Special Issue "Existing & Potential CO2 Re-Use: Exploring the Evolving Field"
A special issue of Resources (ISSN 2079-9276).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2021).
The rapid consumption of fossil fuels for anthropogenic activities, and the slow formation of fossil fuels, are imbalanced. A shared idea is that a method for counteracting the imbalance of the carbon cycle should involve CO2 utilization and conversion.
Several scientists are proposing carbon dioxide utilization for closing the carbon cycle, but there is no evidence that this option is always the most convenient path. More efforts are required in order to have more information for assessing all the possible ways to use CO2 as a sustainable resource. The anthropogenic emission of CO2 can be reduced with promising capture technologies and the choices for CO2 conversion are broad. CO2 can be converted into fuels, polymers, pharmaceuticals, building material, etc. Novel method for CO2 reduction are possible, and it can be used in artificial photosynthesis, electrochemical processes, selective hydrogenation, and hydrothermal processes.
The Special Issue of Resources aims to present detailed results of cutting-edge research in the fields of carbon capture, utilization and storage, including CO2 conversion to chemicals and fuels. The detailed results available from this journal are thought to be useful for researchers that will assess the net impacts of a CO2 capture and utilization (CCU) process, which can be obtained with life cycle analysis (LCA) of each specific CCU product and process. Thus, papers that include rigorous and transparent LCA are preferred.Dr. Davide Bonalumi
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. Resources 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 1600 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.
