Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The alarming level of waste generation has urged more studies and research to focus on approaches related to waste management, product life cycle assessment, and circular economy. Circular economy frameworks offer an opportunity for various technological innovations. This resource-efficient model emphasizes eliminating waste and makes the entire economy more sustainable through waste reuse, reduction, and recycling. Numerous efforts have been devoted to minimizing the environmental impacts of a wide range of material production and industrial processes. These efforts include reducing the use of chemicals or using green solvents as alternatives to hazardous solvents. Developing sustainable, bio-based, and biodegradable materials is another straightforward strategy for achieving this goal.

This Special Issue aims at collecting a compilation of articles, which covers research articles, reviews, and communications, with topic areas focused on waste reutilization, green material synthesis, and sustainable processes for energy and environmental applications. We are pleased to invite you to submit your original manuscript to this Special Issue. 

Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Waste reutilization for material synthesis;
  • Waste conversions via bioremediation;
  • Green solvent for material synthesis;
  • Green manufacturing;
  • Life cycle analysis for sustainable waste conversions;
  • Water and wastewater treatment;
  • Biofuel and bioenergy;
  • Hydrogen production and utilization;
  • Hydrogen storage and transportation;
  • Renewable energy;
  • Computational studies/ modelling

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. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
