Description: The need of today is to have energy efficient buildings materials and construction technologies that cater to this rising need. Hence, selecting construction and finishing materials that have low embodied energy and haveless operational and maintenance cost is the most powerful tool for the architects, designers and the constructors to achieve high energy efficiency in buildings. This special volume on ‘Materials and Technologies for Green Construction’ contains Ten chapters which address a wide range of issues pertaining to building materials and technologies with reference to energy efficiency. This volume demonstrates that alternatives to modern building materials are available and that today it is possible to produce building materials and select raw materials from an ecological perspective.
