Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Advances in Sustainable Hydrogen Production: Challenges and Opportunities
Nowadays, it is commonly accepted that one of the key factors for sustainable development and climate change mitigation is an increase in biomass-derived fuels. Electric and hybrid technologies for transportation can also be used to replace combustion engines. For these objectives, it is essential to promote the development of processes for producing second-generation biofuels in order to overcome the limitations of first-generation biofuels. For several technical and economic reasons, waste biomass can be considered to be the most interesting raw material for the production of these biofuels.
This Special Issue of Applied Sciences, entitled “Biofuels from Waste Biomass”, aims to collect the most recent studies in this research field and present the most promising processes for biofuel production.
I encourage you to share your latest research in any field related to the scope of this Special Issue, including biomass and waste biomass pyrolysis, other thermal, hydrothermal, catalytic, or biological processes for the production of biofuels, and the characterization of products.
Prof. Dr. Francisco Heras
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 2300 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.
