Nanotechnologies are a new solution of many problems of contemporary society, by creating products and processes for more specific uses with less environmental impact throughout their life cycle. The use of new technology such Nanotechnology in the restoration of damaged buildings post-disaster will be a contemporary solution to achieve sustainable development. After the explosion of Port of Beirut in August 4, 2020, it is necessary to search a new technology that restore and retrofit damaged buildings and in the other hand, to achieve the architectural quality, comfort and energy saving, in addition to its impact on energy consumption rates, its economy feasibility, in order to reduce primary energy consumption and greenhouse gases emission in the residential sector. The aim of this study is to establish a new restoration strategy depending on the use of nanomaterials to revive the damaged buildings due to the disasters. The results shows that the integration of Nanotechnology in the restoration and conservation of damaged buildings, we will achieve more efficient and durable built environment through balancing new technology with sustainability.
