Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In this Special Issue, we gather valuable research and activities on biomass and waste treatment based on anaerobic digestion to produce renewable energy. This Special Issue will cover processes developed to reduce GHG emissions and to produce renewable energy by converting biomass and organic wastes to biogas. We think you could make an excellent contribution based on your expertise in this field. The topics of interest for this Special Issue include (but are not restricted to):

  • Anaerobic digestion feedstock pretreatment;
  • Advanced anaerobic digestion processes;
  • Developing high-efficiency biogas production and upgrading;
  • Biomethanation;
  • Digestate treatment processes;
  • Nutrient recovery from anaerobic digestate;
  • Anaerobic digestion process modeling.

We kindly invite you to contribute a paper to this Special Issue on “Biomass and Waste Treatment Based on Anaerobic Digestion” at Processes, an MDPI journal with an IF of 3.5.

Processes is fully open access. As indicated by several studies, open access (unlimited and free access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations. Open access is supported by the authors and their institutes.

We hope you find this topic interesting and look forward to collaborating with you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

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.
