We are inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of “Pyrolysis of Biomass”.
Within the scope of biomass pyrolysis as a renewable option to produce chemicals, this Special Issue will aim to compile recent advances on pyrolysis-based technologies as useful processes in future biorefineries. The development of innovative methodologies to convert biomass into useful materials is still a significant challenge for the preparation of fuels and sustainable chemicals. Thermochemical processes, such as fast pyrolysis, can play an important role in biorefineries, considered to be highly versatile for biomass conversion with high yields of liquid products that can be used directly or upgraded depending on the applications.
Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:
- biomass pyrolysis and upgrading processes
- integrated pyrolysis systems
- data collection on transport and handling costs of biomass and derived products from pyrolysis
- techno-economic assessment studies for optimization of the integrated system.
- scaling up process design towards the lower cost and easy operation.
It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, short communications, and reviews are all welcome.
We look forward to receiving your submissions.

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. Energies 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 1600 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.
