Special Issue Information
Wastes derived from various sectors have been regarded as renewable resources for further conversion to value-added products. There has been a number of studies demonstrating innovative process designs to upgrade waste into biofuels, platform chemicals, fertilizers, and other applications. Examples include waste upcycling, anaerobic digestion of organic solid wastes, waste biorefinery for producing high-value green chemicals and biomaterials, etc. There are several reports of novel technologies used to mitigate the environmental impacts arising from wastes. These advancements in waste conversion and handling technologies can deliver a high impact to ensure resource and energy securities and long-term environmental sustainability.
This Special Issue on “Advances in Value-Added Products from Waste” seeks high-quality research focusing on the novel process design and technology development for product innovation from wastes. Topics include but are not limited to:
- Process design and development;
- Downstream purification, separation, and recovery;
- Products innovation from wastes;
- Applications of value-added products;
- Process simulation;
- Lifecycle assessment;
- Waste treatment strategy (waste upcycling, upgrading);
- Sustainable circular bioeconomy.
