Continued industrialization and population growth have increased annual energy consumption. Increasing fossil fuel prices and greenhouse gases have motivated the research and development of renewable resources in many countries. Biofuel is a type of energy derived from renewable plant and animal materials. In general, biofuels are most useful in liquid or gas form because they are easier to transport, deliver and burn cleanly. Examples of biofuels include bio-alcohols (such as bioethanol, biobutanol), biodiesel and biogas (such as biomethane, biohydrogen). In this Special Issue of Chemengineering, we want to offer a platform for high-quality publications on these various aspects of bio-fuels production. 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.
