Interests: municipal and industrial waste management technologies; the recovery of useful, commercial products (biofuels, chemical blocks) from waste recovery; integrated waste management lines
In order to successfully transition to a sustainable, biobased society and circular economy, the implementation of processes able to recover biofuels as well as bioproducts from renewable raw materials is of vital importance. Novel and emerging processing technologies can enable the recycling and valorisation of biowaste into higher-value biobased products (e.g., biobased chemicals and plastics, nutrients, human food or animal feed ingredients and proteins), thereby generating significant economic, social and environmental benefits.
Thus, this Special Issue aims to focus on upcycling biowaste into biobased products to communicate up-to-date knowledge to experts working in the field, as well as interested readers. The goal of this Special Issue is to outline the optimal use of biowaste for the production of a wide array of biobased products by demonstrating innovative technologies. Types of biowaste considered can include, but are not limited to, food and kitchen waste, sludge from the treatment of wastewater, residues from gardens and parks and organic industrial biowaste. The ultimate goal is to showcase possible pathways with the potential to boost the integration of a zero-waste circular economy, reduce resource depletion and as create job opportunities. We also hope to bring to light the main regulatory barriers and technical and financial hurdles faced during the development of such schemes.

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. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
