Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

GPE 2016 is the 5th International Congress on Green Process Engineering. The first four congresses have been extremely successful (Toulouse in 2007, Venice in 2009, Kuala Lumpur in 2011, and Seville in 2014) and have attracted between 200 and 350 participants from academia, industry, and research organizations from around the world. A similar success is expected for the fifth International Congress on Green Process Engineering. The conference venue is the Fairmont Hotel in Mt. Tremblant, Quebec, Canada, a superb mountain resort location which provides an environment favoring knowledge exchange, networking, the generation of new ideas, and the acceleration of applications that will benefit society.

GPE 2016 will provide an exceptionally stimulating international forum for presentation of commercial applications, emerging technologies and scientific advancements in the area of green process engineering.

The format of the congress will be of a “retreat-style”. There will be no parallel sessions in order to allow all participants to attend and contribute to all presentations. Apart from two plenary lectures of 30 minutes each, the regular contributions will consist of short oral presentations (15 minutes) to be delivered in a large ballroom. Each presentation, however, will also be accompanied by a poster, to be presented normally after dinner. The poster session will allow ample time for informal discussions. Additional free-forum poster presentations will also be invited.

Networking time will be scheduled during each early afternoon. This will allow participants to engage in informal discussions and to spend time together enjoying the many beautiful outdoors activities available at Mt. Tremblant (hiking, beach time, canoeing, walking around the village, golfing, etc.).

The conference timeline will extend from Sunday afternoon to mid-day on Friday.

The main themes for GPE 2016 are:

  • Sustainable Energies
  • Integrated Biorefineries
  • Novel Catalytic and Bio-catalytic Processes
  • New Reaction Media and Clean Solvents
  • Process Design and Development
  • Process Intensification (Multifunctional reactors, Micro-structured reactors, Heat exchanger/reactors, Reaction/separation coupling (Membrane reactors, Adsorptive reactors, Reactive distillation, Reactive extraction)
  • Modeling and optimization (Experimental design, Optimal design, Advanced process control)
  • Economic and Environmental Evaluation of Green Processes
  • Green Process Engineering Education
  • Safety, Risk Management and Environmental Protection
  • New Opportunities in Green Process Engineering

All contributors to the conference are invited to submit manuscripts describing their work for possible publication in a Special Issue of Processes.

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 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 2000 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.
