Fruits and vegetables are preserved by drying using a simultaneous heat, mass, and momentum transfer process that extends the food product’s shelf life. Drying is a crucial step in the conversion of biomass; for instance, pre-drying is necessary when using biomass to generate electricity in order to improve the combustion efficiency. Mathematical models should be used to simulate and validate the drying process. It is possible to obtain results through the use of virtual laboratories that would be difficult or impractical to attain at the conceptual stage of research. The use of mathematical equations to anticipate the behavior of the drying process is known as mathematical modeling of food and biomass processing.
This Special Issue titled “Mathematical Modeling of Drying Kinetics in Food and Biomass Processing” invites high-quality research articles on the mathematical modeling of various drying methods, such as oven drying, solar drying, infrared drying, radiofrequency drying, microwave drying, ohmic heating, high-electric-field drying or similar drying systems for a variety of food and biomass.

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.
