The large-scale industry of carbon fiber has evolved in recent years in more and more fields, such as aerospace, military, medical, automobile, supporting goods and so on. This huge interest arises from their extraordinary properties like, good mechanical strength, good electrical and thermal conductivities, great chemical stability, etc. In recent years, the use of these fibers has become increasingly attractive in the energy field as they are raw materials for the production of windmill blades, for the storage of natural gas and fuel cells for transport. Nowadays, the main source of these fibers production is represented by the electrospinning process of polyacrylonitrile (PAN). With this in mind, it will be very interesting to direct fiber production to sustainable precursors. The most widespread renewable resource in the world is the biomass. Consequently, there are considerable volumes of sustainable biomass (meaning low costs production) which can lead to the obtaining of carbon fiber.

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. Fibers 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 1600 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.
