Abstract Submission Deadline 16 October 2022
Manuscript Submission Deadline 15 December 2022

In the fight against climate change, transforming industrial by-products (specifically construction binder by-products) and human-based waste into materials used for construction is an attractive way of reducing emissions and obtaining resources that can be used in various structures such as roads, bridges, buildings, and other infrastructural projects.



Varying degrees of these by-products can be mixed with cement, sand, tar, granulates, and clay to make useful green construction materials such as blended cement, substituted cement, mortar composites, grout composites, bitumen composites, brick composites, geopolymer composites, and more.



The eco-friendly materials can be used as structural elements, finishing materials, or as settlement, making them useful construction materials due to their wide range of applications.



The goal of this special issue is to present the current state of the design, methodology, processing, and energy demands of the technologies used in transforming construction binder by-products into construction materials, with the aim of making them more efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly.



The scope of this collection includes but is not limited to:

• Review, analysis, and characterization of transforming industrial by-products into construction materials

• Evaluation of the methodologies used for transforming by-products into construction materials

• Transformation of non-Portland cement binders, Portland cement binders, and construction binders with fiber by-products into useful construction materials

• Nanotechnology for transforming industrial by-products into construction materials

Keywords: Design, Process, Material, Energy, Evaluation, By-product in various industry, Manufacturing of materials, Nanomaterials, Usage of fiber in material Lightweight materials, Structural materials, Natural materials, Sustainable construction materials, Reuse


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
