This special issue focuses on the utilization of industrial solid wastes to enhance the sustainability of concrete. Topics that will be covered include but are not limited to waste characterization, performance evaluation, cleaner production, life cycle assessment, and microstructure analysis. Whether as an additive or a replacement for the aggregates or binder, the incorporation of waste materials in concrete serves to reduce the adverse environmental impact associated with the construction industry and promote sustainable construction and the concept of a circular economy.
