A couple living in Atlanta want a house that's free of the chemical pollutants common in standard construction. They consider using autoclaved aerated concrete blocks for the walls, but soon find there are doubters aplenty.
Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC): Will the U.S. Ever Lighten Up?
autoclaved aerated concrete Improved thermal efficiency reduces the heating and cooling load in buildings. Porous structure allows for superior fire resistance. Workability allows accurate cutting, which minimizes the generation of solid waste during use. Resource efficiency gives it lower environmental impact in all phases of its life cycle, from processing of raw materials to the disposal of waste.
