I would like to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue of the open-access journal Buildings that will be dedicated to “Materials in Sustainable Buildings”. The concept of sustainable building is to reduce environmental load and energy consumption, select green building materials and reduce the generation of building solid wastes, and use advanced technology and equipment to recycle and reuse building solid wastes. Accurately understanding the research mechanism of solid waste utilization and the mechanical properties of green building materials, realizing resource utilization, improving the utilization rate of natural resources, and reducing environmental pollution are very important for the development of sustainable buildings.
This Special Issue aims to collect the latest research results on green building materials and solid waste utilization. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Solid waste resource utilization;
- Research progress of green building materials;
- Research on low carbon construction technology innovation;
- Development trend of 3D printing technology;
- Prospect of building materials for carbon reduction and carbon sequestration;
- Research and application progress of artificial materials.

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 1800 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.
