Sustainable Processes

A section of Processes (ISSN 2227-9717).

Section Information

The Section Sustainable Processes of the journal Processes is the ideal forum for publishing significant research of high quality and high impact as well as good reviews. The concept of sustainability is based on three main pillars that relate to the societal, environmental, and economic impacts of production processes incorporating the Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations. Today, the development and operation of industrial processes need to progressively incorporate sustainability objectives. This requires the development of sustainability metrics able to assess process performance and guide the selection of technology alternatives. On the other hand, new processes need to be developed improving the overall sustainability performance of supply chains and products. Submitted papers should embrace, for example, the proposal of innovative design methods for sustainability, innovative sustainability metrics, holistic approaches to assessing sustainability performance, and new, safe, as well as sustainable process technologies. Both fundamental research and industrial case studies are of interest to this Section. All manuscripts submitted for publication in this Section will undergo the usual high-quality peer review process of Processes and, if accepted, will be rapidly published online.
