Special Issue Information
It is with pleasure that we invite you to contribute to this Special Issue with papers on the subject of dust explosions in the process industry. We know how this topic is both current and transversal to practically all productive realities and how even serious explosions continue to happen, causing huge losses. We all know well how the efforts made in studying the causes and consequences of dust explosions have brought great benefits to the process industry, but we also know that much work remains to be done.
New challenges arise continuously, for example, with the advent of nanopowders, while further investigation is required in the field of unconventional powders, such as fibrous and flocculent dust. Moreover, new technologies, including 3D printing and the use of biomass granular material to generate energy, make extensive use of powders and are likely to contribute to creating new risks related to dust explosions.
We hope that you would like to contribute to this Special Issue. Submissions on the following topics, among others, are welcome:
- Case studies;
- Non-conventional dust;
- New technologies;
- Dust parameter measurement methods;
- Ignition phenomena;
- Flame speed;
- Turbulence effect;
- Numerical modeling;
- New experimental methods;
- Dust mixtures.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
