Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In a world struggling with the escalating challenges of environmental degradation and resource depletion, the exploration of sustainable solutions has become an imperative pursuit. Among the many strategies aimed at mitigating these issues, thermochemical conversion processes have emerged as an alternative to harness the untapped potential of biomass and waste materials. Traditionally recognized for their role in energy generation, these conversion techniques have found relevance in other novel and interesting contexts, such as their non-energetic applications.

This Special Issue, entitled "Application of Products from Thermochemical Conversion on Biomass and Wastes", targets research that explores how the valuable products and byproducts generated during thermochemical conversion processes can be repurposed across diverse applications.

The Special Issue seeks to uncover innovative ways to harness the outputs of thermochemical conversion for sustainable progress beyond the energetic ones. While minimizing environmental impacts, such applications can guide us to a greener and more resource-efficient future. With a focus on non-energetic applications, we set the stage for a paradigm shift in how we perceive and leverage the potential of thermochemical conversion technologies.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Processes 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 2400 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.
