Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The increasingly severe situation around ecological deterioration, climate change, and resource exhaustion is a constant reminder of the importance of sustainable development. As one of the most consumed and diverse materials, building materials have led to excessive ecological, economic, and social costs in raw materials extraction, manufacture, and disposal. Throughout history, there have been development trends in building materials, which have progressed from natural to artificial; biodegradable to perdurable; and single to composite material. At this moment in time, we urgently need to make sustainability the next target for building materials. This Special Issue is devoted to sharing and presenting creative works on advances in sustainable building materials, including but not limited to materials design, hazard-free treatment, waste management, carbon-neutral technology, environmental impact assessment, etc. We sincerely invite you to submit your investigation outcomes in the form of research articles and reviews.
