Increasing attention is paid to develop effective technologies for the sequestration of CO2 and its storage. In a virtuous view, they should be followed by processes that can lead to its valorisation as chemical, e.g. for the regeneration of fuels, but also for the production of intermediates. These are usually energy demanding and rather slow processes, requiring energy input and catalysts. Some examples are the innovative strategies for the photoconversion or electroreduction of carbon dioxide. This special issue collects original research papers, reviews and commentaries focused on the challenges for the valorisation and conversion of CO2. Submissions are welcome especially (but not exclusively) in the following areas:
- Catalytic processes for the conversion of CO2
- Photocatalytic processes for the conversion of CO2
- Electrocatalytic processes for the conversion of CO2
- Process design issues for the valorisation of CO2
- Economic and life cycle assessment in the valorisation of CO2
- Innovative processes and reactors for CO2 conversion

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 papers will be 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. Catalysts is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1300 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.
