Engineering | Aims and Scope: Waste and Biomass Valorization

Aims and Scope: Waste and Biomass Valorization

Waste & Biomass Valorization is devoted to the growing field of valorization of waste and biomass to energy, fuels and other useful materials, with emphasis on processes and practices that reduce emissions and life cycle assessment of technologies and materials. Research on the characterization of fuels and materials produced as well as those on the development of characterization techniques will be also welcomed. Topic areas to be covered by the journal include, but are not limited to:

Valorization of waste and biomass

    • municipal,
    • wastewater
    • industrial,
    • electronic,
    • wood and paper,
    • sludge,
    • agricultural,
    • forest,
    • construction and demolition,
    • mining

Valorization of energy and fuels

    • ethanol,
    • hydrogen,
    • biogas,
    • biofuel,
    • refuse-derived Fuel/Oil (RD, RDO),
    • thermal processes products

Valorization of materials

    • raw materials,
    • secondary materials,
    • recycled materials

Key issues will be cutting-edge research on life cycle and risk assessment, health and safety impact assessment, decision-making, legislation and education.

High quality research articles, reviews, case studies (both pilot-plant and full-scale) will be accepted for review.

The Journal will promote interdisciplinarity and bridging of various fields of engineering science including Environmental, Chemical, Civil Engineering, and Management Science. The Journal will also be of interest to non-academic groups such as industry, local and national government interested in the beneficial use and reuse of residues, biomass and waste.
