Energy-Conscious | Use of Eco-Friendly Glasses in a Building

It’s nothing new to say that, we are on the verge of wiping out our most the resources. And the most scaring one is the Energy. Inappropriate use of resources has led us to a situation where we are not only short of resources but we have created harm to the environment is a massive way. Global warming, ozone layer depletion, shortage of water electricity and much more are merely a result of human’s need and greed.

One of the industry where the most efficient use of resources can be done but due to the lack of awareness, wide wastage of resources are done – ‘Construction.’ While constructing a home or a building most the people are unaware of the fact which materials to use which are not budget-friendly but also eco-friendly and most importantly will be durable for longer period of time.

Today we are gonna talk about one such material which will not only save energy but have several other benefits too.

Eco-friendly glasses

It would be not wrong to say that almost every building utilizes glass in one or another way, still it is one of the most overlooked building construction material. There are many who remain unaware that using right type of glass can make a major difference in the energy consumption of home.

Not only one use an ‘eco-friendly’ glass while constructing their house but it is also feasible to change the glass of an existing house/apartment from regular to one that is more ‘Eco-friendly.’

With the raising awareness about use of sustainable material increasing day by day, property developers and real estate companies are also doing their bit in improving the environment for a better future. This has led to the boost of green buildings.

One of the most vital materials within the construction of a green building is glass whose specialized energy efficient and eco-friendly varieties like solar control and tinted glass are used.

Green Buildings

The development of green buildings is a step towards that direction. Green buildings are buildings which use less water, optimize energy efficiency, conserve natural resources, generate less waste and provide healthier spaces for occupants, as compared to a conventional building.

They are also beneficial for the environment as most buildings use recycled and environmental friendly building materials and provide effective building management systems.

Econaur is one such platform which promotes the use of eco-friendly products and sustainable development. Econaur’s main focus is to promote the construction of more and more green buildings in the country. Also to aware people of the advantages and clear the myths about the green buildings.

Use of Glass in Architecture of Green Buildings

To achieve all of this, developers use glass as a major component during the construction. Glass is known to be an excellent green material. Glass, as a transparent material, allows sunlight into the building reducing the need for artificial lighting – which contributes to around 25 per cent of energy consumed in buildings today.

Types of glasses like solar control glasses and low-e glass can reflect heat or UV rays to maintain optimal temperature inside the building. Glass in buildings also allows daylight to make the interiors airier and more open.

From design, appearance, thermal performance and comfort, to simple aesthetics, selecting the right glass is inevitably important for constructing a green building.

Glasses such as AIS Ecosense, a low-E high performance energy efficient glass helps a green building achieve great balance between all the parameters, and blocks a high amount of solar radiation by reflecting away the infrared part of sunlight.

This helps building remain invariably cool in summers and cuts down on the energy bills and air conditioning usage. And in the winters, they ensure solar gain. So no matter what the season is, people can stay comfortable inside all the times.

Glass and Energy Saving

When used properly, glasses can reduce the total energy consumption by anywhere between 8-10 percent. Hence, the accrued benefits of using glasses keep growing over the years.

Furthermore, it is not just the recurring savings but also the reduction in capex because of the lower energy loads required for conditioning the building that further augments the versatile nature of these glasses.

Typically, the heat gained or lost through glazing in a normal building is anywhere between 40-50 percent and using the right type of glass can bring down the energy consumption by 30-40 percent. The incremental cost for high performance glazing can be recovered in a time span of 3-4 years.

Are these eco-friendly glasses expensive?

Once considered an expensive commodity, glass today is cost efficient. It is true that, to begin with, achieving Green Buildings meant shelling out something extra. This was the majorly due to limited supply of access to technology and products that help achieve such efficiency.

However, today we have product manufacturers, cutting across product lines, which have been able to develop green friendly products in India thereby making it affordable and price-competitive.

The products efficiency and pricing have come to a level where it is practically possible to recover the incremental cost within the first few months of completion and occupancy.

Impact on Environment

The biggest advantage that makes glass a major component in green buildings is the fact that it is recyclable and also does not have a huge impact on the environment itself. Glass can play a role in accomplishing greater indoor environmental quality and when used carefully, can also improve energy efficiency.

Along with tangible benefits, glass can also provide enhanced air quality, excellent daylighting and general health & well-being of the occupants. Through a global point of view, conservation of scarce national resources is also a huge advantage while its widespread acceptance and enhanced marketability for the project makes it a viable option for the industry too.

Conclusion

Little things only makes the big differences. And as little as making changes to what kind of glass you are using in your home/building can make a huge difference for both you and the environment. I think it is the perfect time now that we should start thinking for nature and also for our future generations. Making changes today only can ensure a safer future tomorrow.

