The whole world is dealing with tremendous environmental issues like change in weather patterns, hotter summers, shorter winters, insufficient monsoons, and the construction industry is one of the top contributors for the rise of carbon content due to the rise of the housing sector leading to the consumption of more raw materials, energy and other non-renewable resources. Preserving the worldâ€™s ecology and taking care of its finite resources is now important more than ever. To deal with the rising global warming and to reduce the climate change impact of the unfriendly industries and enterprises green technology comes into play.
1. The demand for material has been continuously rising with the increasing need for housing both in rural and urban areas.
2. The resources used to manufacture construction materials affect the environment by depleting natural resources, using energy, and releasing pollutants to the land, water.
3. Commercial exploitation of traditional building materials by various industries has aggravated the situation. Construction activities like grading, demolition, operation of diesel engines are responsible for air pollution.
Civil engineers can work towards developing innovative green buildings using new environmentally friendly, safe, and non-toxic materials and smart monitoring techniques. The use of green technology can reduce the amount of waste and pollution and provide an early warning message that is created during production, consumption, and impact of a natural disaster. Civil engineers have to see how they can meet the needs of society without damaging or depleting natural resources.
