Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nowadays, decreasing carbon-emission has become the global theme. Therefore, in order to achieve the carbon neutrality in the middle of this century, many efforts should be done for the low- and zero- combustion applied in vehicles, marines, gas turbines and even aircraft engines. As we known, fuel spray and combustion have significant effects on the efficiency and emission. And much more investigations should be done to develop new models and strategies for low-carbon engines. Besides, in the recent decades, e-fuel become popular and could be obtained successfully by the help of solar and wind energies. In such a case, the sustainable fuels could continue to survive in the future. Therefore, the special issue from Sustainability is organized and named as “Sustainable Fuel Spray, Fuel Film Formation and Combustion Applied in Low-carbon Powertrains”. Now, we are encouraging all the scholars to contribute to it and report your good ideas and achievements. We believe it would be a great issue and provide excellent coverage of the current technology.

Potential topics include but are not limited to: Liquid spray and impingement; E-fuel characteristics; Fuel film formation; Low-carbon combustion; Development of zero and low carbon fuels; Model development in spray and combustion.

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.
