Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The need to improve the efficiency of power generation processes is urgent. Those efforts also include proposing new processes. Advances in the combustion of fuels (gas, liquid, and solids) as well as gasification of solid ones are important aspects of such investigations. Studies related to biomass, and residues—such as municipal solid wastes—as fuels are particularly welcome. However, improvements and mitigations around the use of fossil fuels on the effects on the environment might be of interest. Theoretical as well as experimental work on predicting or measuring the rate of greenhouse and polluting gases, liquid, or solid emissions are critical to allow evaluations and decisions that consider not just efficiencies regarding power generation but also the effects on the environment. Characterization of those emissions, such as their composition, concentration, and other physical and chemical properties, would be valuable to assess their polluting effects. Methods or equipment that might decrease such emissions to the environment would also be extremely helpful to appraise the economics of proposed power generation processes.

This issue would also include mathematical modeling, or applications of existing software in the field.

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. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2000 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.
