Vorks Energy to provide solar rooftop solution to Delhi and NCR Schools
Vorks Energy has recently signed agreements with number of schools in Delhi and NCR region to provide solar roof top solution. The schools will run completely on solar energy during the day and will use energy from battery bank when sun is not available. The system is ideal for schools and colleges, since majority of usage for electricity is during school working hours which are typically around 8 to 9 hours. This typical usage can easily be provided using solar energy generated from PV modules. According to Mr. Ashish Kumar, Executive Director, Vorks Energy, Schools are ideal fit for solar energy because of their operation time and limited budgets. The investment in solar roof top solution can easily be recovered by a school in 5 years. Other benefits include non reliance on traditional diesel generators/ other expensive power backup devices like invertors, etc. and huge governmental subsidy.

We shall endeavor to speak in one voice and work towards empowering our respective members to improve the Bottom Lines of their business. Adding to this Mr. Abdur Ravoof President NAR-INDIA said Today we have crossed one more milestone by signing a bi-lateral agreement with CREDAI. This will create an opportunity to work closely with CREDAI and it will also benefit our members.

Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC): An Innovative Building Material for Securing Sustainable Future
utoclaved Aerated concrete (AAC), is a revolutionary material offering an unique combination of high durability and strength, light weight, unprecedented buildability and superior ecological green features. AAC is a high-quality, load-bearing and extremely well insulating building material. AAC is a long proven material. It has successfully been used in Europe since early last century and is now among the mostly used wall building materials in Europe with rapidly growing market shares in Asia, the Middle East and America. In India it has also started to gain acceptance. AAC is produced in a variety of forms from blocks, to structural floor and wall panels. It is possible to construct virtually an entire house from autoclaved aerated concrete, including walls, floors. Building with AAC is simple and efficient. The material is soft enough to be cut easily onsite with hand tools or bandsaws. Construction is fast, since the blocks and panels are lightweight, yet large and easy to assemble. AAC is credited by LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and the USGBC (United States Green Building Council) as an green alternative to traditional construction materials. Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) also recommends its use in india.

AAC is credited by LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and USGBC (US Green Building Council) as an green alternative to traditional construction materials. Indian Green Building Council (IGBC)also recommends its use in India.

Production mostly AAC actually consists

of air, around 80%. AAC is made from naturally existing materials. It is manufactured by combining silica (either in the form of sand, or recycled fly ash), cement, lime, water, and an expansion agent - aluminum powder, and pouring it into a mold. With respect to structurally reinforced AAC

products like lintels or roof panels, steel rebar or mesh is also placed in the mold. Once added to the concrete, the aluminum powder reacts with the silica, resulting in the formation of millions of microscopic hydrogen bubbles. The hydrogen bubbles cause the concrete to expand to roughly five times its original volume. The hydrogen subsequently evaporates, leaving a highly closed-cell aerated concrete. The now aerated concrete is cut into blocks or panels which are then steam and pressure-cured in an autoclave. Waste generated during production is recycled back into the manufacturing process. AAC Block is compatible with sustainable building practices since it requires fewer raw

materials to produce and is completely non-toxic.

ied shallow underground. Lightweight AAC is lightweight. Depending on the exact product, AAC can weight as little as one-fifth the weight of standard concrete and clay bricks which results in lower transportation costs, faster workflow, lower material handling costs, and fewer work-related injuries. AAC is a ready to build material, requiring no on site curing time. Workability Unlimited workability. AAC can be sawn, drilled, nailed, screwed and milled with common hand tools. Much like wood, AAC openings are easily and accurately cut. Field adjustments can be made easily. Chases for wiring and outlets

