The interest in the use of biomass for renewable energy production is steadily increasing due to the environmental and energy independence concerns. Sustainability assessment of renewable energy technologies should certainly include analysis of environmental impact. However, to encourage environmentally sustainable bioenergy strategies, the analytic evaluation of the economic and social performance of the different bioenergy solutions is needed.
We invite researchers to contribute with original research articles, as well as review articles, to this Special Issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the economic (LCC), environmental (LCA) and social assessment (SLCA) of:
- Woody biomass,
- Herbaceous biomass,
- Agricultural by-products and waste valorisation,
- Anaerobic digestion of waste and agricultural feedstocks,
- Biogas and biomethane production and utilization,
- Renewable energies in agriculture,
- Novel biobased products.
- Innovative solutions for organic waste valorisation
