Nanotechnology for Sustainable Buildings : An Approach to More Efficient Buildings

Title: Nanotechnology for Sustainable Buildings : An Approach to More Efficient Buildings 
Author         : Ramy Baioumy Fouad
Collection   :M.Sc. Architecture
Abstract:
 Nanotechnology is an idea that most people simply didn’t believe.Construction is a massive global industry, with a very high environmental footprint. Many key players in the construction industry are pushing towards a more sustainable future, adopting new materials and new techniques. Green building professionals want to apply sustainable development in the design, construction and operation of buildings. They struggle to minimize the use of non-renewable resources like petroleum, natural gas and coal, and reduce waste and pollutants. Energy conservation is highly important to green building as it both saves resources and minimize waste and pollutants. ”It is not as though nanotechnology will be an option; it is going to be essential for coming up with sustainable technologies.” advises Paul Anastas, director of the American Chemical Society-Green Chemistry Institute. Globally, nanotechnologies are expected to reduce carbon foot print in three key areas: transportation, insulation in residential and commercial buildings, and generation of renewable photovoltaic energy. It is needless to mention that the last two of these three areas are centered in the building industry, pointing that building will in fact lead the green nano revolution. This research is divided into three parts which review this issue as follows: 1.Sustainability: this chapter discusses sustainability with an overview of sustainable architecture, considering all three dimensions of sustainability: environmental - economical - social, also performance criteria which measures sustainable architecture (LEED-BREEM), then shows how building can be sustainable and/or smart in favor of environment.
