A Review of the Multi-Physical Characteristics of Plant Aggregates and Their Effects on the Properties of Plant-Based Concrete
Recent Progress in Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of Materials. Its aim is to provide timely, authoritative introductions to current thinking, developments and research in carefully selected topics. Also, it aims to enhance the international exchange of scientific activities in materials science and technology.
Recent Progress in Materials publishes original high quality experimental and theoretical papers and reviews on basic and applied research in the field of materials science and engineering, with focus on synthesis, processing, constitution, and properties of all classes of materials. Particular emphasis is placed on microstructural design, phase relations, computational thermodynamics, and kinetics at the nano to macro scale. Contributions may also focus on progress in advanced characterization techniques.

About This Topic
The construction sector is one of the most resource consuming sectors around the world, including extracted materials, energy and water consumption, as well as waste generation. That’s why the sustainable construction is a key target in countries policy for circular economy: a regenerative economic in which negative environmental impacts generated by construction industry are minimised.
One way to reach it is the production of eco-friendly construction materials, which are based on some premises, including: the use of local and easily available resources, the miminisation of energy and water for their production, the minimisation of transport for their application, the use of waste for their production, as well as their appropriateness for the climate in which they are applied.
This special issue is devoted to publishing papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in materials, with special relevance on eco-friendly building, which could contribute to a construction industry based on the circular economy principles.
