heal.abstract
One of the most debated topics in recent years corresponds to the increasing phenomenon of Global Warming, which is directly linked to a sizable amount of the carbon emissions emanated from the building sector. In the last decades, after the future predictions of recognizable scientists, governments around the world denoted their significance to combat the pollutant, by addressing to numerous researchers and organizations to discover aspects of lessening effectively the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. As an initial step for the reduction of the building’s pollutant to the atmosphere, the development of the building envelope by the usage of wood-based materials, in parallel with the participation on forthcoming and revolutionary environmental projects and especially carbon offset schemes, was signified as essential. The greatest challenge of existing governments is the persuading methods concerning the contribution of people to the fundamental race of reducing the CO2 emissions, involving the financial part. Hence, in order for the specific target to be achieved, governments and private organizations worldwide, collaborated to fund carbon offset programs related to energy efficiency interactions, along with the usage of low-carbon materials, concluding to the mitigation of GHG emissions in the building sector. However, for the accurate detection of the carbon emissions, and the appropriate selection of construction materials concerning the building envelope, the application of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is compulsory. Predominantly, the current dissertation supervises one case study, focusing on the building construction materials, along with the examination of the most impactful environmental categories, by the usage of an LCA software, the so-called OpenLCA. In addition, the construction materials were assessed in all the life cycle phases and illustrated in diagrams.
