Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Bioenergy and biorefinery production have been considered the future of energy production strategies, replacing current fossil fuel energy industries. Recently, several interdisciplinary bioproduction technologies have arisen overcoming conventional fermentation limitations, such as low productivity and process development difficulties. The expansion of bioproduction facilitates not only diverse biocatalysts but also the use of various substrates (from inorganic gases to waste materials) and products (e.g., electricity, polymers, and fuels). Microbial fuel cell and bioelectrochemical production are representative new bioproduction strategies, integrating fermentation and electrochemistry to generate electricity and valuable chemicals.
This Special Issue, titled “Advanced Bioenergy and Biorefinery Processes”, covers most of the original research on bioproduction, with aspects of newly suggested multi- and interdisciplinary technologies. Examples of topics within the scope of this Special Issue include the following (but are not limited to these):
- The integration of bioprocess modelling and case studies;
- Fermentation process design, integration, and intensification;
- Bioprocess modelling, simulation, and optimization;
- Biofuel and biochemical production strategies using nonconventional methods;
- Microbial fuel cell, electro-fermentation, and microbial electrosynthesis;
- Techno-economics of biofuel and biochemical 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.
