Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
In the framework of sustainable development and climate change mitigation, the scaling up of known processes and the development of new ones focused on the production of fuels, chemical and other products of industrial and social interest from renewable resources are currently one of the main challenges of the scientific–technical community. Among these renewable raw materials, biowastes have been revealed as one of the most interesting, integrating the concerns described above to the newest circle economy and bioeconomy proposals.
The Special Issue “From Biowastes to Biofuels and Biobased Chemicals: Latest Advances and Prospects” of Applied Sciences will present the most recent research and design works in valorization of biowastes trough the production of different biobased chemicals, as biofuels, platform molecules, etc.
I encourage you to share your last research in all the fields related to the scope of the Special Issue, including biomass and biowastes pyrolysis and other thermal, hydrothermal, and catalytic processes, biofuels from waste biomass, platform molecules (furfural, levoglucosane, levulinic acid, etc.) production from biowaste raw materials, fermentation and other biotechnological valorization of biowastes, etc.

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.
