Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The world is changing faster than ever before, and technological advancement is the main driving force. Environmental sustainability, alternative energy, development of smart materials, state-of-the-art separation technology, and novel reactor and process design are the major advancing areas in recent times, to the aim of satisfying the increasing market requirements for specific end-use properties of the products required by the consumers. For the successful operation of any industrial process or plant, particularly chemical and process ones, it has become essential to consider the social impacts on environmental and sustainability issues. To achieve an environment friendly atmosphere, sustainability problems spanning multiple scales—from molecular levels through to chemical plants and finally to enterprises and the macroeconomic level—need to be addressed. In such a context of globalization vis à vis activities, services, and product impacts on the environment, sustainability may be redefined. It is, however, difficult to find useful sustainability criteria and ready-to-use guidance tools for the design of products, processes, and production systems for maintaining a balance between the environment and the ‘molecules into money’ concept. Chemical engineers have a distinctive role to play in the planning, analysis, and implementation of sustainable developments with a vision to save the environment. The articles to be published in this Special Issue are selected articles that will be presented at the International Symposium on Chemical Engineering—Environment, Sustainability and the Future, 22-24 December 2023, to be held at the University College of Science & Technology, Kolkata, India. The International aims to bring together researchers, academicians, professionals, policymakers, scientists, industry delegates, research scholars, and UG/PG students from all over the world under one roof to interact, deliberate, share, and present their research work, ideas, and innovations related to recent advances in environment, energy, sustainability, and advanced materials.

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. Processes 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 2400 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.
