Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to contribute your research to our Special Issue “Novel Cleaner Materials for Pavements”.

Due to the escalating demands for pavement service levels, the requirements of eco-friendly and low-carbon development, and the advances in materials science and cross-discipline research, the pursuit of cleaner and more sustainable materials has witnessed significant growth in recent years. Meanwhile, it is widely recognized that pavement materials are pivotal in shaping the construction and maintenance of road engineering. Thus, in order to promote the pioneering of cleaner materials for pavements, we are thrilled to launch this new Special Issue in Coatings, dedicated to collating original research articles as well as comprehensive review articles.

This Special Issue focuses on the newest research in cleaner and more sustainable materials in the fields of pavement engineering. We place a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research and practical application. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Recycled waste materials in pavements;
Bio-based materials;
Chemistry of alternative binders;
Low-emission materials;
Low-noise materials;
Functional pavement materials.
