Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Currently, one of the most important sources of renewable energy is biomass. The use of biomass as fuel is associated with its earlier preparation for combustion. The energy and environmental efficiency of the combustion or gasification process depends on the design of the heating boiler, gas discharge system and fuel quality. Water content and impurities are the two main factors affecting the quality of biomass fuel. The calorific value of the biomass depends on humidity. Proper fragmentation and storage after harvesting are very important in the comprehensive technology of using wood biomass for energy purposes.

We cordially invite you to publish new studies regarding agricultural, wood, municipal and waste biomass in the field of:

  1. Types and material properties of biomass;
  2. Methods of biomass preparation and properties of the obtained product;
  3. Ways of using biomass materials;
  4. New biomass processing technologies;
  5. Modeling of phenomena occurring in biomass material.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Materials 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 2300 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.