Advantages Environmentally

Friendly Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) is an environmentally friendly product, qualifies as a green building material, starting at manufacturing, to construction, through demolition and recycling. It is an inert material that does not off gas or release CFCs. All waste material during manufacturing, such as trimmings, quality rejected units etc. is recycled and re-processed, resulting in zero waste. Waste material on individual sites need not go to the sanitary landfill as it can be crushed and safely used as fill, or bur-


extraordinary thermal insulating qualities. Heating and air-conditioning can be major cost factors in the operating expenditures of any type of building. Because of its unique physical structure, AAC provides much greater thermal insulation than conventional masonry. Pest Resistance AAC is impervious to attack by insects and termites. There are no voids for insects/pests to make homes. Termites or insects will not attack AAC Concrete products, nor can AAC be penetrated by termites or insects. This feature reduces the need for pesticides while maintaining maximum protection against damage to the building and contents. Acoustic Insulation AAC has been shown to provide better sound insulation and absorption than any other solid building material under comparable conditions. This makes it ideal for construction projects that require a high level of acoustic insulation, such as apartments, hotels and entertainment facilities. Since its porous internal structure is comprised of 6070% air, the material absorbs much more sound than conventional concrete, effectively reducing sound wave transmission. Walls, floors and roofs constructed with AAC reduce the transmission of sound 7 db greater than other building material of the same weight.

can easily be accomplished precisely. The dimensionally accurate panels are finished with a very thin mortar joint, producing a surface that requires minimum rendering. Water Resistant AAC possesses excellent structural integrity, helping it to resist moisture penetration, whether caused by wind-driven rain or standing water. Additional weather and moisture resistance is achieved with a final surface treatment such as stucco, plaster and paint, or cladding such as bricks and/ or other exterior materials. AAC has excellent structural integrity which resists high winds and violent storms AAC products are very durable and will not degrade under normal climatic conditions. They have outstanding durability characteristics over traditional materials relative to humidity, freeze/thaw cycles and chemical attack. Fire Resistant Autoclaved aerated concrete provides the highest security against fire and meets the most stringent fire safety requirements. Due to its purely mineral composition, AAC is classified as a non-combustible building material. It is both resistant to fire up to 1200 C and, unlike other construction materials, heat-resistant. Therefore AAC can be used as a fire wall to prevent fire from spreading, thereby protecting lives and economic assets. In principle a fire wall should last up to four hours, but tests have shown that an 150 mm thick AAC fire wall can resist at least for six hours. In a real blaze, an AAC fire wall even survived intact for 120 hours. Besides being fire and heat resistant, AAC does not give off any smoke or toxic gases. Thermal Insulation Inherent insulation. AAC has

that of aggregate concrete and six times better than clay brick. Consequently, buildings made of AAC are warm in winter and cool in summer. With buildings consuming 40% of global energy, greater use of AAC, both in construction and renovation, offers an immediate solution to cutting the energy consumption of residential and non-residential buildings across the globe. AACs excellent inherent thermal insulation properties not only reduce the need for heating and cooling, thereby cutting carbon dioxide emissions and combating climate change, but also make the use of additional insulation materials unnecessary. AAC is energy-efficient over its whole life cycle. Its production requires less energy than other construction materials and its light weight saves energy in transportation. And because of the considerable thermal mass AAC has the ability to store and release energy over time.

outside temperatures cannot damage AAC.

is extremely strong and durable despite its light weight. AACs solidity comes from the calcium silicate that encloses its millions of air pores and from the curing process in a pressurised steam chamber (autoclave). Its excellent mechanical properties make it the construction material of choice for earthquake zones. AACs light weight ensures that the foundations of a building are lightly loaded, yet it is strong enough to bear several floors. It retains its properties for the entire life of a building. AAC resists wind, rain and storm and does not decay or rot. In general, changing

are cost competitive. In terms of material costs, AAC is not a low-priced system but the cost considerations in building economics must include not only the cost of the material,but other influential direct and indirect variables. Costs of transportation, energy efficiency, fire protection, maintenance, durability, and environmental implications of the materials being used must also be considered. AAC provides speed of construction which results in significant labour and time savings. The time and hence the cost is greatly reduced by using ACC. Most importantly structures built with AAC weighs at least 60 percent less than one built with other masonary or concrete materials. This translates into significant material savings. The transportation costs of AAC is also low because of its lightweight. The AAC building owner may see a significant reduction of maintenance and energy (heating and cooling) costs as well as an increase in overall comfort and safety.

Conclusion AAC has had a long, success-

ful history as a sustainable building material long before anyone had ever heard of green buildings. Due to its relatively low consumption of readily available raw materials, excellent durability, energy efficiency, relative cost effectiveness, and ability to be recycled, AAC is the superhero of building materials and very well deserving of its green designation.
