| In glass tempering, we look for equipment that uses less energy, leading to fewer emissions. But sometimes, the numbers are too good to be true.
| Making new and existing buildings as energy efficient as possible is one way to help meet the EU’s CO2 reduction goals.
| The significance of balancing operational and embodied carbon continues to grow.
| Global environmental concern is motivating efforts to improve energy efficiency in all industrial sectors. And glass tempering is no exception.
| Glass production is an energy-intensive process by its nature, so even small reductions there can result in considerable savings in energy and costs.
| Re-thinking the life-cycle of architectural glass brings together recent research into the economic, technical, environmental and logistical viability of closed-loop construction glass recycling.
| When you install rooflights, you’re adding a host of benefits to your home. Rooflights can be installed in tight spaces where traditional windows cannot, they flood rooms with natural light and can be tailored to fitted in any home, in a wide…
| Over half the world’s seven billion inhabitants live in cities, by the year 2050 the number will grow to almost ten billion. In order to avoid a climatic collapse in the metropolises, there is no other alternative to energy-efficient buildings.
| The recent issues related to energy saving and environmental sustainability in the construction sector are particularly problematic for professionals dealing with existing buildings, especially when buildings have a historic value...
| Despite increasingly demanding requirements to save energy and a focus on reducing our use of prime energy, we also need to bear in mind economics and cost effectiveness during the construction phase of buildings, especially on larger projects.
