Special Issue "Internal Combustion Engine Waste Heat Recovery"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2020).
Interests: internal combustion engines
The Guest Editor is inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of "Internal Combustion Engine Waste Heat Recovery".
Internal combustion engines operating on fossil fuel consume about 70% of the world’s oil production, thereby producing about 10% of the world’s carbon dioxide equivalent emissions. Reducing fuel consumption has therefore been the goal of vehicle manufacturers for many years in order to meet market demands and to comply with existing and future legislation. A promising way of increasing fuel efficiency is by recovering waste heat, since more than half of the supplied fuel energy is lost as waste heat (e.g., different forms of cooling losses, exhaust losses, etc.). This Special Issue will deal with different solutions for this technology, so topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:
- Thermodynamic cycles and working media;
- Turbo compounding;
- Thermoelectric generators.
Of special interest is how these systems can be integrated into a vehicle. Also, an analysis of how beneficial such a system could be (from an efficiency point of view) is important.

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.
