Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to global climate change, concomitant regulations, and the declining fossil fuel resources, it will become necessary in the coming years to introduce new fuels with a reduced carbon footprint into combustion systems in stationary, automotive and aircraft engines. Possible candidates for this are green fuels such as hydrogen, ammonia, methanol, and their derivatives. However, their use in sustainable development of ICE raises a number of problems due to the different properties of these fuels in terms of ignition temperature, combustion temperature, flame propagation rate, reaction kinetics, or flame shape. These parameters directly affect the performance characteristics of power systems, especially thermal efficiency, durability, operation, and toxic compounds emissions (NOx, CO, HC and PM). Hence the need for research on the impact of renewable fuels on the sustainable development of ICE in stationary (gas turbine, big stationary engine) and transport (automotive, marine and aviation) systems, using numerical and experimental methods and those tested under actual operating conditions to achieve the degree of technological readiness expected by the industry.

Taking into account these challenges, present a Special Issue of Sustainability entitled: "Alternative Fuels for Advanced Internal Combustion Engine Technologies, Thermodynamic and Emission Assessment". The purpose of the Issue is to present recent scientific research results and solutions from the industrial sector that seek to introduce decarbonized fuels for the sustainable development of ICE combustion systems.

We invite you to publish original manuscripts and reviews related to a wide range of topics concerning the use of alternative/renewable fuels in stationary and transportation internal combustion engines:

  1. Decarbonized fuels as a challenge for sustainable development of advanced internal combustion engines;
  2. Optimization techniques for sustainable development internal combustion engine with new decarbonized fuels: operating parameters analysis;
  3. Assessment of RES fuels fuel suitability for internal combustion engines;
  4. Fuel flexibility in green transformation in stationary and transportation internal combustion engine;
  5. Environmental aspects of new fuel introduction in the sustainable transport sector and electricity generation.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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.
