Applied Industrial Technologies

A section of Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417).

Section Information

This section focuses on industrial smart and sustainable technologies and processes oriented towards practical applications.

It focuses on smart industrial systems, and related environmental and sustainability research and practice. Through our published articles, we aim at helping societies become more sustainable. It has the aims of waste valorization and increasing efficiencies in the uses of energy, water, and resources, within an industrial symbiosis and circular economy perspective, with special focus on the use of modern techniques aligned with the Industry 4.0 strategy. By contrast, works focusing on more theoretical developments should be addressed to more specialized journals.

The section publishes original papers, review articles, technical notes, and letters to the editor. Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts that bridge the gaps between applied research, development, and implementation. Download Section Flyer
