Special Issue "Byproducts, Waste Biomass and Products to form Green Diesel and Bio Crude Oils"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2020.
Interests: thermochemical conversion of nonfood, non-usable oleochemical feedstocks biofuels’ byproducts, waste biomass, and waste products (plastics, tires, MSW, etc.) to form green diesel and bio crude oils: Bio crude oil characterization; upgradation of bio-oils and biochar through catalytic process, extraction, and other processes: Biobased lubricant and additives development for industrial applications
Interests: heterogenous catalysis; catalytic biomass conversion; hydrorefinning of bio-oils; heavy oils/residues hydroprocessing; catalyst deactivation
We would like to invite the submission of original research or review articles to a Special Issue of the journal Energies in the topics of byproducts, waste biomass, and products to form green diesel and bio crude oils. Renewable diesel and bio crude oils are environmentally benign and highly promising as an alternative to fossil oils. These products will have a significant share in future global energy portfolios and in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The conversion technologies, system integration approaches, and life cycle impacts of bio-derived fuels can vary widely because of the large diversity of biomass feedstocks. However, the main challenges associated with biomass conversion processes are feedstock variability, the pre-treatment processes involved, land use concerns, and high production costs, which hinder their broad-scale market acceptance. Thus, new conversion technologies are expected to increase the production potential by allowing for the use of an array of waste biomass feeds (agricultural residues, forest residues, and industrial residues) and byproducts produced from current biomass conversion processes.
This Special Issue aims to encourage researchers to address recent progress in the biorefinery and biotransformation technologies for waste biomass conversion processes. Studies of advanced techniques and methods for green diesel and bio crude oil productions are highly encouraged.Dr. Brajendra K. Sharma

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 1800 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.
