Biorefineries are one of the vectors of change that should lead the transition to a bioeconomy-based society. The ability of using and completely valorizing the available biomass resources will contribute to covering our energy and material needs in a more sustainable way. In this context, the development of efficient biomass conversion technologies is a key point for achieving the economic viability of biorefineries. Among the different technologies, fermentation-based processes have the potential to obtain both sustainable biofuels (bioethanol, biobutanol, etc.) and industrially relevant high-added value bioproducts (xylitol, lactic acid, etc.) from a wide variety of lignocellulosic biomass.
This Special Issue aims to offer a broad perspective on the role that fermentation processes play in innovative biorefinery routes and the portfolio of products that can be obtained, including biofuels and other interesting high-added value chemicals. We welcome manuscripts including, but not limited, to the following topics:
- Study of novel raw materials for the production of biofuels and bioproducts through fermentation processes (e.g., urban and industrial wastes);
- Study of new fermentative strains and fermentation strategies to produce biofuels and bioproducts
- Development of integrated concepts for biofuels and bioproducts obtained through fermentation-based processes
- Techno-economic assessment of biorefinery concepts
- Life-cycle assessments of biorefinery concepts

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. Fermentation 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.
