Special Issue "Advances in Conversion of Biomass and Waste to Chemicals and Fuels"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019
Residual biomass and wastes are ideal and sustainable substitutes for products derived from petroleum. The development of processes for decreasing the use of non-renewable products is recent, but significant. Several new technologies are focusing processes for the production of biofuels and chemicals from different types of residual biomass or wastes. However, research on these themes is advancing extremely fast; therefore, a compilation of the latest advances in the field would be useful to connect interested authors and readers. This Special Issue aims to cover recent and emerging strategies for the development of sustainable biomass/waste conversion processes, focusing on the aspects that drive present and future research, from chemical catalysis to biocatalysis and bioprocessing. For authors, this issue will be a good opportunity to publish their original research after peer review by expert researchers of biomass/waste valorisation. Review articles by experts in such fields of research are also strongly encouraged to be submitted for publication in 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. Molecules 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 1800 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.
