Noise Control

Marco Caniato

Free University of Bozen-Bolzano

Dr. Caniato is an environmental engineer with a specialty in designing and monitoring environmental, architectural, and building acoustics. In collaboration with the University of Trieste, Dr. Caniato has invented and patented an extract from agar with plastic powders, derived from marine plastic waste, effective as thermal and acoustic insulation for industrial, and maritime applications. This biopolymer has proven to be promising in the battle against the dispersion of microplastics in the environment.

About the book

The quest to ensure noise control in buildings as well as industrial, automotive, and outdoor environments is nowadays an active challenge. New materials, a new combination of layers, new numerical models, tools, and studies can help to find new and innovative solutions to guarantee human well-being and noise pollution protection. Anyway, noise is mostly produced by human activities and thus needs to be controlled. It is known that prolonged exposure to high noise levels can cause annoyance and disturbance to receivers, which then can suffer even for a lifetime period. For these reasons, researchers, scientist, and practitioners try their best to support everyday life with robust and reliable solutions as well as new approaches to manage noise control issues.

In this light, this book intends to represent a comprehensive collection of the most important evidence-based works and developments which directly deal with the presented issues, focused on human well-being as the final aim.
