Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Atmospheric pollutants
  • Air pollution control engineering
  • Climate change
  • Ecological and human risk assessment
  • Environmental management and policy
  • Environmental impact and risk assessment
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Ecosystem services, biodiversity and natural capital
  • Environmental economics
  • Control and monitoring of pollutants
  • Remediation of polluted soils and water
  • Fate and transport of contaminants
  • Water and wastewater treatment engineering
  • Solid waste treatment

Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a range of papers (original research, review, communication, opinion, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

About the topic:

Built environment is spatially referred to multiple-standing buildings and open space, accompanied by intensive socioeconomic interaction between users, affiliated facilities, and support services. According to Global Status Report 2017, these building and construction industries alone are responsible for 39% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the world, with operational emissions (i.e. heating, cooling, lighting) accounting for 28%. The rapid urbanization would further exacerbate the situation. The concept of green building is therefore important as it is the practice of developing infrastructure and using construction processes that are environmentally friendly and resource-efficient throughout a building's life-cycle from cradle to grave, including, design, raw materials, transportation, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction and the end of life management. By greening buildings through material selection, innovative design, energy efficiency strategies and end of life management could substantially reduce not only the GHG emissions, but other associated environmental impacts throughout the building life cycle. Eco-efficiency analysis, life cycle assessment and multi-criteria analysis tools have been used to find opportunities improving the buildings’ environmental and economic performance. This issue will accept the articles in the following areas:

  • Green building materials
  • Building energy efficiency
  • Modular/pre-fabricated buildings
  • Building management systems
  • Life cycle assessment
  • End of life strategies

Exploring Social Sustainability in the Built Environment

Received: 31 May 2022;  Published: 17 January 2023;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2301010


Following the establishment of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, sustainability has been given increasing attention in the agenda of the built environment. Sustainability embraces three key elements, i.e., environment, economy and society. However, the social dimension receives the least attention [...]

Application of Epistemic Uncertainty Analysis and Sensitivity Analysis in Green Construction Design

Received: 23 March 2022;  Published: 07 June 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2202023


Building performance is often expressed according to primary energy use; however studies should also include environmental load. To mitigate the effects of increased CO2 emissions, green building designs are now increasingly popular options for stakeholders. In contrast, impacts of green design parameters, building performance [...]
