Nowadays, we are experiencing rapid economic and technological development all over the world. Meanwhile, we are also facing an increasing number of challenges to maintain sustainable development for industrial production and a better living environment. Advanced technology and fundamental research would provide such support to achieve clean products and a clean environment.
Herein, I would like to introduce a new online, open access journal, Clean Technologies, to all the readers. Through this new journal, we are beginning a new journey toward the scientific fields of engineering and technology to reach a better living environment. For this journal, we welcome contributions in the form of original research papers, review articles, communications and short notes covering a broad range of research areas and topics including, but not limited to, the following:
- cleaner production and technical processes
- industrial chemistry and chemical engineering
- production and process engineering
- clean energies
- green chemistry
- sustainable development
- environmentally friendly technology
- analysis and improvement of traditional technology and sources of pollution
- recycling economy (acid-base circulation)
- energy-saving technology
- food technology and engineering
- food safety
- governance, legislation, and policy for sustainability
Clean Technologies also welcomes Special Issue proposals from academics and industrial researchers. Our journal aims to provide a forum to disclose in-depth findings and to facilitate more collaboration between scientists and engineers around the world to produce their innovative studies and cutting-edge technologies that will be published in Clean Technologies.
As the Founding Editor-in-Chief, I would like to thank MDPI. With the support of the Editorial Office and Editorial Board, I look forward to contributing to the great success of Clean Technologies.
