Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The exceptional interest in the previous issues of Advances in Applied Thermodynamics has led to the production of a third volume of this Special Issue of Entropy.
This newest issue is focused on recent developments in thermodynamics, especially in the general fields of bio-energy, energy efficiency and sustainability. Of primary interest are papers that study the conditions appropriate to time or rate constrained processes and the conditions for optimal configurations of heat and mass exchange processes in biomass conversion processes. This may include optimization of combined cycles. The thermodynamic characterization of biomass materials is an area of interest as it is delaying the utilization of mixed biomass waste for gasification or combustion. In addition, the second law analysis of energy harvesting, chemical energy storage, utilization of liquefied natural gas (LNG) cold energy and fuel cells are of interest.
The journal will, however, welcome submissions covering a wide range of disciplines that are based upon the application of the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

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. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
