This Special Issue of "Research and Development of Building Materials Based on Industrial Waste" is focused on the preparation and description of the properties of new building materials on the basis of industrial waste to be used in practice in civil engineering. The use of these waste materials in the form of filler or as a partial replacement of the binder in the design of new building composites is a key tool for updating the policy concerning secondary raw materials for different developed countries, the objective of which is to increase the self-sufficiency in raw materials by replacing primary sources with secondary raw materials (treated industrial waste). The secondary raw materials used for the research and development of new building materials include blast furnace granulated slag, steel slag, fly ash, recycled rubber, recycled glass, recycled plastic, etc. The use of these secondary raw materials based on industrial waste in the design of new sustainable building materials is in line with the sustainable development of society, leading to the protection of the environment and to the conservation of natural depletable resources. The research and development of new building materials based on industrial waste is a very difficult process that brings new challenges for scientists and research teams, both in Europe and from a global point of view.
For this reason, this Special Issue is an excellent opportunity to present and publish the latest research findings in the field of building materials prepared on the basis of industrial waste, especially cement composites and their properties (physical, mechanical, deformable, durability, structure, etc.).

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. Materials 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 2600 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.
