Special Issue Information
An enormous amount of waste is produced globally every year that attracts people’s concern in terms of waste management, cost and pollution. There is a need to develop advanced technologies to manage these wastes. Thermo-chemical conversion, including pyrolysis and the catalytic gasification of carbonaceous wastes, is a promising technology compared to traditional waste treatment options (e.g., incineration and landfill). The process promotes the sustainable management of carbonaceous waste and realizes the potential value of these wastes. Pyrolysis–catalysis/catalytic gasification of carbonaceous waste processes is a promising and effective route to convert waste materials into profitable liquid, gaseous and solid products, and catalysts play an important role in these processes. As there are many products produced through thermo-chemical conversion of carbonaceous waste, the development of the technique is focused on the development of a catalyst and the production of valuable products which have great potential to reach higher recovery rates or economic values. The research scope in this Special Issue is not only limited to thermo-chemical process, but also includes other advanced techniques, such as hydrothermal, hydrolysis, and biological catalysis (e.g., fermentation) approaches.

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. Catalysts 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 2200 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.
