Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the pursuit of sustainable energy solutions, chemical engineering plays a crucial role in developing innovative approaches for energy storage. This special issue explores the potential of ceramic materials integrated with chemical engineering techniques for clean and efficient energy. Ceramic materials offer promising thermal and chemical stability for energy storage. Researchers optimize their composition, structure, and synthesis, and engineer surface properties to enhance performance and reliability. The combination of chemical engineering and ceramics enables exciting advancements in batteries and supercapacitors, enhancing energy storage capacity while addressing cost, safety, and environmental challenges. Fueling the future with chemical engineering approaches in ceramic materials holds the potential to revolutionize renewable energy systems, promote sustainability, and reduce fossil fuel dependence. Ongoing research and technological advancements are unlocking new horizons in clean energy storage, paving the way for a brighter, greener future.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. ChemEngineering is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
