Special Issue "Thermochemical Biorefining"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 January 2019)
Prof. Lasse Rosendahl
Thermochemical biorefining holds enormous potential for sustainable production of carbonaceous chemicals and fuels; sustainable in terms of economic, environmental and resource efficiency. Within this scope, virtually all organic streams, be they wet/dry, virgin/residual, aquatic/terrestrial, flora/fauna-derived can be processed alone or in mixtures to intermediate platform chemicals and precursors, intermediate fuel products, such as syngas or bio-oils and, from there, efficiently converted to synthetic hydrocarbons or higher alcohols. However, challenges in implementation, process understanding, design and upscaling, identifying and alleviating bottlenecks in process flows, exist within all, as do significant challenges in establishing and documentating sustainability in its full meaning.
The scope of this Special Issue is to present the state-of-the-art within sustainable thermochemical biorefining for fuels and chemicals, and to highlight opportunities within sustainable processing realisable by these pathways.Prof. Lasse Rosendahl
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.
