Special Issue Information
Greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide, pose a significant threat to human societies all over the planet. The burning of fossil fuels has led to an increase in the atmospheric CO2 concentration of more than 45% relative to the pre-industrial era. In the USA alone, power plant CO2 releases comprise 55% of total CO2 emissions. Until a successful transition to renewal energy sources is accomplished, there is an urgent need for CO2 capture technologies from concentrated sources. There are also many methods that attempt to capture carbon dioxide from air or even the sea. Process intensification is a technique that reduces operating and capital costs by combining chemical reactions and separation operations, thus significantly increasing the efficiency of the process.
The goal of this Special Issue is to present novel carbon dioxide sequestration technologies that are technically feasible, cost-effective, and environmental friendly; the scope includes, new technologies and significant improvements on existent processes. Articles discussing concentrated sources and direct carbon capture technologies are welcomed, particularly process intensification processes with the potential to reduce capital and operating costs.

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 2200 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.
