Special Issue "Biodiesel Fuel Combustion"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (4 April 2022) | Viewed by 3135
Nowadays, most human activities from stationary applications (power generation, construction and industrial production, domestic heating and cooking) to transport (automotive, railway, marine and aviation) systems are reliant on conventional fuels. Hence, there is an increasing demand for fuels worldwide, which exceeds the available reserves of the depleting fossil fuels. However, the consumption of fossil fuels causes significant damage to global and regional environments, due to emission of harmful greenhouse gases. The urgent need to protect the environment from greenhouse gas emissions while maintaining energy security requires rapid responses to develop new technologies. Challenges associated with conventional energy resources have stimulated interests in renewable energy resources such as biofuel. For instance, there have been clear gaps and rushed thoughts about replacing fossil-fuel driven engines with electric-driven ones; however, these ideas have been initiated without long-term plans for such system energy resources and recycling approaches. Biodiesels and their fossil-fuel blends have now become essential bridges to the next level of renewable energy resources. It is therefore not surprising that much research continues to be done on biodiesel fuels and processes associated with their combustion. Hence, this Special Issue is motivated by the desire to collate relevant findings and solutions.
Original research findings on biodiesels for combustion will be reviewed and organised with the aim to inform a broad range of beneficiaries of the recent developments, and to provide critical analysis of the current state-of-art biodiesel fuel technologies. All articles featured in this issue will be free to view to maximise the readability and benefits to public.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
