Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

An important purpose of this Special Issue is the presentation of new and actual research results of various bioresources’ utilization and use for forage processing and energy conversion technologies. It is also important to evaluate these technologies from an energy and environmental point of view.

Main subject areas of this issue:

  • System analysis methods, including life cycle assessment and management;
  • Biosystems engineering and efficient use of new technological processes;
  • New and renewable sources of energy and sustainable use of them for energy conversion;
  • Sustainable energy preservation and regeneration methods;
  • Sustainable utilization of bioresources such as land, atmosphere and other biological resources;
  • Land ecosystems maintenance and biodiversity preservation;
  • Effects of global climate change on development and sustainability.

This Special Issue will present the results of research on plant harvesting, processing and use for forage and energy; energy conversion methods and processes of various bioresources, such as herbaceous and woody plants, including the short rotation and other fast growing plants; the physical-mechanical, chemical and thermal characteristics of chopped and pressed plants and their residues; the investigation of the ash content and possibilities of ash utilization for plant fertilization, ash chemical and elemental composition and ash melting characteristics; greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and emissions of harmful pollutants (CO2, CO, NOx and CxHy) when plant biomass is prepared and used for energy conversion processes (incineration, gasification and pyrolysis); the full technologies of lifecycle assessment; and the results of energy and environmental evaluation of technologies, taking into account the economic and social aspects and the sustainable development of people’s living conditions and quality.

This Special Issue will present state-of-the-art results for its intended purpose and will complement scientific information published in other scientific publications and journals.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
