Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The need for sustainable technologies is leading the charge of several research and industrial projects, especially within the fields of fuel production, storage, and transportation. The modification of existing production processes, the introduction of innovative solutions, or the possible use of extreme conditions (e.g., low-temperature, high pressure) towards leaner and more effective processes poses new challenges under different perspectives, including I) the availability of robust techniques, models, and databases for a correct physical–chemical characterization of the investigated systems, II) the appropriateness of existing infrastructures and procedures for storage and transportation, III) the applicability of current methodology for the evaluation of environmental and safety aspects in the case of release and normal operations. Therefore, interdisciplinary, fundamental-based, and multicriteria studies evaluating different aspects involving the sustainability of underdevelopment alternatives are strongly advisable to promote robust and optimized implementation on a large scale.

This Special Issue intends to attract submissions from academics and professional engineers working on the characterization of sustainability aspects concerning alternative fuels, innovative energy systems and materials, and new concepts for storage and transportation technologies. We welcome the submission of innovative experimental and numerical research and review articles addressing the abovementioned topics.

Dr. Gianmaria Pio

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.
