Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The evaluation and improvement of energy-conversion and energy-intensive chemical systems from the perspectives of their sustainability (thermodynamics, economics, and environmental impacts) require a deep understanding of:

-The real thermodynamic inefficiencies and the processes that cause them

-The costs and environmental impact associated with equipment and thermodynamic inefficiencies as well as the connection between those three important factors

-The interconnections among efficiency, investment cost, and component-related environmental impact associated with the selection of specific system components 

-Probable measures that would reduce the inefficiencies, the cost, and the environmental impact of the system being studied.

To reduce the thermodynamic inefficiencies, costs, and environmental impacts in a system, we must understand their process of formation.

Exergy-based methods reveal the location, the magnitude, and the sources of inefficiencies, costs, and environmental impact and allow us to study the interconnections between them and the real potential for improvement. The input from these methods is useful in developing strategies for improvement and optimization of energy-conversion and energy-intensive chemical systems.

Research and review papers in the field of application of exergy-based methods are sought for this Special Issue.

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. Entropy 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 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.
