As the human population grows steadily worldwide, natural resource consumption in the construction industry is expanding. Depletion of raw materials requires solutions to create building materials by making optimal use of various wastes. The use of various admixtures and different kinds of additives (supplementary cementitious materials (SCM) and nano-sized materials) can help to solve problems related to the volatile properties of building materials created with waste.
The Special Issue "Trends in the Development of Building Materials with Recycled Waste” is focused on favored methods of waste pretreatment and modification, as well as the development of effective design approaches, allowing for the most efficient use of waste as the main raw material in building materials. Eco-efficient building materials and improved carbon-capture solutions are also within the scope of this Special Issue.
