Green building

Also known as sustainable building or environmental building, green building is the practice of increasing the efficiency with which buildings and their sites use and harvest energy, water, and materials, and reducing the impacts of buildings on human health and the environment, through better site planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal—the complete building life cycle.

Conducted by 'Development of Polyolefin-based Heat Absorbers for Effective Energy Management in Bioclimatic Buildings' the project has been in progress for four years.
Sobolciak continues: "The sun is the most common source of energy for energetic requirements in bioclimatic buildings.
In particular, the development of polyolefin based plastic heat absorbers for energy management in bioclimatic buildings; and the development of plasma and other surface treatment methods to improve adhesion of polyethylene packaging resins are evidence of the successes of the research collaboration between the two institutions.
The artificial intelligence techniques are used both in conventional buildings control systems and also in bioclimatic buildings. For the subsystems control in intelligent buildings (Lopez L et al 2004) has been developed optimized intelligent control systems by including a series of evolutional algorithms.
