Following a successful first edition, we are pleased to announce the launch of the second edition of a Special Issue entitled "Catalytic Processes in Biofuel Production and Biomass Valorization II".
Public attention to energy consumption and the related emissions of pollutants is increasing. The constant increase in the costs of raw materials derived from petroleum and the growing concerns surrounding the environmental impact have given considerable impetus to research into new products from renewable raw materials and to the proposal of technological solutions that reduce energy consumption, the use of hazardous substances and waste production, while promoting a model of sustainable development. The valorization of waste materials is a viable alternative to traditional disposal systems, including in the field of renewable energy and biofuels.
This Special Issue aims to focus on sustainable chemistry, biomass valorization, biofuels, biodiesel production, waste production, raw materials and glycerol. The topics of this Special Issue include both experimental and theoretical contributions. Original research papers, communications and review articles will be considered for submission.

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. Catalysts is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2700 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.
