Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction has represented a pressing matter for academia, industrialists and governments all over the world. Green energy research has been significantly “energized” through the launch of zero-carbon initiatives worldwide aiming to replace conventional fossil fuel sources (natural gas/coal). Various green energies have been developed to reduce GHGs, including hydrogen, ammonia, biofuels and wind.

Hydrogen and ammonia, as green energy vectors, are considered promising future fuels. Fuel cells constitute one of the major applications of such resources. Green hydrogen and ammonia will also find application in the near future in renewable energy production. Biofuels, on the other hand, burn cleaner than gasoline and thus excel in GHG reduction.

The interest of this Special Issue, “Technology and Applications of Green Energy-based Materials”, lies within the material development and usage of green energy production, catalytic reaction, storage behavior and transport. Particular attention will be paid to engineering applications and challenges presented by the development and usage of the aforementioned materials. Commercialization aspects and the economics of such materials are also of great import and must be considered in order to realize GHG reduction.

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications and reviews are all welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • Green energy
  • Materials
  • Production
  • Catalytic reaction
  • Storage
  • Fuel cell
  • Lifecycle analysis
  • Environmental remediation

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.
