Bioenergy and Biomass Utilization

Description

Today biomass energy (or “bioenergy”) is of increasing interest as a renewable, environmentally friendly alternative to energy derived from fossil fuels. Through a variety of processes, biomass can be converted to solid, liquid, or gaseous biofuels. Greater use of these biomass-based biofuels could help ease society’s dependence on fossil fuels and, in the process, reduce net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Despite potential benefits of biomass utilization, various challenges persist in the maintenance and development of biomass-to-energy utilization. We thus invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts on fundamental science and technological innovation in bioenergy and biomass utilization. We are particularly interested in articles describing solid wastes and wastewaters for energy recovery and removal, bioelectrochemical systems and their biotechnological applications, and so forth.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Bioenergy processing technologies
  • Bioenergy pilot scale process engineering
  • Biogas/biohydrogen production and purification
  • Microbial fuel cells/microbial electrosynthesis
  • Metabolic engineering
  • Enzymology
  • Novel biomass conversion technologies
  • Waste utilization for bioenergy production
  • Carbon cycle of bioenergy systems
  • Life cycle analysis of bioenergy
  • Economical evaluation of bioenergy production
