After a long time work, our pride is the absolutely new SGEM Online eLibrary, available here. The Library is created according the rules of the International databases, with a whole needed information and ability to export the article in BIB format. Try and spread your experience with us.
Till we complete the new library with papers from all the years, you can use this link /Full Old Library/, if papers that you need are not visible yet here.


Barnas, J.
The article presents problems associated with attempts at introducing renewable materials into general use in architecture, with a particular focus on timber. The full implementation of this process will make it possible to significantly lower waste production as a result of the functioning of the contemporary economy. The results of these actions involving the use of new sustainable solution systems in terms of the manner of designing cities and buildings include the use of existing material resources to the maximum possible extent, one that does not result in the production of waste. Newly design environmentally-friendly habitats will be neutral towards the existing ecosystem. Buildings erected using timber are eco-friendly due to the fact that timber procurement and processing does not generate as much carbon dioxide or other pollutants as other traditional construction materials like cement or brick. In addition, the process of building these types of buildings is shorter and consumes less energy when compared to traditional technologies that are based on ceramic materials or concrete derivatives. Materials produced during the dismantlement of timber buildings, such as waste created as a by-product of production processes associated with timber processing, are fit for re-use.
