About This Topic

This special issue will cover the biogas production as a biogenous fuel mainly considering the biomass as a starting source. Furthermore, to consider classical production methods, such as biological and thermochemical methods, we are highly interested in new research systems. The starting biomass will cover also recycled and waste materials to contribute to the “Circular Approach system”. It will be covered also all the required steps for the energy generation, considering the biogas cleaning through adsorption methods and upgrading methods to produce biomethane. All the case-studies with experimental laboratory studies, industrial prototypes and pilot plants are deeply encouraged to be considered for publication. As a resuming in this issue it is interesting to study the following topics:

  • Biogas production methods focusing on the specific method
  • Biogas production focusing on the starting biomass
  • Gas cleaning methods focusing not only on the physical adsorption processes
  • Circular approach for the biogas production and the gas cleaning systems
  • Electrical and thermal energy production using biogas as fuel
