Evaluation of recycling and reuse of building materials using the emergy analysis method Evaluation of recycling and reuse of building materials using the emergy analysis method by Buranakarn, Vorasun, Publication date GENERIC RAW BOOK ZIP download. download 1 . Emergy definitions. By definition, emergy is the available energy of one kind that has been used up directly and indirectly to make a product or service ().It may also be considered as a measure of the entropy that has been produced over the transformation process (Lloyd and Pagel, ).The term emergy was first introduced in as the “memory of energy” (Scienceman, ).Cited by: Evaluation of recycling and reuse of building materials using the emergy analysis method. University of Florida, PhD thesis; Guinée JB, Huppes G, Heijungs R. Developing an LCA guide for. Highlights The paper presents the results of an emergy evaluation of a low-energy building (LEB) in which a percentage of input materials are from recycled sources. The corresponding impacts on the emergy yield ratio (EYR) and emergy loading ratio (ELR) are studied. The evaluation provides values for the selected ratios based on different recycle times. Results indicated that values of the Cited by:
Evaluation of Recycling & Reuse of Building materials from Demolition: Cost feasibility and environmental impact assessment A case study of Volvo Office building in Lundby, Gothenburg Masters of Science Thesis in the Master’s Degree Program Infrastructure and Environmental Engineering MAYA SHEIDAEI EMMANUEL SERWANJAAuthor: Emmanuel Serwanja, Maya Sheidaei. In the building sector, embodied energy of the building materials and energy consumption and the associated emissions over the period of use were evaluated using the LCA method .While almost all of the embodied energy is accumulated during the construction phase of the building, energy used for operating the building, i.e., electricity, chilled water, water, steam, wastewater treatment, etc Cited by: 1.

A separate and distinct field of building science is emerging as increasingly sophisticated instruments are linked to the growing ability and decreasing costs of computer analysis. This book describes one segment of a new building science-that of building diagnosis.
