The use of biomass or organic waste material as primary resources for the production of fuels, chemicals, or electric power is gaining in importance due to the environmental issues correlated with the use of fossil fuels. For this reason, new and more efficient technologies for the conversion of biomass must be investigated and developed. Advanced methods can be used for the conversion of biomass. These methods are broadly classified into thermochemical conversion, biochemical conversion, and electrochemical conversion. This Special Issue invites papers that consider the various aspects of sustainability in biomass conversion to valuable products, covering all the technical chains from biomass production to residue management and, in particular, experimental and simulation works that investigate new processes and technologies at industrial, pilot, and bench scales.
Topics of interests include, but are not restricted to:
- New biomass resources
- Advanced processes for energetic conversion of biomass
- Bioplastic production
- Biofuel production
- Biomass pretreatment, like hydrothermal carbonization or torrefaction
- Residue management after biomass conversion
- Life cycle assessment

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. 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 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.
