Considering that the construction industry accounts for 38 percent of global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions, an increasing number of civil-engineering professionals are seeking to make the business more environmentally friendly. There are new technology and procedures that can be used to make construction more environmentally friendly.
Civil engineering, which covers disciplines such as structural design and environmental planning, is responsible for most of the work that is developed, built, and maintained throughout the world. New building materials and construction procedures, such as 3D printing and modular fabrication, have been developed because of research and new technology. These are more energy-efficient, less wasteful, and emit less pollutants while still retaining structural integrity, which is an important consideration.
The complexity of many basic construction materials, such as concrete, which contains a variety of materials in both traditional and green formulations, presents a significant challenge to making civil engineering more environmentally friendly. We have not, however, discovered a magical material that can entirely replace these.
We will maintain track of important sustainability topics in civil engineering and share them with you in the following blogs, audios, and videos, as well as in the future.
If you are a civil engineer who is interested in speaking on this subject. Let’s get together.
