Invasive-alien species and non-native species represent a serious risk to the biodiversity of an area. One of the most significant affectations of natural ecosystems is biological invasion, which represents a threat to biodiversity conservation. Due to globalization and the expansion-annexation of territories, the presence of non-native species has become increasingly common. These species must be eliminated to facilitate the expansion of native species.
Biomass waste can be transformed into energy and/or clean fuels through a variety of technologies; however, it is interesting to try to previously obtain value-added products and, after the recovery of the waste, transform it into energy
The circular bioeconomy is a model of production, distribution, and consumption in which the value of products, materials, and other resources remain as long as possible. Recent initiatives, such as the European Green Pact (EC, 2019), confirm the expected role of the BEC in the European Union of the future, as well as in each of its regions. The biorefinery model and the obtaining of larger compounds of different degrees of value through productive cascade approaches must be intensively developed.
The main objective of this Special Issue (SI) is to promote the use of any biomass waste, or invasive plants to obtain value-added products and energy. It is essential to carry out the recovery of waste at the territorial level and develop measures to facilitate its minimization and reuse, with experiences aimed at zero waste policy.

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. Applied Sciences 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 2400 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.
