Gypsum is a soft sulfate mineral that occurs naturally and is primarily composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate (chemical formula CaSO42H2O). Drywall is also known as sheetrock, wallboard, or plasterboard. This powder is then used in a variety of agricultural, industrial, and building applications.

Gypsum is a soft sulfate mineral that occurs naturally and is mostly made of calcium sulfate dihydrate (chemical formula CaSO42H2O). Gypsum is a soft mineral that appears white or gray and is composed of many little transparent crystals.
Gypsum deposits are typically found as silt in areas that were previously flooded. The mined gypsum is dried and heated before being crushed and processed into a powder. This powder is then used in a variety of agricultural, industrial, and building applications.
When heat is applied to rock gypsum, the water molecules trapped inside it are released, yielding anhydrous gypsum.
Gypsum anhydrous is a fine, dry powder. It is widely mined and used as a fertilizer, as well as the primary component in the production of several types of blackboard chalk, sidewalk chalk, cement, and drywall.
Green Building in India
Green building (also known as green construction or sustainable building) refers to both a structure and the application of environmentally responsible and resource-efficient processes throughout the life-cycle of a building: from planning to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition.
At all project stages, the contractor, architects, engineers, and client must work together closely. Green Building extends and supplements traditional building design principles such as economy, usability, durability, and comfort.
Green building also refers to conserving resources to the greatest extent possible, including energy conservation, land conservation, water conservation, material conservation, and so on, throughout the building’s life cycle, protecting the environment and reducing pollution, providing people with healthy, comfortable, and efficient use of space, and living in harmony with nature.
Low consumption, high efficiency, economy, environmental protection, integration, and optimization are the primary goals of green building technology. The Indian Green Construction Council (IGBC) leads the country’s green building movement.
The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) established the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) in 2001. The council is headquartered in Hyderabad in the CII-Sohrabji Green Business Centre, India’s first Platinum-rated green building and a Net Zero Energy facility. The council’s mission is to create a “Sustainable Built Environment for All.”
The IGBC is India’s leading organisation for green building certification and related services. IGBC-rated green projects fit into one of the following categories (in descending order): Silver, Gold, and Platinum certifications are available.
