distinguishes Ingevity as the firs...
The conflict in Ukraine and the European sanctions imposed on Russia, as a response, has a significant impact on energy and commodity prices. The confluence of supply unpredictability, high energy costs, and growing material costs has heightened the necessity of embracing sustainable, locally accessible alternatives like wood.
In Portland, Oregon, roofs covered with roofs have become a usual sight. For stormwater management, the city is considered a leader as it incorporates green infrastructure, free street trees, green roofs, and rebates for small residential housing footprints.
Breakthrough Energy Ventures and DCVC co-lead a $55 Million Series A round to pilot a process to make carbon-negative Portland Cement at industrial scales.
At Monash University, scientists have come up with a new design motif that has been derived from the stiff external covering of invertebrates that might help in making more damage tolerant materials for building and construction in the future.
Researchers from Monash University have discovered a new design motif derived from the rigid external covering of invertebrates that may help create more damage tolerant materials for future building and construction.
Holcim Australia and New Zealand today announced that it will construct and operate a new facility in Auckland.
The construction industry is an important source of carbon dioxide emissions worldwide, accounting for approximately 8% of total global CO2 emissions, according to International Energy Agency figures.
Soltech researchers and their colleagues from JSC Research Center of Construction have demonstrated the practical utility of their previously patented method for determining at what temperature soil freezes and how much unfrozen water it contains.
Researchers at MIT have developed a novel approach for manufacturing load-bearing joints using discarded tree forks. Their innovative system combines numerical modeling, 3D printing and robotic automation to dramatically reduce complex, time-consuming machining.
Researchers investigated the vibration patterns resulting from laser-induced shock waves to identify defects in concrete structures.
One of the biggest challenges facing mankind is alleviating climate change. Currently, a team of scientists at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has created a totally new material that is an economical, high-impact sustainable solution to handle one of the biggest contributors to climate change—concrete.
A new report, ‘Sustainable by design’, by engineering consultancy Patrick Parsons, based on research* with 100 senior executives of UK construction firms, reveals that despite the majority (85%) believing the industry is doing enough to reach net zero by 2050, there are significant barriers to achieving this target.
