Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Chemists have a huge responsibility in the transition toward sustainable development that balances the environment, society, and economy. New strategies for the production of materials and renewable energy need to be found that have environmental protection and remediation at their core. This is one of the defining challenges of the 21st century and it is clear that impactful results can only be reached through collaboration between scientific, engineering, and non-scientific disciplines, with each discipline contributing its own point of view.

This Special Issue is focused on sustainable chemistry innovations in energy engineering and cleaner materials production. We welcome contributions from scholars who want to share their results on the chemical aspects of sustainable materials production and energy engineering. Thus, materials for sustainable energy is a main topic; however, the Special Issue is more broadly focused on the production of clean materials. Energy efficiency of production is also a topic as well as other important issues, such as reducing environmental impacts, and easier end-of-life recycling. The goal of the Special Issue is to showcase and help define the wide variety of contributions that sustainable chemistry can make to clean materials production and energy engineering. This includes small-scale lab research work but also scale-up and technology transfer and embedding in industry.

We also encourage authors who have presented an article at the International Conference on Innovations in Energy Engineering and Cleaner Production (IEECP’22) and who feel that their contribution is within the scope of interest of Sustainable Chemistry to apply through “Submit Abstract to Special Issue”. The selected authors will be asked to submit an original and essential extension of the IEECP’22 paper to be considered for publication.

The IEECP’22 aims to investigate innovation applications and the latest research in the areas of energy production, alternative and renewable energy supply, energy savings analysis, cleaner production, the optimization of energy processes, and environmental impacts. This year, the IEECP Annual Conference will take place in Oxford, UK, on 21–22 July 2022 and has been supported by Sustainable Chemistry.

All submissions to Sustainable Chemistry will undergo rigorous peer review. More details can be found at “Instruction for Authors”.

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. Sustainable Chemistry is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
