Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Global energy consumption continues to grow, leading to increased carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions due to the increasing use of fossil fuels. It has been predicted that in the coming few decades (2010–2060), about 500 gigatons of carbon dioxide (CO2) will be generated from the combustion of fossil fuels. The excessive anthropomorphic emissions of CO2 have caused a severe global increase in temperature, known as the “greenhouse effect”. Therefore, the mitigation of climate change is one of the most important issues that the scientific community currently faces. The International Energy Agency (IEA) suggests that some 100 GW of power plant capacity, representing 0.5 billion metric tonnes of CO2 production per year, must employ carbon capture and storage (CCS) to alleviate greenhouse gas emissions.

CCS defines a wide range of technologies being used to release CO2 from significant point sources of the fossil-fuel-consuming industry. CO2 capture technologies that include precombustion capture, post-combustion capture, and oxy-fuel capture are preferred in this Special Issue. Moreover, the technologies of CO2 capture with separation are also considered, which include the adsorption, absorption, membrane, microalgae, and cryogenic methods. Finally, this Special Issue aims to point out the most common and developed CO2 capture technologies to achieve zero CO2 emissions in the near-future.

This Special Issue on “Low Carbon Management in Energy Systems: CO2 Capture Technology” aims to cover all the relevant aspects of CO2 capture technology, with a particular focus on innovative solutions that are currently being explored to achieve practically applicable processes. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • CCS;
  • CO2 capture technologies;
  • Precombustion carbon capture;
  • Post-combustion carbon capture;
  • Oxy-fuel carbon capture;
  • Adsorption and absorption;
  • Direct air CO2 capture (DAC);
  • Carbon footprint;
  • Low-cost and efficient capture of low-concentration CO2

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. 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.
