Interests: power converters; circuits and systems; non-thermal food processing systems
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
For the past few decades, non-thermal food processing is receiving much attention, because nutritious and fresh processed foods can be provided. Furthermore, in recent years, the techniques are extensively investigated concerning nutritive food quality, microbiological safety, drying, extraction, and enzyme inactivation including novel non-thermal processing techniques. In the area of non-thermal food processing, this special issue covers various topics such as pulsed electric field, ultrasonication, ionizing radiation, high hydrostatic pressure, plasma sterilization, pulse light, microfiltration, ultraviolet light, magnetic field heating and moderate field heating, high-voltage electrical discharge and gliding arc discharge, etc. The state-of-the-art developments of non-thermal processing on foods, such as vegetables, fruits, meat, fish, cereal products, etc., is discussed in this special issue. Unlike existing literatures, the purpose of this special issue is to collect articles that describe the state-of-the-art in mentioned area and to attract researchers dealing with unresearched topics. Food scientists, food engineers, food product developers and food industry personnel will be able to find a lot of valuable information from this special issue.

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.
