Abstract

Environmental sustainability is the primary common goal of any resource processing intervention. It finds a legitimate collaborator in construction technology and innovation, whether consciously adopted to improve eco-friendly energy savings or used passively to reduce the effect of works on the global ecosystem. Research and technical implementation are essential components of the project, often not very tangible but useful in achieving economic results and, above all, higher quality in the relationship with the end user. Biopolymers represent an area with significant development potential because they combine high technical potential with the sustainability factor. Green polyethylene (PE) maintains the same properties, performance, and versatility of application as fossil-based PE, which facilitates its immediate use in the plastics production chain and its recyclability within the same recycling process of traditional PE. Creating temporary modular structures that optimise production times and costs with technologies that exploit environmental sustainability principles represents a valid alternative to usual, expensive and complicated construction systems. By adopting a parametric approach to the prefabrication of components, designers could obtain a more economical, easily customisable, modular, #exible, reversible, adaptable, and demountable solution.