Dehumidifier wheels can be installed in supermarkets, clean rooms, gyms, office buildings, industrial sites, hospitals, retail facilities, and other dehumidification applications where corrosion protection, condensation control are needed.

Applications –

  • The rotors are maintenance free.

There is Rapid rise in Green Airports in India Now !

With the Growing Infrastructure and raising awareness about green buildings, there is a rise in Green Airports in the recent years.

Recently, PM Modi lays foundation stone for Trichy airport integrated terminal building

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday laid the foundation stone for the new integrated passenger terminal building at the international airport in Trichy , through video-conferencing from Tirupur . The new building will have incorporating local themes. The first phase of the project also includes the construction of aerobridges, car parking, and new residential quarters of AAI and CISF staff.

The new airport terminal project manager P Srikrishna said along with new integrated terminal building, construction of new technical block cum control tower would also be taken up at an estimation of Rs 75 crore. All the work would come under the first phase of this project”, he said.

The terminal building would be constructed as per the standards of ‘GRIHA’ (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment) four star rated sustainable design which maximises the use of natural light within the building and incorporates renewable energy measures, such as rainwater harvesting, ground source heat pumps and photovoltaic panels.

No objection certificate for height clearance has been already obtained for 42.5 meter, as this building would be the highest one at the airport. As the existing apron is accommodating only seven planes, two additional bays will be constructed at a cost of Rs 10 crore to meet the demand. The new terminal building would come up at an estimated cost of Rs 951 crore near the existing terminal building. The project is expected to be completed on October 18, 2021.

 

The Airport Authority of India (AAI) has already sanctioned Rs 951 crore for the construction of the 61,634-square-meter integrated terminal building, along with a new apron and Air Traffic Control (ATC) tower. Out of the total outlay of Rs 951 crore, Rs 564 crore has been allotted to construct an integrated terminal building. The new two-level modular integrated passenger terminal building would be fully air-conditioned to handle 3.63 million passengers a year on full capacity and 2,900 passenger during peak hours with provision for expansion.

Conclusion

To make the terminal building eco-friendly, it follows the concept of green building with innovative technology. Making a sustainable building is always profitable in the long run to both the environment and in this case to the nation. Also, this is a great way to promote and declare that more green buildings should be constructed in our country. So, overall it is a commendable step taken and also its foundation stone is laid by one of the most powerful leader of our country PM Narendra Modi, so as a citizen it is the proud moment for all of us. The new airport will follow the Low energy Consumption & water consumption equipment all over its Premises.

 

 

perlcon block bond

Perlcon’s BlockBond – An Revolutionary Product that replaces the use of Sand in Construction

Blockbond – The Newest Aid In Construction

Construction – a term with which everyone is aware of. Thousands of new buildings are getting constructed every day. But with everything around us moving so fast, don’t you feel our construction ways and materials used are still quite old for the new world.

For the construction of normal buildings, the basic materials which are required are cement, dry sand, concrete, bricks and blocks and much more.

But what if there is a way which doesn’t require sand for construction.

Blockbond –

Nowadays, AAC/CLC blocks are used for construction as they are lightweight, evenly finished provides better insulation. Also, they are much stronger & use less water than the CC/Blocks which were previously used.

However, such great properties of these new blocks are nullified when they are mixed with the old method of preparing mortar i.e. mixing dry sand and cement. Due to their mismatching properties, thicker joints are formed and huge possibility of cracks in walls also arises.

What if there is a way to maximize the use of AAC/CLC blocks.

Use Perlcon Blockbond, light weight mortar, which is not only lightweight but also provides high strength and low probability of cracks.

It is a sand free plaster which is a premixed material supplied in bags. It can be applied directly by just mixing it with water.

https://econaur.com/product/perlcons-blockbond/

Benefits of using Blockbond –

  • As it is sand free, it reduces the dead load on the building.
  • It is anti-fungus
  • Saves time and cost
  • Lasts long
  • It is self-curing reduces water consumption by minimizing ill-effects of hard water.
  • Crack free
  • Dust free and clean
  • Lightweight
  • Efflorescence free
  • Smart construction which reduces manpower

As per the survey “constructing a 12-floor building with this material would save 1,100 metric tonnes of sand, 6,000 kilolitres of water, 7,500 kilowatt of electricity and 15,000 kilowatt by way of energy conservation due to insulation in plasters, besides huge savings in time and labour costs”.

Technical Specifications –

Dry density: 1150 kg/cum (+/- 5 %)

Initial setting time: 90 – 120 mins

Final setting time: 200 – 260 mins

Pot life: 3 hrs

Coating thickness: 10 – 18 mm
