Pollution: The Solution Is In The Green Building

Author : Martina Celegato

This year on the podium of the cleanest cities were ranked the city of Belluno, Verbania and Parma and at the foot of the standings there are Palermo, Catania and Crotone. An alarming situation when one considers that, with the exception of Turin, all urban centers with more than half a million people have worsened their conditions of environmental health. Are placed on top of the worsening fact the four major Italian cities Rome, Milan, Naples and Palermo.
The ranking is based on several metrics, including public transport, waste collection, sewage treatment, pedestrian areas and other elements that denote sensitivity and activities aimed at protecting the environment. Many are in fact the elements that contribute to the ruin of the environmental status of cities. But certainly the largest and most impressive of these has always been that emissions from cars and homes. Just think of the countless car daily driving on our roads and numerous heating and air conditioning throughout the year that put many toxic substances in the air.

Although these consequences seem inevitable solution from the world of construction technology is becoming increasingly popular through several buildings: green building.
It is this type of construction means that emissions are minimized by the isolation inherent in these types of domestic buildings which are mostly made of wood. Just wooden houses are indeed the new frontier for both the building and for the ecology. The wooden houses also rely on their side many advantages that are not insignificant both economically and technologically.
The houses and wooden roofs because they are fast to build, light to carry, well insulated in winter and in summer it is not by chance have been chosen as a symbol of the reconstruction after the earthquake of L'Aquila.

But beyond these practical advantages of the wooden houses are unique and durable alternative that can turn even the simplest home in a warm friendly atmosphere and modern style. And designers of the timber industry has been called the equipment of the new millennium and the only material to triple zero: zero emissions, zero miles and zero garbage. Not only homes but also in sheds and wooden furniture designs that are usually placed as lamps, accessories, beds, wardrobes. And just in design wood can give any home a warmth and intimacy that is characteristic only of this material and no one else.
But the advantages of wood does not end here, because this material has an ease of work unmatched by any other material used for construction those have a devastating effect on the environment in which it is used.
In addition wood is considered the material "preferred" by the Fire Department due to its resistance to high temperatures, especially important when considering developments that have many plants in them as condominiums and public buildings.
