Special Issue Information
In view of the current climate conditions (e.g., global warming), there is an ever-increasing need for an industrial green revolution, including in construction. Fortunately, some sustainable alternatives to traditional concrete have been discovered. Sustainable concrete is a form of eco-friendly concrete that utilizes wastes and recycled or residual materials as raw materials. Compared to conventional concrete, it decreases natural resource consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions without sacrificing its mechanical and durability properties. To date, various concepts and forms of sustainable concrete have been proposed that have the potential to replace conventional concrete in different fields of application. However, most types of sustainable concrete are still in the research and development stage and have not emerged beyond small-scale application. This Special Issue is dedicated to the research of advanced sustainable concrete materials from nano-, micro-, and macro-perspectives, and aims to promote the development and application of sustainable concrete materials. The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Waste utilization in concrete;
- The mechanical properties of sustainable concrete;
- The durability of sustainable concrete;
- Nano-/micro-/macro-materials used for producing sustainable concrete;
- The nano-/micro-/macro-characterization of green concrete;
- The advanced theory and technology of sustainable concrete.

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. Sustainability 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 2200 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.
