    (CSR09) Concrete's Role in Reducing Urban Heat Islands

    Member Price: $ 0.00
    Non-Member Price: $ 0.00

    Free Download Concrete Sustainability Reports (CSR) are technical publications that discuss various sustainability related topics. They are intended to provide a summary of complex topics to help design professionals and concrete industry professionals utilize concrete sustainably. CSR09 describes how research shows that on warm summer days, the temperature in large cities can be significantly hotter than surrounding rural areas, mainly due to dark colored roofing and pavements that absorb most of the sunlight that falls on them and heating the surrounding air. This increase in air and surface temperatures results increased energy demand for buildings, increased greenhouse gas emissions, increased air pollution, reduced human health and reduced water quality. Because of concrete's light color and high reflectivity, using concrete for paved surfaces, along with roofing and cladding for buildings, can help reduce urban heat islands. 8 pages.
