Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Tackling climate change is an urgent need that requires technological solutions applicable at a large scale. Contemporary research is advancing fast trying to transform a problem (i.e., CO2 emissions) into an opportunity to do things better (i.e., CO2 as a source of carbon). In this Special Issue, articles focusing on CO2 capture and further valorization are very much welcome, including, in particular, contributions on technologies that have already reached a demo or pilot plant scale. The main objective of this Special Issue is to show an overview of technological options that prove that CO2 is an available sustainable source of carbon to produce valuable products under realistic conditions that lead to net CO2 emission reduction.

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. C 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.
