Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We recently ran a Special Issue entitled "Clean Technologies in Food Processing and Waste Management" that matched your lines of research, and would like to cordially invite you to publish your most recent research as a full-length or review article.

The growing demand for food, caused by the more than eight million habitants on the planet, fast-paced lifestyles and long working hours, has generated a high growth in the production of ready-to-eat and minimally processed foods. However, they must be innocuous, with a long shelf life, free of synthetic additives and be sensorially acceptable. This generates greater challenges in the efficiency of production processes, which reduce or eliminate the amount of contaminants, achieve an integral use of raw materials through the revalorization of agroindustrial wastes and use clean processing technologies. For this reason, it is necessary to generate policies and practices that promote the combination of technologies and innovation in order to achieve a circular economy throughout food processing and the supply chain through the use of clean processing technologies and waste revalorization.

With this Special Issue, "Clean Technologies in Food Processing and Waste Management", we aim to explore, examine and propose clean technologies, as well as efficient management strategies, for the treatment of agroindustrial waste, in order to generate a culture of integral use through the circular economy in food processing systems. For this reason, it is important to verify which are the main waste disposal problems, which processing stages produce waste, how the waste is treated and explore possible alternatives through clean technologies to reduce and/or eliminate agroindustrial waste, revalue it or incorporate it back into the value chain.

This Special Issue is specifically dedicated to works related to food processing, clean technologies and the use, management and approach of agroindustrial wastes for their revalorization and integration into the food chain. Based on your expertise and recent publications, we believe that you would provide an excellent contribution.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2400 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.
