Special Issue Information
Our world is facing critical environmental challenges due to the extensive release of CO2, and the production and use of concrete contribute a significant portion of these carbon emissions. Meanwhile, the annual production of concrete consumes 4–6 billion tonnes of cement and generates 8% of global CO2 emissions, making construction a carbon-intensive industry. Carbon is mainly produced from the combustion of fossil fuels, and these will remain dominant energy sources for the foreseeable future. To mitigate global warming and the associated environmental changes, reducing the CO2 released by construction and building materials has attracted significant interest.
This Special Issue aims to discuss the new advanced accelerated carbonation technologies to reduce the carbon footprint of construction and building materials, which also have good performance. Areas to be covered in this Research Topic may include, but are not limited to:
- Low-carbon concrete.
- Carbon curing.
- Low-carbon cement.
- Carbonation mineralization materials.
- Carbonation of recycled wastes (recycled concrete, IBA, steel slag, etc.).
- Biological carbonation mineralization.
- Life cycle assessment (LCA).
- Theory and simulations on carbonation technologies.
- Other accelerated carbonation technologies.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Buildings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
