Article Preview

Heat from solar radiation contributes to the high energy usage in Taiwan. Green roofs are well known efficient tools for heat insulation. Reservoir sedimentation is a serious problem in Taiwan. This paper studies reservoir sludge as planting substrate in green roofs to solve the problem of reservoirs, and to reduce the indoor heat translation from the roof. The six physical properties of calcined sludge particles are examined, and their thermal performance is evaluated.
