Fermentation processes play an important role in the transformation industry, such as food, pharmaceutical, biofuels, industrial metabolites, and so on. As a result, the demand is increasing for high-quality products with low-energy consumption and operational safety, which can operate within the context of the very complex nature of biological systems. This, however, has made process operations difficult, leading to the development of intensive engineering strategies to achieve these performance objectives. Therefore, modeling and simulation tasks for optimization and control purposes in fermentation equipment are incredibly important.
The main goal of this Special Issue is to include the latest developments and advancements in process fermentation technology and bioprocessing to achieve progress in key industrial sectors. Special attention will be given to research topics such as high predictive modeling techniques, detailed process simulations to characterize realizable operating conditions, applications of multiobjective optimization techniques with the newest mathematical techniques, the design of online estimation procedures for process monitoring purposes and new controller designs, and improvements to closed-loop operation performance.
Overall, the aim of this issue is to support the development of sustainability assessment tools to measure the socioeconomic and environmental performance of innovative technical advances for fermentation 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. Fermentation 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.
