The priority of sustainable, post-fossil carbon society is to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and greenhouse gases. In the context of achievement of the transition towards global sustainable development, civil engineering strategy must ensure the resource and energy efficient technologies with consumption of renewable resources and the cleaner production of building materials. The main aim of this Special Issue, "Sustainable Building Materials" in Buildings is to provide a platform for the discussion of the major research challenges and achievements on development of advanced building materials for passive and zero-energy buildings and materials for renovation, innovative key building materials, the use of alternative raw materials (construction and demolition waste, industrial waste) in building materials production, life cycle analysis of materials and constructions, the indoor environmental assessment. This Special Issue provides an integrated view of the trends in the development of environmentally friendly materials and solving the problems associated with the achievement of sustainability and ensuring a life quality in buildings.
Prof. Nadezda Stevulova warmly invites authors to submit their papers for potential inclusion in this Special Issue on sustainable building materials.
