Special issue/ Biomass as a sustainable energy source


Topic: Biomass as a sustainable energy source
Abstracts submission deadline: 10 August 2018
Partner journal: Renewable Energy Journal 

We are proud to announce that a Special Issue of Renewable Energy Journal entitled 'Biomass as a sustainable energy source' will be compiled, based on a set of selected papers from the Venice 2018 Symposium.

Biomass is receiving in recent years a strong scientific attention as a sustainable energy source. In this virtual special issue (VSI) the focus will be on:

  • characterisation of biomass and waste biomass suitable for energy conversion (Lignocellulosic materials, other plant based products, algae, sewage sludge, food waste, slaughterhouse waste, etc.);
  • pretreatment for increasing performance;
  • anaerobic digestion and co-digestion of different biomass feedstocks, with generation of methane and hydrogen;
  • biorefinery processes, according to different kind of biomass, technologies, operation and production of various kind of biofuel;
  • thermal and thermochemical processes and technologies (combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, liquefaction, torrefaction, etc.) for conversion of biomass;
  • environmental impacts of biomass conversion technologies.

Guest editors: Raffaello Cossu (IT), Janguo Liu (CN), Alberto Pivato (IT) 

Renewable Energy, published by Elsevier, is an international, multi-disciplinary journal in renewable energy engineering and research. The journal aims to serve researchers, engineers, economists, manufacturers, NGOs, associations and societies to help them keep abreast of new developments in their specialist fields and to apply alternative energy solutions to current practices. We are extremely proud of this new collaboration as it offers conference delegates a further opportunity to have their work published in a indexed scientific journal (IF 4.900).
