Throughout the world, governments are anticipating the elimination of the use of conventional fuels in internal combustion (IC) engines starting in 2030 or 2035. Although they refer to the "end of combustion engines", what is actually needed is the reduction of CO2 emissions and pollutant emissions, which would be encouraged by the use of electric vehicles. Such reductions in emissions and pollutants could also potentially be achieved by adapting IC engines to the use of biofuels (CO2) and the refinement of combustion and exhaust (other pollutants) via treatment.
This Special Issue of Energies will focus on the necessary measures and processes required to invert this trend toward the elimination of IC engine use in our cars. Papers on new trends in combustion, ignition, alternative and/or novel types of cycles, hybrid (of SI and CI) combustion, and, obviously, new biofuels are welcome in this Special Issue.

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 2000 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.
