Sustainable Building Materials and Technologies

Description

The concept of sustainability aims to satisfy present day needs for housing, working environments, and infrastructure without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs in times to come. In the world of construction, buildings have the capacity to make a major contribution to a more sustainable future for our planet. Sustainable buildings have become vital cornerstones for securing long-term environmental, economic, and social viability.

Sustainable construction involves issues such as the design and management of buildings; materials performance; construction technology and processes; energy and resource efficiency in building, operation, and maintenance; robust products and technologies; long-term monitoring; occupational health and safety and working conditions and also the dissemination of knowledge in related academic, technical, and social contexts.

The main aim of this special issue is to provide a platform for the discussion of the major research challenges and achievements on this topic which includes the results of both industrial research and academic research on development of advanced building materials for passive and zero-energy buildings and materials for renovation, innovative key building materials, and the use of alternative raw materials such as construction and demolition waste, fly ash, and other industrial inorganic waste and organic waste in building materials production. Another two topics focus on the analysis of impact of building products and materials during their life in terms of environmental specifications and on the evaluation of indoor environment in terms of release of pollutants from materials providing guidelines for materials selection in the ecodesign of new buildings and rehabilitation of existing buildings.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced building materials and technologies
  • Innovative integrated solutions to key building materials
  • Energy efficient building materials
  • Utilization of alternative raw materials
  • Life cycle analysis of building materials
  • Technologies and materials for improved indoor air quality
