Biofuel is one of the main renewable fuels capable of substituting fossil fuel in power generation and transportation. Although electric vehicles will be the one of the options for the substitution of internal combustion engines, until this substitution is complete, biofuel is an excellent alternative. It is particularly relevant in the mid-term for road transport and in the long-term for rail, marine, and aviation transport as well as electricity generation. Biofuel is a renewable and sustainable energy source made from raw materials and wastes, among other resources. Advanced technologies and processes are employed to produce biofuels, such as transesterification, esterification, pyrolysis, etc. Thus, due to the merits of biodiesel for environmental sustainability, bioenergy technologies and processes play a crucial role in renewable energy development. This Special Issue aims to publish a comprehensive overview and in-depth technical research papers addressing recent progress in biofuel processes and applications. Studies of advanced techniques and methods for biofuel production and biofuel applications are also welcomed. Research involving experimental and numerical studies, review papers, recent developments, and the current state-of-the-art and emerging technologies in this field are highly encouraged.

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.
