Some of the topics that are currently addressed under this important subtheme are:
- An economically viable method to use wastewater in the production of construction materials,
- Reducing energy requirement in cement factories from the milling process through the use of waste dust collected from quarries.
Two publications from the Faculty of Engineering addressed this topic.
The faculty aims to increase the researches that serve sustainable development in Lebanon and in the region. The faculty will continue to support creative ideas and encourage multidisciplinary national and international collaborations. During the coming years there will be a huge support to faculty members and postgraduate students that are working (or willing to work) under this umbrella. The support is awarded by the university to researches conducted in topics that serve society and creative sustainable development. In 2017/2018 two full scholarships for Ph.D. program will be given that will serve this cause. More scholarships are going to be awarded each year
