Abstract
Green building technology refers to structures that are environmental friendly and resource-efficient throughout a building’s service life, from design to construction. Green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact on the natural environment by: 1) efficiently using energy, water, and other resources; 2) reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation. This article discusses the green concrete’s application in the green building movement.
