Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to an Energies Special Issue titled "From Unidisciplinary to Multidisciplinary Energy Research”, publishing selected papers from the 2nd ICEIT 2021 jointly with SICTAS, scheduled to be published in 2020.

Selected papers from the 2nd International Conference on Engineering and Industrial Technology (http://www.iceitsu.org/Home/Home.aspx) in Conjunction with the Silpakorn International Conference on Total Art and Science 2021 (http://www.sictas.org/Home/Home.aspx), to be held in Bangkok, Thailand on November 3–5, 2020 will be considered for this Special Issue.

The 2nd International Conference on Engineering and Industrial Technology 2021 (ICEIT 2021) is organized by the Faculty of Engineering and Industrial Technology, Silpakorn University, Thailand together with seven co-hosts: Chengdu University, China; National Institute of Technology, Toyota college, Japan; Yamaguchi University, Japan; Kumamoto University, Japan; Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Malaysia; Bio-Circular-Green-economy Technology & Engineering Center (BCGeTEC) and Center of Excellence on Catalysis and Catalytic Reaction Engineering (CECC) of Chulalongkorn University, Thailand; and the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand.

In this year, the 2nd ICEIT 2021 will be held in conjunction with SICTAS 2021 on 3–5 November 2021 at Pathumwan Princess Hotel AND Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, Bangkok, Thailand. This is a part of Reinventing University project granted by Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation, Thailand.

The 2nd ICEIT 2021 is a major international conference bringing together researchers, engineers, and practitioners who work in the areas of engineering and industrial technology with a wide spectrum of scientific themes, while the aim of SICTAS is to share and exchange experiences and research findings in all areas, including science and technology, art, and social science.

In this Special Issue, we seek to include comprehensive review papers, methodologies, experimental works, and modeling research articles that could improve our understandings from unidisciplinary and multidisciplinary energy-related research. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: alternative and renewable energy, fuel processing technology, environment, carbon capture and utilization (CCU), and climate change.

P.S.

After the 2nd ICEIT 2021 and SICTAS 2021 conferences, you are welcome to submit your full paper to this Special Issue (From Unidisciplinary to Multidisciplinary Energy Research, Selected papers from 2nd ICEIT and SICTAS 2021). There is no need to wait for the submission deadline. All papers accepted for publication will be immediately published.

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.

Coconut shells, low-cost and renewable agro-wastes, were used as a starting material in the synthesis of hierarchical activated carbons via hydrothermal, KOH-activation, and carbonization techniques. The ratio of KOH to hydrochar was varied in a systemic manner to study how it influences the texture and electrochemical behavior of the capacitor. Coconut shell-based carbon coated on nickel foams presented a surface area of 1567 m2 g−1, with micropores as well as mesopores widely distributed. The sample showed superior electrochemical performance, attaining 449 F g−1 at 1 A g−1 in 6 M LiNO3 aqueous solution. The solid-state symmetric supercapacitor device delivered a specific capacitance of 88 F g−1 at 1 A g−1 and a high energy density of 48.9 Whkg−1 at a power density of 1 kW kg−1. At a wide voltage window of 2.0 V, the sample was highly stable during the cycle test, showing a 92% capacitance retention at 2 A g−1 after cycling for 5000 times. The superior performance is due to the sample possessing great BET surface area, a good distribution of pores, and the usage of a suitable electrolyte. This facilitates an electrical double layer that can be deployed for applications to store energy. Full article
