Title: Efficiency of nanotechnologies in the high performance of buildings
Biography: Consiglia Mocerino
New research in the field of technological innovation, with nanotechnologies and nano-structured eco-active materials, smart materials that change according to meteorological and atmospheric flows, with new adaptive and smart models, etc. identify new processes in the efficient building of infrastructures in cities and territories, with low environmental impact and reduction of CO2. Objectives of innovation and sustainability with use of functional materials that mainly focus on optical, magnetic, electrical properties, such as those of semiconductor, magnetic materials, etc. with the dematerialized technologies and high performance in the building and use of sustainable materials with high solar transmittance, lightness, air quality and low thermal conductivity. So methodologies with the application of efficient nanostructured materials including silica aerogels, the doped materials by epoxy resins with carbon nanotubes (CNT), much stronger than steel, intelligent bio phase change materials (PCM), bioplastics, etc. Application of advanced materials such as aerographite, based on carbon nanotubes, with characteristics of resilience, strength, flexibility and durability, aimed at different uses in the building sector of the construction industry, for super-light energy accumulators, for purification devices of air and water. Distinguishing materials by environmental quality since recyclable, renewable and biodegradable, linked to chemical/physical, mechanical and technological, while denouncing criticality and application limits for the protection of human health. High performance requirements of architectural beauty even through transparency and surface gloss, with nanostructured materials ecoactive high performance, glassy and light-sensitive materials, iridescent and translucent colors, from thermal comfort with use of minimum thickness. The challenge is in the application of advanced materials in the emerging areas of digital fabrication for environmental sustainability and in the efficient, intelligent and sustainable building sector.
