Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Air pollutants are produced by multiple sources of both anthropogenic and natural origin. Among these sources, the one that often receives media attention is the combustion of fuels in stationary and non-stationary systems.

According to the definition provided by United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), Stationary Fuel Combustion Sources are devices that combust solid, liquid, or gaseous fuel, generally for the purposes of producing electricity, generating steam, or providing useful heat or energy for industrial, commercial, or institutional use, or reducing the volume of waste by removing combustible matter. Stationary fuel combustion sources also include systems for domestic use. In the last few decades, increasing attention has been paid to this kind of pollutant source and some government benefits have been used to promote the transition to more sustainable systems.

Non-stationary combustion systems producing air pollutants can be identified in the transport sector and off road. According to European Environment Agency (EEA), emissions of air pollutants have decreased for all transport modes since 1990, thanks to introduction of progressively stricter emissions standards and fuel quality standards. On the other side, for shipping and aviation this reduction is not evident. In particular, many concerns are related to nitrogen oxide emissions for ships while, for aviation, emissions of all pollutants have increased, except non-methane volatile organic compounds.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect original and review articles on all aspects of research on “Gas Emissions from Combustion Sources” with the purpose of identifying the most relevant sources of air pollution and investigating new solutions for a cleaner environment.

The topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Emissions from internal combustion engines
  • Emissions from stationary combustion systems
  • Emissions from power generators
  • Solutions for the optimization of combustion
  • Solutions for the reductions of pollutants emissions from combustion sources
  • Effects of COVID-19 and related lifestyle on gas emissions from combustion sources
  • Spatial and temporal variations of emissions from combustion sources

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. Gases is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
