Special Issue "Advanced Biorefining: Advances in Co-production of Renewable Biomaterials and Biofuels"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2019).
Interests: biofuels; biomaterials; biorefining; integrated processing; biocomposites; sustainability
One of the major hurdles for the deployment of both advanced biomaterials and biofuels is the introduction of a new product into established marketplaces that have optimized incumbent products. One promising approach to overcome the economic barriers to marketplace entry is the integrated co-production of high value biomaterials and biofuels through biorefining approaches. Over the past decade, in the United States, Europe, and the rest of the world, efforts have begun to focus on these integrated approaches with the production of nano-structured materials, carbon fibers, and other carbonaceous materials along with 2nd generation and advanced biofuels. With an increasing focus on products and processes with ever increasing carbon emission efficiency the next decade promises development and deployment of these new materials and fuels at an increasing pace. This Special Issue, will explore state-of-the-art progress in the areas of technology development, techno-economic evaluation, environmental impact and sustainability from the multidisciplinary scientific community developing these new advanced bioproducts.Prof. David Bressler
