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 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 variety of article types (Original Research, Review, Communication, Opinion, 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 This Topic

The special issue on "Sustainable Buildings and Low Carbon Built Environment" focuses on the critical need to develop and implement innovative strategies and technologies that reduce the carbon footprint of the built environment. With the construction sector being a significant contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions, there is an urgent imperative to promote sustainable building practices. This issue aims to cover a broad range of topics, including the design, construction, and management of buildings and urban spaces that prioritize energy efficiency, renewable energy integration, and sustainable materials.

The scope includes advancements in building technologies, smart building systems, green architecture, and urban planning that support low carbon and sustainable development goals. Additionally, the application of AI and machine learning in optimizing building performance, energy management, and predictive maintenance will be explored. Contributions are encouraged from interdisciplinary perspectives, addressing the technical, economic, social, and environmental dimensions of sustainable buildings. The significance of this special issue lies in its potential to compile cutting-edge research and practical solutions that can guide policymakers, industry professionals, and academics in transforming the built environment.
