Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite contributions for a special issue of Energies focussing on research into gas hydrate exchange in porous media with specific interest in carbon neutral energy production. In recent years, there has been significant effort to advance our understanding of guest exchange in natural gas hydrate systems, ranging from laboratory experiments to field measurements. At the small scale, laboratory research is revealing the fundamental processes that govern hydrate exchange, whilst large scale field measurements and geotechnical models are characterising the nature of hydrate reserves and their viability for energy production and carbon sequestration. Research into the practical limitations of hydrate exchange is increasingly important, in order to address geomechanical and environmental constraints to hydrate production.

This Special Issue is open to submissions from all aspects of hydrate exchange research. As a multi-disciplinary topic sitting at the nexus of engineering, geology, physics, and chemistry, we hope to bring together the most recent advances in all areas to deliver a comprehensive understanding of hydrate exchange research and to identify the current challenges facing this promising method of carbon neutral energy production.

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.
