Materials for Sustainable Built Environment
This special topical volume on ‘Materials for Sustainable Built Environment’ is aimed to cover the recent advancements in the area of building materials with reference to energy efficiency and environmental sustainability in buildings. There are many opportunities available for materials advances to reduce the energy use and atmospheric emissions associated with the building and construction sector. The use of energy efficient building materials and products promotes conservation of dwindling nonrenewable resources. In modern construction, the key challenge is to choose materials that can reduce burdens to the environment. The volume will be of special interest to environmentally-minded producers and suppliers of building materials and to engineers, and building professionals, and also be useful to researchers and scientists.
