Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Almost one third of the planet’s land surface is currently used for agricultural activities (FAO, 2014). These agricultural activities produce large amounts of organic residues and waste that can be used in various sustainable ways, e.g., in energy production or as biomaterials and biochemicals. It is well known that the use of agricultural biomass for the above purposes has increased over the last years. However, the increased use of agricultural biomass has generated a large number of issues that need to be tackled. At the top of this agenda are issues related to sustainability and supply chain management, as they can provide flexibility and competitive advantages. The present Special Issue of Energies aims to collect innovative ideas, solutions, decision-making frameworks and tools, experimental research, and state-of-the-art studies on sustainable biomass supply chain management in the agricultural sector.
