MENA – Tectonic Shifts Towards Green Building and Constructions

Building and constructions are undergoing tectonic shifts in MENA region especially in the GCC countries. To accelerate cutting down energy consumption and waste production from building and construction, the MENA region puts strict rules for supporting green technologies. Building and construction technology in the MENA region are one of the major sectors with trillion US-dollar revenues. Such shifts will require major investments for replacing the current production of unfriendly OPC-cement with more green cement. Also, building technologies that require huge consumption of energy for operation and service need to be up-dated. Technologies for huge and enormous energy and waste saving are already available but additional and dedicated work what regards adaptation and implementation would be needed.
