Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The modern trends of the food industry include (a) consumer interest for novel and sustainable products (resulting from new era lifestyles and higher available incomes); (b) the scarcity of available resources (e.g., raw materials); and (c) the urgency to address significant environmental issues. Under this context, food scientists are seeking innovative solutions that can guarantee a year-round supply of high-quality, diverse, and sustainable products. Τhe aim of this Special Issue is to highlight state-of-the-art processes and applications of sustainable solutions in the food industry. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Waste and by-product bioconversion to added-value chemicals that can be incorporated in food matrices;
- Extraction of substances using green chemistry principles;
- Development of new sustainable food production processes;
- Modeling and simulation of sustainable food production processes.
Therefore, original research papers and literature reviews are invited for submission to this Special Issue to enhance the insights on sustainable approaches in the food industry and the synergy among biotechnology, bioprocessing, and food engineering.

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. 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 1900 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.
