Green and sustainable construction is of the utmost importance for achieving a cleaner environment in the future. Lime as a building material offers numerous ecological benefits, and can be used both in retrofitting and new construction projects. It can be seen as an environmentally friendly material that is safe for building operators and users, in addition to requiring low energy input to produce . Lime-based materials can also be upgraded to improve their green credentials, especially in relation to durability and energy efficiency. Lime is a traditional building material with a long history, which brings a great deal of knowledge about its manufacturing and use. The urgently needed CO2 abetment requires a rethinking of traditional approaches to maintaining continuity where necessary, as in the building conservation sector, while providing modern solutions for contemporary architecture. This Special Issue welcomes research on construction materials based on lime from production to application technologies in a green and sustainable way.

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 2600 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.
