Sustainability in Buildings: New Trends in the Management of Construction and Demolition Waste

Dear Colleagues,

This Topic, "Sustainability in Buildings: New trends in the management of construction and demolition waste", aims to collect works related to the use of new sustainable building materials, new trends in the recycling of materials for their application in construction, and the application of new techniques and measurement processes that favor the development of sustainable construction.

Contributions related to the proposed lines of research and that allow improving the management of construction and demolition waste for its application in the building sector are appreciated. The main idea is to promote the development of new construction materials and new measurement techniques from different perspectives such as sustainability, materials science, measurement techniques, and the development of novel sensors and data collection equipment. However, there is also room for other contributions related to construction and that is in line with the scope of the Sustainable Development Goals included in the 2030 agenda.

Therefore, this Topic can help complement the existing literature on construction and demolition waste management from a multidisciplinary perspective that encourages the exchange of ideas and points of view. For this reason, we encourage all researchers working in areas of knowledge related to construction materials and green buildings to submit their research.

Deadline for abstract submissions: 30 November 2022.
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2023.
