Biomass can be exploited to produce bio-oil, a straightforward alternative raw material for fossil sources. Bio-oil can be used to separate different bio-chemicals or as energy carriers. The main processes that convert biomass into bio-oil are fast pyrolysis, direct liquefaction, and hydrothermal liquefaction.
Scientific and technological developments regarding bio-oil production and quality have been conducted, stressing out the bio-oil applications and upgrading. Generally, the research on bio-oil features its production from biomass (composition and chemistry), application, environmental and economic issues and impact.
This Special Issue on “State of the Art of Bio-Oil Production and Processing” aims to present outstanding research and the comprehensive coverage of all aspects related to bio-oil. The Special Issue targets the production and conversion technology, namely, the technologies and methodologies to produce bio-oil from natural feedstocks in sustainable, economically, and environmentally responsible ways, as well as to cover the work regarding its applications.
This Special Issue will bring together high-quality research papers on the different aspects of bio-oils, including forthcoming challenges. Reviews on the status quo and emerging topics are also welcome. Topics include but not are limited to:
- Bio-oil production techniques;
- Bio-oil characterization;
- Bio-oil applications;
- Feedstock for bio-oil production;
- Bio-based materials from bio-oil.

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.
