Alternative and renewable energy sources play a very decisive role in the development of human society. They contribute to fulfilling the increasing energy demands from both industrialized and under development countries, as well as economic needs, which must comply with a decarbonized economy and decrease the energy impact on the global environment. Among these alternative energy sources, fuels such as biodiesel, methanol and methane are good examples of how the previous design could be achieved, as these fuels can be obtained from renewable sources, used in applications such as transportation systems, electricity generation, fuel conversion, and even electricity storage, with a reduced impact on air emissions.
Although a great deal of research has been done and there have important advances in recent years, there is a need to increase the research. In particular, there is a need for the further development of new approaches, and their optimization and practical compatibilization with existing systems, so that they are cost competitive and truly effective and will be adopted by energy stakeholders.
For this Special Issue, we invite papers on new and innovative technical developments or approaches, reviews, case studies, as well as assessments, and papers from different disciplines, which are relevant to the optimization of biodiesel and methane/methanol production systems, simultaneously resulting in air quality improvement.
Prof. Dr. João Fernando Pereira Gomes
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.
