Recent Advances of Low-Carbon Cement

The development of low-carbon cement has gained recognition as a strategy for mitigating the carbon footprint of the Portland cement industry, in response to escalating global concerns regarding CO2 emissions from the construction sector. Low-carbon cement supports sustainable construction practices, helps to meet regulatory requirements, and taps into the growing market demand for environmentally friendly products. There are different types of low-cabon cement, such as limestone calcined clay-based cement (LC3), alkali-activated cement/geopolymers, carbonate cement, and belite-ye'elimite-based cement. Therefore, the topics of interest include but are not limited to the following: recent advances in rhelogical properties, setting behaviour, volume stability, mechanical behaviour, and multiscale modelling of low-carbon cements.

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. Applied Sciences 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 2400 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.
