Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Highly efficient CO2 conversion and utilization technologies have played a crucial role in shifting from a fossil-based economy to a sustainable, low-carbon economy. Given the thermodynamic stability of CO2, transforming it into various value-added chemicals and fuels is highly energy-intensive. Therefore, enhancing the kinetics and conversion rate of CO2 is imperative to make CO2 utilization technologies economically viable and industrially scalable. This necessitates advanced and innovative material design and process system design for both catalytic thermal CO2 conversion and electrochemical CO2 conversion processes. In this special, we aim to collect cutting-edge findings on different CO2 utilization technologies, both through modelling and experimental analysis. We welcome contributions on CO2 utilization technologies in the form of research papers and reviews, but not limited to, the following topic areas: 

  • Catalyst and electrode materials for CO2 reduction;
  • Reaction kinetics and mechanism;
  • Electrochemical conversion of CO2;
  • Catalytic thermal conversion of CO2;
  • Reactor design;
  • CO2 mineralization;
  • CO2 for polymers;
  • CO2 for fuels;
  • CO2 activation;
  • Negative CO2 emissions;
  • Process design, integration, and control;
  • Economic evaluation;
  • Thermodynamic analysis;
  • Environmental impact analysis;
  • Molecular simulation;
  • Artificial intelligence algorithms and models.

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. Energies 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 2600 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.
