In this world of depleting natural resources, increasing energy demand, and severe environmental issues, the development of materials and processes for sustainable energy and environmental systems is of special importance. Numerous advancements have been made in terms of low-emission energy systems development as well as greenhouse gas emission mitigation, waste valorization into added value products, and energy efficiency improvements in various sectors of the economy. The progress in rational and efficient resource use as well as in the development of advanced functional materials for energy and environmental applications is evident. Nevertheless, a more interdisciplinary approach in power, material, chemical, and environmental engineering is still needed to build up a synergetic effect for a sustainable future.
The aim of this Special Issue entitled “Materials and Processes for Sustainable Energy and Environmental Systems” is to present the recent advancements in various aspects related to materials and processes contributing to the creation of sustainable power systems and environmental solutions, particularly applicable to clean energy developments. These include materials and engineering processes for clean coal technologies, carbon capture and utilization, hydrogen economy, functional carbon materials, advanced energy materials, as well as waste and by-products valorization in energy systems and environmental engineering.
The authors of full research papers, communications, and review papers are invited to contribute to 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. 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 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.
