Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Environmental sustainability and cleaner production are hot topics for the scientific community as well as for society, and scientists have a huge responsibility in the transition toward sustainable development. Sustainability covers three main aspects of our living, i.e., the environment, economy, and society, and thus, these three aspects should all be taken into consideration when performing sustainable research.

The Sustainability Development Goals can be reached only through a collaboration between different scientific and non-scientific disciplines, although each discipline gives its own contribution from a different aspect. The main role of chemistry concerns i) sustainable production of new materials, ii) sustainable processes for environmental protection and remediation, and iii) sustainable industrial processes.

The International Conference on Innovations in Energy Engineering and Cleaner Production (IEECP’21) 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, optimization of energy processes, and environmental impacts. This year, the IEECP Annual Conference will take place virtually in Silicon Valley, San Francisco, California, USA on 29–30 July 2021 and has been supported by the journal of Sustainable Chemistry.

We encourage authors who have presented an article at IEECP’21 and who feel that their contribution is within the scope of interest of the journal 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’21 paper to be considered for publication no later than 30 November 2021. More details can be found at “Instruction for Authors”. All submissions to Sustainable Chemistry would go through rigorous peer review.

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. 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.
