Abstract: The modern-day evolution of technology is heralded as one of the key defining moments in history. The world has grown more interconnected than ever before, anything and everything that happens around the globe is accessible at the touch of a finger on a small handheld. With the rise in technology, traditional goods and services begin to be phased out, smart watches replace the traditional mechanical watches, IoT devices begin replacing manual assessments etc. The rise in the use of these electronic gadgets pose a new issue, which would be on the consequences of the proliferation of such devices that emit electromagnetic waves. Sensitive equipment, especially those of healthcare, military and those that had not change from the design stage since the pre-modernization era, are prone to interferences that affect their capabilities and functions. This multi-functional study investigates a variety of angles with regards to biochar-fortified paint. The fully fortified paint includes Acrylic, Iron Oxide Pigment, Polycarboxylate dispersant and Biochar. The aspects that will be investigate include Electromagnetic Shielding Effectiveness (EM SE), Particulate Matter absorption (PM), Carbon Dioxide absorption (CO2), and Volatile Organic Compound absorption (VOC). These revolve around the tightness of the seal/adhesion to the mortar mixture which will directly impact the diffusion or impaction of such particles into it. The importance of this study lies on whether biochar fortified paint is a suitable combination to help enhance the paint properties and to increase sustainability in the paint sector. Furthermore, in addition, this study will also examine the use of sheep wool as an additional material for enhancing EM SE of cement mortar containing gypsum, biochar and iron salts.
