EPA Grant Number: SU834730
Title: Lightweight Green Roof Systems

A team of students from Drexel University will design a roof system using a combination of light weight materials that can grow and sustain roof vegetation while reducing the heat island effect and harmful water runoff. Currently, most green roof systems are considerably heavier and require structural reinforcement of an existing structure.

Applying a Lightweight Green Roof System to a building can assist in managing storm water runoff, decreasing heat gain, yielding energy savings, and mitigating the heat island effect.

Challenge Area(s): Built Environment, Water
