Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The process intensification principles applied to chemical engineering may drive the development of new processes with benefits in terms of more compact and efficient devices, lower energy consumption and reduced plant volume. Membrane reactor technology pursues the valorization of these principles and, in the last three decades, the growing interest towards membrane reactors was largely recognized, representing a valuable option to the conventional systems.

Hydrogen represents a new energy carrier, an alternative to the derivatives of fossil fuel exploitation. Meanwhile, renewable source utilization for producing hydrogen via reforming reactions may represent a viable approach to avoid the depletion of fossil fuels.

Within this context, the aim of this Special Issue is to propose a collection of membrane reactor applications to generate hydrogen from renewables via reforming reactions. Hence, modeling and experimental articles, as well as a limited number of reviews dealing with the recent advancements on the topics of this Special Issue are particularly expected.

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. Membranes 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 1000 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.
