Lignocellulosic biomass bioenergy production, commonly referred to as Second Generation biofuels, using agricultural residues, forest residues, energy feedstocks, municipalities, and other waste crop solids, is considered to be a promising alternative energy source in order to minimize reliance on limited fossil sources, greenhouse gas emissions, and environmental pollutions. A plentiful availability of lignocellulosic materials encourages the production of numerous commodities and applications to foods, chemicals, textiles, and biofuel sources. The versatility of lignocellulosic feedstocks to be processed into value-added products combined with a valuable opportunity to maximize their returns from the crops presents an important research topic. We would like to invite submissions to this Special Issue of ChemEngineering addressing this abovementioned area of research. Potential research topics include, but are not limited to, biological materials processing; process engineering for food, biofuels and bioproducts, renewable materials, bio-based product quality assessment, biomaterials, and biochemical catalysts; and value-added processing for agriculture, food systems, natural resources, and potential crops.

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. ChemEngineering is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
