Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

At present, the need for a deep energy transition to renewable and sustainable sources is commonly accepted by the scientific community and general society. To meet this challenge, the use of biowastes for the production of chemicals—especially hydrogen, which has been revealed as a main energy vector—is one of the most important targets. Therefore, efficient processes and technologies must be developed in the short/mid term suitable in different contexts, such as urban, industrial or rural environments.

The aim of this Special Issue of Applied Sciences, “Advances and Prospects in Hydrogen and Chemicals from Biowastes”, is to share the latest advances in the production of hydrogen and chemicals using biowastes as raw material, including new processes development, high-efficiency catalysts, technical-economic feasibility studies, life cycle assessments, etc.

I encourage you to spread your latest research in all fields related to the scope of the Special Issue, including biowastes treatment by thermochemical, hydrothermal, chemical or biologic processes to produce hydrogen or chemicals.

Best Regards,

Prof. Dr. Francisco Heras
Guest Editor

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.
