I would like to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue of Energies with your recent publications, focusing on different aspects related to agricultural wastes, listed below.
Agricultural waste management has become more problematic in recent years with the increase in agricultural activities in response to human demand for agricultural products. Research has been showing great potential for converting agricultural wastes to useful energy sources. Bioenergy production from agricultural waste can be in many forms, such as biodiesel, bio-alcohol, charcoal, etc. To date, the commercialization of bioenergy production from agricultural waste has not reached the level hoped for due to different barriers and policies. Hence, it is important to address the latest developments in this area in order to provide the scientific community and industry stakeholders with updates that will serve their decision making.
The current Special Issue aims to explore how to advance the commercialization of the latest achievements in this field.
Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:
- Agricultural wastes (AW) management
- Environmental impact of WA
- Life cycle assessments of AW
- Recent developments related to AW conversion to biofuels
- Recent technologies of biofuels production
- Using AW biofuels as energy sources for power production (engines, power plant, etc.)
- The impact of AW biofuels on the current technology (tribological behavior, wear and tear of engine components)
- Cost benefit analysis
- Policies and regulations
- Barriers and future
