A Comparative Study of Energy Consumption and CO2 Emission in Mud and Concrete Construction Systems

Abroo Bashir | Syed Tahir

Abstract: Architecture involves use of various different construction materials that require a unique construction technique. But most of these construction techniques are energy intensive techniques. All the natural resources are depleting which has made it mandatory that we choose materials and construction systems which require less energy for its execution. The extraction of materials and the erection of buildings consume energy and emit carbon dioxide (CO2) that impact negatively on the environment. Therefore, it is necessary to consider energy consumption and CO2 amongst other factors in selecting building materials for use in building projects. Various theories have been proposed and various studies have been done by scientists time and again which shows that Mud construction system is less energy intensive and very effective in different climatic conditions than the brick, cement concrete construction system. The present work is an attempt to analyze the Energy consumption and CO2 of Mud and Cement construction systems by presenting some of those theories/studies and the methodologies adopted and suggested.
