Abstract :

A green building is an environmentally sustainable building, designed, constructed and operated to minimise the total environmental impacts. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the primary greenhouse gas emitted through human activities. It is claimed that 5% of the world’s carbon dioxide emission is attributed to cement industry, which is the vital constituent of concrete. Due to the significant contribution to the environmental pollution, there is a need for finding an optimal solution along with satisfying the civil construction needs. Apart from normal concrete bricks, a clay brick, Foam concrete is a new innovative technology for sustainable building and civil construction which fulfills the criteria of being a Green Material. This paper concludes that Foam Concrete can be an effective sustainable material for construction and also focuses on the cost effectiveness in using Foam Concrete as a building material in replacement with Clay Brick or other bricks.
