We are pleased to invite you to submit a research paper or a review paper to a Special Issue of the journal Energies on the topic of “Bioenergy from Organic Waste”.
Organic waste produced in the agricultural, industrial and municipal sectors is a valuable material that is turning into the core business of biorefineries. From organic waste, and in particular from food waste, agricultural residue, food-processing waste and wastewater sludge, it is possible to recover a wide range of bioproducts, such as biofuels (biomethane, biohydrogen, biohythane, biodiesel) and resources (nutrients, bioplastics, volatile fatty acids and other high-added-value bioproducts). Nowadays, the challenge is to boost the biological conversion of organic waste, both by strengthening most applied technologies and by implementing innovative processes, fostering sustainable solutions with low environmental impact, including sustainable pre-treatment techniques.
This Special Issue is seeking original contributions regarding recent developments and ideas in the transformation of organic waste valorisation for energy recovery. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following: optimisation of the anaerobic digestion and co-digestion processes, dark fermentation, municipal and agricultural waste valorisation technologies, wastewater and organic waste integrated treatments, organic waste pre-treatment, microbial fuel cells, microalgae–wastewater integrated systems, and life-cycle assessment of waste treatment processes.

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.
