Abstract
The environmental performance of a building used for living or working depends to a large extent on its design and structure, but the total impact has additional influencing factors as well. The role of masonry elements is especially important when taking the entire life cycle of a building into consideration. This paper aims to analyze the environmental impacts of producing and using an alternative masonry element (AME) which is composed of natural cellulose and biodegradable three-component gl...
