Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Sustainability is a recent thrust in many areas of engineering and science. Sustainable built environment is crucial to make our planet greener and a better place for the future generation. In this context, sustainable construction materials would play a significant role for the sustainable development of built environment comprising buildings and civil infrastructure, such as roads, bridges, and tunnels. This special issue of Sustainability is on “Sustainable Construction Materials”. It belongs to the section “Sustainable Engineering and Science” of Sustainability. You are humbly requested to contribute high-quality research or review articles to this special issue, emphasizing sustainability of building or infrastructure materials, utilization of recycled and industrial or agro waste materials, use of renewable materials, durability and service life of materials, sustainability assessment methods for materials, energy savings associated with application of materials, costs versus benefits of materials, and environmental protection in relation with fabrication and use of materials. This special issue will also welcome papers on new or emerging sustainable construction materials. Papers will be selected for this special issue through a meticulous peer review procedure.
