Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Technological development and societal transformation are essential to face current challenges and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Researchers and technology developers thus play a critical role in providing novel sustainable solutions to reduce energy consumption, environmental pollution, and the use of water and non-renewable resources. Clean Technologies is an international journal whose aim is to show the most promising advances in sustainable technology. In this Special Issue called “Feature Papers”, we aim at outstanding contributions in the main fields covered by the journal:

  • Chemical and biochemical engineering;
  • Product and process engineering;
  • Membrane technology;
  • Environmental technology for treatment of wastewater, flue gases and solid waste;
  • Zero-waste technology;
  • CO2 capture and (re)utilization technologies;
  • Green chemistry;
  • Cleaner production and technical processes;
  • Clean energies;
  • Energy-saving technology;
  • Microreaction and microseparation technology;
  • Life cycle assessment.

We look forward to receiving your contribution.

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. Clean Technologies 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 1200 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.

In remote areas, extending a power line to the primary electricity grid can be very expensive and power losses are high, making connections to the grid almost impossible. A well-designed microgrid that integrates renewable energy resources can help remote areas reduce investment costs and power losses while providing a reliable power source. Therefore, investigating the design of an independent and economically practical microgrid system for these areas is necessary and plays an important role. This paper introduces a design procedure to design an isolated microgrid using HOMER software (HOMERPro 3.14.5) for remote areas. In Vietnam, due to the obstruction of the mountainous terrain or the isolated island location, many remote areas or islands need electrification. A simple case study of a hybrid system with a 60 kW peak load demand on Con Dao island in Vietnam is used to illustrate the proposed design method. Specifically, a hybrid system that includes a PV system, batteries, and a diesel generator is designed. To provide the full information of the designed hybrid system designed, each solution is analyzed and evaluated in detail according to the sensitivity parameters. Full article
