This book presents the current state of knowledge on nanomaterials and their use in buildings, ranging from glazing and vacuum insulation to PCM composites. It also discusses recent applications in organic photovoltaics, photo-bioreactors, bioplastics and foams, making it an exciting read while also providing copious references to current research and applications for those wanting to pursue possible future research directions.Derek Clements-Croome, Emeritus Professor in Architectural Engineering, University of Reading (From the Foreword)Demonstrating how higher energy efficiency in new and existing buildings can help reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, this book details the way in which new technologies, manufacturing processes and products can serve to abate emissions from the energy sector and offer a cost-effective means of improving competitiveness and drive employment.Maximizing reader insights into how nano and biotech materials – such as aerogel based plasters, thermochromic glazings and thermal energy adsorbing glass, amongst others – can provide high energy efficiency performance in buildings, it provides practitioners in the field with an important high-tech tool to tackle key challenges and is essential reading for civil engineers, architects, materials scientists and researchers in the  area of the sustainability of the built environment.

GRANQVIST, born 1946, is currently Senior Professor of Solid State Physics at
the The Ångström Laboratory of Uppsala University in Sweden. Granqvist’s
research covers materials, mostly thin surface coatings, for energy efficiency
and solar energy applications particularly in the built environment. The
variable-transmittance “smart” window is one example, which also forms the
basis of ChromoGenics AB, a company founded by Granqvist and collaborators and
presently employing some 20 persons. He is member of The Royal Swedish Academy
of Sciences and The Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences. In 2015,
Granqvist received the Jan Czochralski Award for his lifetime achievements in
Materials Science.Dr.
VOLODYMYR IVANOV has more than 40 years of teaching and research experience on
Environmental, Industrial, and Construction Microbiology and Biotechnology in
the universities of Europe, Asia, and USA. He is an author of 200 papers,
patents, book chapters and 8 monographies. His textbook “Environmental
Microbiology for Engineers”, Francis & Taylor, 1st (2010) and 2nd (2015)
editions, was adopted for the graduate and post-graduate courses in the
universities. His research experience includes the supervision and
participation in the projects on biotechnologies with biofilms and biogranules,
microbial transformations of iron, biocementation, bioclogging, and
bioremediation of soil, microbiological monitoring of water quality. - Newsletter
