Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biomass from agriculture, agro-industry, and municipalities is considered a renewable and sustainable energy resource that can be used to produce renewable electricity, bioenergy, transportation fuels (biofuels), and/or high-value functional chemicals. Biomass conversion technologies, such as those involving combustion, thermochemical, electrochemical, or biochemical pathways, can be used to convert biomass into alternative solid energy sources (charcoal, biochar, and RDF), liquid biofuels (biodiesel, algal biofuel, bioethanol, pyrolysis, and liquefaction bio-oils), and gaseous fuels (biogas, syngas, and biohydrogen). The produced bioenergy can complement other renewables such as solar and wind energy and can assist in meeting the targets of renewable energy and greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, advanced and innovative biomass conversion technologies play a crucial role in renewable energy development and the replacement of fossil fuels and chemicals in achieving environmental sustainability. This Special Issue aims to publish a comprehensive overview and in-depth technical research papers addressing the recent progress in biomass conversion technologies and processes. Studies of advanced technologies and methods for bioenergy, biorefinery, and biofuel production are also welcomed. Research involving experimental and numerical studies, recent developments, and current and emerging technologies in this field is highly encouraged.

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. Energies 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 2600 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.
