Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The ever-increasing energy demand and reliance on fossil fuels have led to global climate change and energy insecurity, which cause widespread concern. Therefore, developing sustainably energy from abundant waste for a future of net-zero carbon emissions is timely and appropriate, and is considered a vital solution for environmentally sustainable, economically viable, and non-fossil energy resources.

We are pleased to announce a Special Issue on “Waste-to-Energy Technologies for a Sustainable and Net-Zero Emission Future”. In this specific research context, we aim to gather original research papers, reviews, case studies, and technical notes highlighting the up-to-date and state-of-the-art breakthroughs and innovations in the field of waste-to-energy technologies (e.g., hydrothermal liquefaction, electrochemistry, etc.) and green chemistry (e.g., ionic liquid, deep eutectic solvents, etc.). This Special Issue will also include contributions on topics such as energy storage devices and materials, electric vehicles, renewable energy systems, techno-economical assessments, circular economy, and life cycle assessment.

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.
