Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Mediterranean Congress of Chemical Engineering (MeCCE) is a triennial event that has been taking place in Barcelona since 1978 in the framework of the trade fair EXPOQUIMIA. The event gathers at the premises of Fira de Barcelona chemical engineers from the academy and the industry visiting the industrial exhibition, presenting and sharing new ideas, and networking.

After the parenthesis of the 10th World Congress of Chemical Engineering (held also in Barcelona in 2017), the Spanish Society of Industrial Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (SEQUI), the Catalan Association of Industrial Engineers (AEIC), and the Chemical Institute of Sarrià (Institut Químic de Sarrià, IQS) established an alliance to undertake the organization of this 14th edition, aimed at renovation and further internationalization.

However, 2020 will be undoubtedly remembered because of the way COVID-19 altered our lives and the way of working worldwide, including also MeCCE and EXPOQUIMIA, which had to be re-scheduled and re-designed. In these circumstances, the very basic concept of “congress” faced new threats and opportunities, and the way we face most of the specific Congress topics, such as biomedical engineering, supply chain management or training and education, was also significantly affected. All these issues were inevitably part of the 14th MeCCE.

This Special Issue is coordinated with the 14th MeCCE Scientific Committee, and it includes selected papers from this conference. This Special Issue focuses on, but is not limited to, papers that align with the topics of the conference:

Advances and results in chemical engineering science:

  • Chemical reactors and separation technologies;
  • Processes intensification and process systems engineering;

their applications in:

  • sustainable development and environmental engineering;
  • food, biochemical and biomedical engineering;
  • process and product engineering;

and the provision of Chemical Engineering solutions to the society by responsible research, innovation and introduction of new developments, products, and processes to the market.

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. 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 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 31 December 2020 an APC of 2000 CHF applies. 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.
