TPO: Thermoplastic Polyolefin

White materials are highly reflective of the sun's radiant heat and may have a high thermal emittance value (a measure of how much absorbed radiant energy is given off into the atmosphere). As much as 40% of a city's waterproof surfaces are composed of roof area that is often black. That means more cooling energy is needed for occupied spaces in urban areas because on a 90° degrees day a white roof can be up to 50° degrees cooler than a black roof. That results in a lower rate of air pollution from the reduced production of ozone.

Environmental Benefits of White TPO

TPO roofing systems are the most environmentally friendly of the single-ply systems. White reflective surface saves energy.
Chemical make-up is well suited for eventual recycling.
Excellent re-roof solution that may be able to take advantage of existing roof insulation.
They produce no dioxins or chlorine. Membranes come in varying thicknesses to meet your specific requirements and are available in varying roll widths.
Reduce energy use from air conditioning.
TPO traditionally has a white 'reflective surface' which reduces cooling costs.

Smart Cities

Smart technology and the IoT is fundamentally changing how we work, how organizations operate, and how we experience places. Smart Cities are evolvable places that integrate intelligent design, multiple data inputs and previously disparate systems and aggregate these into a cloud of useful information. When harnessed, this actionable intelligence allows smart owners and occupants to create more engaging and effective built environments.
