The development of sustainable industrial and environmental processes through the recycling of material is considered a fundamental task for various researchers and companies, since the re-utilization of solid wastes is one of the pillars of a Circular Economy. A notable number of materials, at micro or nanoscale, has been recovered from various industrial and agricultural wastes in the last twenty years, with the aim to develop sustainable processes to allow their complete re-utilization for antropic actvities and use. Among these novel materials, agro-industrial wastes have been demonstrated to be suitable for energy and raw material recovery, by transforming them in gaseous/liquid fuels (gasification/pyrolysis) or by activating them to produce functionalized adsorbent materials.
In this Special Issue, researchers are invited to submit original research papers, as well as review articles, on any of the topics related to energy/raw material recovery from agro-industrial waste, also providing an economic analysis of the whole process. Exergy analysis of novel energy/raw material recovery processes is also welcome. The studies should report the complete re-use of the waste, focusing on the overall costs and sustainability of the proposed processes.

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.
