Special Issue "Advances in Sustainable and Eco-Efficient Construction Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2022.
Interests: construction materials; sustainability; machine learning; deep learning
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Materials: Advanced Cement and Concrete Composites
Topical Collection in Sustainability: Advanced Materials, Systems and Policies for Achieving Sustainability Goals in Construction
Portland cement production alone is currently the third largest source of global CO2 anthropogenic emissions. The construction industry at large is the most responsible worldwide for depleting natural resources. Moreover, the built environment is the most energy-intensive sector of the economy. With the advent of climate change threats to ecosystems, biodiversity, and human life, research on sustainable and eco-efficient construction materials has become of paramount importance. This Special Issue seeks robust research studies on carbon-neutral construction materials, building materials with high recycled content, beneficiation of by-products and waste materials in construction, green construction practice, sustainable construction materials with enhanced mechanical, durability, and thermal performance, and related innovative research centered on the sustainability of construction materials. Both experimental and modeling studies will be considered. However, such studies shall clearly identify the novelty and contribution to the state-of-the-art. Redundant studies that report on issues already covered in the open literature will not be considered.

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. 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 1900 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.
