Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biofuel is a biomass-derived type of energy and is expected to replace conventional energy (such as petroleum, coal, and natural gas). While some biofuel is produced by a physio-chemical reaction, most of it can be produced by microbes. Therefore, the isolation and characterization of microorganisms that produce biofuel or its precursor compounds, as well as the development of microbial and its enzyme technology for efficient biofuel production, received attention from the standpoint of future industrial applications.

The Special Issue on “Microbial Culture and Isolation for the Production of Biofuels” welcomes research articles relevant to technologies used for the microbial production of biofuels (bioethanol and other alcohol, biodiesel, biocrude, and biogas) and the isolation and biochemical/physiological characterization of microorganisms that can be used for future applications as an environmentally friendly technology. Articles for a simple taxonomic or phylogenic studies of microbes are not considered for publication.

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.
