Special Issue Information

Low carbon technologies (LCT) are key for further economic progress and stronger climate change mitigation ambition. Therefore, it is important to monitor progress towards LCT deployment and understand technological development and gaps.

This Special Issue of Applied Sciences aims at bringing together the most recent research activities in the area of low carbon technologies deployment in various sectors (industry, services, transport, etc.) and application of technologies to the challenges created by climate change.

The topics of interest for this Special issue include but are not limited to:

  • Innovative and emerging new technologies;
  • Hybrid technologies (e.g., solar thermal power and solar desalination; biogas and solar);
  • Process optimization with carbon reduction in industry;
  • Advancements in key components;
  • Waste and electricity management;
  • Techniques to improve efficiency and its reliability;
  • Simulation, optimization, and analysis tools;
  • Integrated approaches;
  • Low carbon practices in the service and industrial sectors;
  • Environmental impact mitigation;
  • Low carbon power system (e.g., fuel cell power, advanced gas turbine power system);
  • Waste to energy cycle system.

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. 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 1800 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.
