Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic bringing about unprecedented economic disruptions, the rise of the green building trend remains unscathed. The green building materials industry has been catalyzed by a growing demand for eco-friendly structures with low greenhouse gas emissions and reduced operational and maintenance costs. Most construction firms across the world are increasingly looking for ways to realize their sustainability goals. This further stimulates the demand for green building materials.
The use of low volatile organic compound (VOC) paints, sealants and adhesives is increasingly gaining momentum as a sustainable practice to expedite green construction projects. Low-emissivity (Low-E) windows coated with thin layers of tin dioxide help absorb UV rays, blocking heat without limiting light. On the other hand, Ferrock, created with steel dust or ferrous rock, is becoming the preferred greener choice over conventional concrete for modern builders. Additionally, organic, compostable Mycelium or mushroom-based building material is proving to be sturdy as it withstands extreme temperatures.
As such, the technological progressions in the construction arena are opening up a universe of new possibilities for green building materials providers. This implies that building agencies looking for companies providing sustainable building materials have to choose from a plethora of options.
