A multidisciplinary research team from An-Najah National University, published two research papers in two international research journals. The research team includes Dr. Osayd Abdel-Fattah, Dr. Ihab H. Alsurakji, Eng. Ramez Al-Khalidi, and Dr. Iyad Assaf from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Dr. Amjad Al-Qanni from the Department of Chemical Engineering, Dr. Muhammad Samaaneh from Department of Civil Engineering, Dr. Muhammad Najjar from the Department of Business Administration, and Prof. Dr. Abdulnasser Nour from the Accounting Department.


The first research paper titled” Experimental evaluation of using pyrolyzed carbon black derived from waste tires as additive towards sustainable concrete” was published in the Journal of Case Studies in Construction Materials under Elsevier (IF: 3.328, rank: 42 out of 136 in Engineering). It focuses on the idea of converting waste into products in buildings and building materials to reduce the environmental impacts of the cement and concrete industry. Therefore, in this study, the use of pyrolytic carbon black (PCB), produced from used tires, as an additive in structural concrete production has been investigated. Also, the study explores mixing design patterns, optimum additive content of PCBs to cement, mechanical properties of concrete, and solid waste tires management through stakeholder theory.

The second one titled “The role of blockchain technology in the integration of sustainability practices across multi-tier supply networks: implications and potential complexities” was published in the Journal of Sustainable Finance & Investment (Q1 (2020) Cite Score Best Quartile). It attempts to put forth a profound exploration of the integration of sustainability across complex multi-tier supply networks through the utilization of blockchain technology. The paper includes a selected literature review compromising well-cited research that focuses on multi-tier supply networks and blockchain technology.
