Book Description :

This book provides a compendium of material properties, demonstrates several successful examples of bio-based materials’ application in building facades, and offers ideas for new designs and novel solutions. It features a state-of-the-art review, addresses the latest trends in material selection, assembling systems, and innovative functions of facades in detail. Selected case studies on buildings from diverse locations are subsequently presented to demonstrate the successful implementation of various biomaterial solutions, which defines unique architectural styles and building functions. The structures, morphologies and aesthetic impressions related to bio-based building facades are discussed from the perspective of art and innovation; essential factors influencing the performance of materials with respect to functionality and safety are also presented. Special emphasis is placed on assessing the performance of a given facade throughout the service life of a building, and after its end. The book not only provides an excellent source of technical and scientific information, but also contributes to public awareness by demonstrating the benefits to be gained from the proper use of bio-based materials in facades. As such, it will appeal to a broad audience including architects, engineers, designers and building contractors.

Book Description :

As new promising alternatives, novel bio-based materials are already developed to apply in construction sectors due to biodegradability, low toxicity, sustainability, renewability, and acceptable general properties. However, their flammability and need to guarantee a low fire risk in the constructions is also an essential factor to restrict their further application. This thesis focused on investigation of bio-based material with good flame-retardant performance and corresponding flame-retardant mechanism. The detailed investigation was developed by following stages: synthesis of bio-based flame retardant and its application in PLA; effect of bio-based flame retardant on the fire resistance and other properties of natural fiber reinforced PLA. Finally, the smouldering and combustion performances of the bio-based thermal insulation material made from natural fiber were studied as well.1) On basis of bio-based concept, PA and THAM were selected as raw material to synthesize a novel flame retardant and the chemical structure was confirmed via some characterizations. Afterwards, this synthetic product PA-THAM was employed as an efficient flame retardant to PLA by melt mixing. This binary system showed an improvement in flame retardancy, which was achieved by a combination of heat transfer effect, slight dilution and barrier action. For example, only 3 wt% loading of PA-THAM imparted PLA-based biocomposite LOI value of 25.8% and UL 94 V-0 level, as well as a significant self-extinguishing ability was observed. Besides, the molten viscosity of biocomposite also demonstrated more reduction compared with neat PLA due to the lubrication of PA-THAM, while there was little change in the mechanical properties. 2) PA-THAM and corn pith cellulose (OCC) were combined via in-situ modification and used to prepare a PLA-based biocomposite. After OCC was modified by PA-THAM successfully, which was proved by SEM/ EDS, FTIR, and TGA, the effect of PA-THAM on thermal stability and fire behaviors of PLA-based composite were also investigated accordingly. 5 phr addition of PA-THAM enabled this natural fiber reinforced polymer biocomposite (NPC) to illustrate a 50 °C higher temperature at maximum degradation rate than control sample without additive, and an improvement was also obtained in flame retardant properties with an increase of LOI value, a reduction of PHRR, and more char residue. The predominant flame-retardant mechanism focused on the synergistic effect of PA-THAM and OCC that occurred in condensed phase. Besides, the same level introduction of PA-THAM improved the interfacial affinity between PLA and OCC that maintained good mechanical properties as well.3) A bio-based thermal insulation material was made from corn pith cellulose, alginate, and bio-efficient flame retardants. After introducing these bio-based additives, the smouldering and flaming combustion behaviors were improved significantly. Compared with the reference sample, thermal insulation particleboard with 8 wt% loading of a mixture of PA-THAM and a sodium borate salt (DOT) increased the initial temperature of smoldering ignition by 70 oC, and meanwhile, the value of PHRR in flaming combustion decreased by 25.5%. Furthermore, the thermal conductivity was hardly affected, while the temperature at which the maximum thermal degradation occured increased. The correlative flame retardant mechanism was attributed to a synergistic effect from both flame retardants, which promoted a formation of more stable charring layer at initial stage.

Book Description :

The production of bio-based chemicals is not new. Current global bio-based chemical is estimated to be around 50 million tonnes. From a technical point of view, almost all industrial materials made from fossil resources could be substituted by their bio-based counterparts. However, the cost of bio-based production in many cases exceeds the cost of petrochemical production. Also, new products must be proven to perform at least as good as the petrochemical equivalent they are substituting and to have a lower environmental impact. The low price of crude oil acted as a barrier to bio-based commodity chemical production and producers focussed on the specific attributes of bio-based chemicals such as their complex structure to justify production costs. Also, the consumer demand for environmentally friendly products, population growth and limited supplies of non-renewable resources have now opened new windows of opportunity for bio-based chemicals and polymers. The industry is increasingly viewing chemical production from renewable resources as an attractive area for investment. Improvements in Bio-Based Building Blocks Production Through Process Intensification and Sustainability Concepts outlines the application of process intensification techniques which allow the generation of clean, efficient and economical processes for bio-based chemical blocks production. Includes synthesis and process design strategies to obtain intensified processes Describes the multi-objective optimization applied to the production of bio-based building blocks Presents the controllability of processes where the production of bio-based building blocks is involved Provides examples using aspen and MATLAB Introduces some sustainable indexes to evaluate production processes Presents process intensification techniques to improve performance in productive processes Describes the general procedure of bio-based building blocks production

Book Description :

The market for durable products using modified wood has increased substantially during the last few years. This is partly because of the restriction on the use of toxic preservatives due to environmental concerns, and to lower maintenance cost and time. Furthermore, as sustainability becomes a greater concern, the environmental impact of construction and interior materials is factored in planning by considering the whole life cycle and embodied energy of the materials used. Wood is modified to improve its intrinsic properties, enhance the range of applications of timber, and to acquire the form and functionality desired by engineers without calling the environmental friendliness into question. Wood modification processes are at various stages of development, and the challenges faced in scaling up to industrial applications differ. The aim of this book is to put together the key elements of the changes of wood constituents and the related changes in wood properties of modified wood. Further, a selection of the principal technologies implemented in wood modification are presented. This work is intended for researchers, professionals of timber construction, as well as students studying the science of materials, civil engineering and architecture. This work is not exhaustive, but intends to deliver an outline of the scientific disciplines necessary to apprehend the technologies of wood modification and its behavior during treatment, as well as during its use.
