“Biomass Chars: Elaboration, Characterization and Applications Ⅱ”is a continuation of the previous and successful Special Issue “Biomass Chars: Elaboration, Characterization and Applications”.
Biomass can be converted to energy, biofuels, and bioproducts via thermochemical conversion processes, such as combustion, pyrolysis, and gasification. Combustion technology is the most widely applied on an industrial scale. However, biomass gasification and pyrolysis processes are still in research and development stage. The major products from these processes are syngas, bio-oil and char (called also biochar for agronomic application). Among these products, biomass chars have received an increasing attention for different applications, such as gasification, co-combustion, catalysts or adsorbents precursor, soil amendment, carbon fuel cells, supercapacitors.
This Special Issue provides an overview for biomass chars production methods (pyrolysis, hydrothermal carbonization, etc.), the characterization techniques (Scanning Electronic Microscopy, X-Ray Fluorescence, Nitrogen adsorption, Raman Spectroscopy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Temperature Programmed Desorption and Mass Spectrometry, etc.), their properties and their suitable recovery 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.
