One of the priorities of our modern society today is to set out a credible pathway toward the development of the circular economy and bioeconomy sectors. For such a venture to reach its full potential, sustainable and circular management of renewable resources is required, supported by innovative technologies for the prevention and removal of pollutants. Lowering the use of non-renewable raw materials results in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and environmental footprint, promotes carbon neutrality and resource efficiency, and helps to develop innovative and sustainable value chains in the biobased sector. The transformation of biological resources via biotechnological routes is crucial for developing greener industrial processes and products with perceived benefits to the health of the consumer and our ecosystems.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present current research advances and challenges in bioprocess engineering, regarding the valorization of biomass residues and waste streams, and its potential toward the production of a wide range of biofuels and biobased products, such as food, feed, biopolymers, biosurfactants, organic acids, and various fine chemicals. Such studies may include but are not limited to metabolic engineering, bioprocess engineering strategies, optimization studies, multiproduct biorefinery platforms, production capacity of underexploited microorganisms, as well as the production and characterization of novel biobased products.

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.
