Abstract
This proposed project will develop a highly modularized green rooftop system that is not only longlasting but also assemble-able/disassemble-able. At roofs' end-of-life, it can be disassembled and_x000D_ 100% recycled. At buildings' end-of-life, if the roof still has enough useable life, it can be disassembled and reused elsewhere. Major environmental benefits of this technology are 1) nothing from this green roofs goes to landfills, 2) much higher building energy efficiency on lighting, water/space heating, airconditioning,_x000D_ etc. Electricity savings will make this proposed rooftop system very affordable. _x000D_ _x000D_ This proposed system can be constructed with new building roofs, or be installed afterwards to extend the lives of existing roofs and save energy simultaneously. We have discussed with multiple building owners and property managers, including operations managers of Fortune 500 companies, about this idea and they are all very interested in it and may be willing to trial this technology after our full function prototypes become available. This technology will out-perform all similar technologies currently exist, and play a major role in todays' $10.9B US green roofing market. It will reduce our nation's dependency on fossil fuels and cut down both criteria air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions to protect our environment.
