Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, research on biofuel production processes from biomass raw materials has become very popular in many scientific fields. As a result of this research, the parameters for a wide range of raw materials, as well as the influence of biomass parameters and process conditions on the properties of a final product were uncovered, and new technologies are being developed. However, many questions and uncertainties remain. This is due to the diversity of raw material origin, the variety of final products (solid, liquid, and gaseous biofuels), and the multitude of technologies used. Once a greater understanding is obtained in these areas, it will be possible to fully utilize the biomass potential and effectively conduct production processes to obtain high-quality biofuels with minimal effort.

This Special Issue will focus on biomass pretreatment and the production and optimization processes of biofuels, with respect to process costs, while maintaining high product quality. We, therefore, invite papers on biomass pretreatment technology, innovative biofuels production technology, modeling and optimization studies, reviews, and case studies. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Technical, economic, and environmental aspects of solid, liquid, and gaseous biofuels production;
  • Optimization of biofuels production processes;
  • Impact of raw material processing on product parameters;
  • Ensuring high-quality biofuels;
  • Technology assessment;
  • Processes modeling, forecasting, and optimization techniques.

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.
