Yi Zheng, an associate professor of mechanical and industrial engineering at Northeastern University in Boston, won a National Science Foundation CAREER Award last year for inventing a roofing material that keeps buildings cool from dawn to dusk without air conditioning.

Zheng’s Self-Cooling Paper sucks up the heat in buildings and blocks sun rays from getting in, thereby keeping temperatures inside homes down to even 10 degrees Fahrenheit (6°C) all day. The Cooling Paper is also 100% recyclable, thus an important invention for the global construction industry to help combat climate change.
