Special Issue "Adsorptive Systems for Heat Transformation and Heat Storage Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020).
Interests: chemical kinetics; catalysis; chemical engineering; adsorption for energy conversion; heat storage; heat transformation
The Guest Editors are inviting submissions for a Special Issue of Energies on the subject “Adsorptive Systems for Heat Transformation and Heat Storage Applications". To date, owing to growing living standards, heating and cooling has become one of the biggest energy sectors, which consumes nearly half of global final energy demand—more than either electricity or transport. Adsorptive heat transformation and storage (AHTS) is gaining more and more attention in the scientific community as an emerging, environmentally benign technology utilizing renewable thermal energy sources for heating and cooling. The AHTS is expected to play a crucial role in meeting the increasing heating/cooling demands of the growing population. This Issue aims to give a comprehensive insight into the state-of-the-art in the field of AHTS science and technology with a special focus on the following aspects:
- The thermodynamics and kinetics of AHTS cycles;
- Novel working pairs;
- Advanced cycles;
- Adsorption equilibrium and dynamics;
- Adsorbent bed configurations;
- Heat/mass transfer in adsorber/heat exchanger and evaporator/condenser units;
- COP and SCP enhancement;
- Compact adsorbent beds preparation;
- Testing the feasibility of AHTS cycles;
- Other related topics.

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.
