  • Introduction

    Metallurgical solid wastes have become a rising concern for their huge productions and potential toxicity to environment. Dumping and landfilling is no longer welcome and gradually get prohibited in more and more countries and regions. Regarding their negative environmental impact and available valuable components, eco-friendly transformation into construction materials is a cost-effective approach for the realization of wastes. Because appropriately prepared wastes are usually auxiliary materials to natural resources in construction projects, or even with more excellent performance. Hereby associated research achievements and innovative technologies are becoming more and more important and attractive for researchers and practitioners in the metallurgical, environmental protection and construction industry.

    The aim of this Special Issue of Materials is to attract articles on new findings and innovation technologies for achieving eco-friendly transformation of wastes to construction materials with low environmental load and good performance. We welcome original researches or review articles with a clear application focus in these areas.

    Aims and Scope:

    1. Metallurgical solid waste
    2. Safe treatment and utilization
    3. High performance construction materials
    4. Eco-friendly recycling technologies
    5. Assessment of environmental impact
    6. Prevention of toxic elements release
