Special Issue Information
The built environment is the most energy-intensive sector of the economy. Moreover, the construction industry is the most responsible one worldwide for depleting natural resources. Portland cement production alone is currently the third largest source of global CO2 anthropogenic emissions. With the advent of climate change threats to ecosystems, biodiversity, and human life, research on energy-efficient buildings as well as sustainable and eco-efficient construction materials has become of paramount importance. This Special Issue seeks robust research studies on eco-efficient and carbon-neutral construction materials, building materials with high amounts of recycled content, the beneficiation of by-products and waste materials in construction, green construction practices, sustainable construction materials with enhanced mechanical, durability, and thermal performance, and related innovative research centered on the sustainability of building construction. Both experimental and modeling studies will be considered. Submitted studies shall clearly identify their novelty and contribution to the state of the art.
