Special Issue "Recycled Materials for Concrete and Other Composites"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2021.
Interests: materials engineering; materials chemistry; composites; use of recycled materials and byproduct in concrete; recycled materials for construction; sustainable structures and materials; ecological materials and technologies
The Special Issue on "Recycled Materials for Concrete and Other Composites" focuses on the preparation and characterization of composites containing recycled materials that should find use in specific engineering applications, especially in the building industry. Using materials from recycling is a key part of decreasing present-day waste. In composites, the materials used are mainly, but not only, recycled materials, such as plastics, steel and other metals, glass, ceramics, and industrial wastes. Using recycled materials to synthesize composite materials saves natural resources and has a positive influence on environmental protection. Unfortunately, composite material synthesis produces waste, byproducts, and recycled materials that require research to deal with, creating challenges for materials engineers and chemists. For this reason, this Special Issue is an excellent opportunity to present and publish the latest research in the field of composite material synthesis, in particular cement-based composites and their physicochemical and mechanical properties.

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 papers will be 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
