The demand for renewable fuel sources continues to attract global interest; however, food sources such as cereal grains and sugar crops are the dominant feedstocks for bioethanol production. Significant research has been conducted with regard to investigating alternatives to food-based feedstocks (e.g., lignan-based feedstock) as well as improving process designs to increase bioethanol production yields. Strategies with which to improve bioethanol yields are also being evaluated, including genetic modifications of fermentation organisms and cereal plants.
Value-added bioproducts produced from fermentative processes have also garnered interest. At a commercial scale, biogas produced from bioethanol operations has been used as an internal energy source. In addition, distillers’ grains have traditionally been used as an inexpensive animal feed; however, recent research has investigated methods with which to upgrade and enrich this substrate. Other value-added co-products (biomaterials, fine chemicals, polymers, glycerin, etc.) have also been identified in biofuel production and are of interest to further support a sustainable circular bioeconomy.
The goal of this Special Issue is to publish and curate recent and innovative research regarding advances in yeast genetics, fermentation technologies, processes, and strategies, as well as feedstock selections, to improve bioethanol production. Special interest is given to secondary added-value products, which will also be considered to further support the growth and sustainability of this renewable energy source. If you would like to contribute a review paper, please contact one of the Guest Editors to discuss the topic’s relevance before submitting the manuscript.

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.
