Call for abstracts - Building services as a key element in the circular economy
Posted: 12 January 2022
The BSER&T editorial board is keen to showcase, as a Special Issue publication, the latest knowledge and developments in all areas related to building services as a key element of the circular economy.
If you have research or practice that could be suitable to feature in this Special Issue and you are able to produce a robust, peer reviewed research paper or technical note or review paper we would like to hear from you. We are looking for papers that present research in the following areas:
Aspects of circular economy of building services systems and/or products (including mechanical, electrical, public health, vertical transportation, BMS and control systems, lighting, and facades).
Operational vs embodied carbon of buildings and systems.
Maintenance and operational aspects such as plant replacement and repairs, and refrigerants.
End of life recyclability and reusability of building services and systems
Circular economy models, methods, and tools.
Circular economy in sectors such as hospitality, supermarkets, and offices.
- Circular economy case studies. • Topics that would provide knowledge/information that advances understanding of circular economy in buildings.
A group of papers will be selected that will form an appropriately coherent Special Issue. We will contact prospective authors within 3 weeks of the submission closing date to advise whether their paper is invited to be developed for the issue. There will then be a maximum of 12 weeks to submit the final paper. All submissions are subject to peer review.
