Green Technology and Innovation for Civil Engineering

This issue is now closed for submissions.
More articles will be published in the near future.


The concepts of green technology deal with technological researches and studies to reduce the environmental and climate change impact of the unfriendly industries and enterprises and global warming on human health, environmental safety, and eventually the planet Earth. This aim can only be achieved by developing new environmentally friendly, safe, and nontoxic materials, smart monitoring techniques, and their based innovative technologies. The use of green and monitoring technology (clean technology) can reduce the amount of waste and pollution and provide early warming message that is created during production, consumption, and impact of natural disaster. This special issue provides an international forum for scientists, engineers, researchers, technocrats, and academicians for consolidating research activities and findings in all experimental, theoretical, and practical aspects of green science, technology, and engineering into a single and unique reference source. The goals that satisfy developments in green technology field include (1) sustainability: meeting the needs of society in ways that can continue indefinitely into the future without damaging or depleting natural resources. (2) “Cradle to cradle” design: ending the “cradle to grave” cycle of manufactured products, by creating products that can be fully reclaimed or reused. (3) Source reduction: reducing waste and pollution by changing patterns of production and consumption. (4) Innovation: developing alternatives to technologies, whether fossil fuel or chemical intensive agriculture, that have been demonstrated to damage health and the environment. (5) “Safe environmental monitor”: applying digital energy-saving technologies for disaster prevention, caused by climate change, to provide residents with early warning message. (6) Viability: creating a center of economic activity around technologies and products that benefit the environment, speeding their implementation and creating new careers that truly protect the planet. This special issue will be a cross-disciplinary one, publishing fundamental and applied research findings in all disciplines of science and engineering, having connection with green technology. We invite authors to submit original research and review papers related to green technology. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Green energy/renewal energy
  • Green building/infrastructure
  • Assessment and monitoring of building/infrastructure/environmental safety
  • Digital monitoring technologies for civil engineering
  • Green remediation/treatment
