Circular Economy

“Dealing with loops”

The circular concept emerges from the understanding and analysis of earth’s biological systems. In terms of biomimicry, the ecological processes of natural ecosystems are the “primers” of conceiving the idea. Based on the ecosphere functions, the dynamic model is evolving. (...)

Passive Energy Buildings and Insulation - 5 common materials

smart roof

As we have seen in previous articles, thermal insulation performance is usually based on a combination of two characteristics:
  1. Physical properties of the insulation materials to prevent heat transfer.
  2. Materials with proper pore size that allows air to be entrapped within their pores.
Gases have poor thermal conductivity properties in comparison with liquids and solids. Therefore, they are good insulating substances. If gases are to be entrapped within the mass of the material, heat transfer (through convection) will be prevented.
Heat transfer through convection is limited to small pockets where the density is minimized (high entrapped gas composition). For example, this is observed in the structure of a foam material (gas alveoli or bubbles).

While the majority of insulation in the infrastructures is for thermal purposes, the term also applies to hydro insulation, acoustic insulation, fire insulation, and impact insulation (i.e. vibrations caused by industrial applications). The appropriate material selection will be based on its ability to perform several of these functions at once.

Below are five insulation materials commonly used in recent years:

3 Green Technologies - Environmental Blog

2018 is going to be a monumental year for green technologies. We have hit a point where climate change has been globally recognized by most of the world’s political communities. And up until now, green technology has been expensive and in most cases inaccessible. In 2018, that is going to change. Scientists have been making…
