About This Topic

Dear Colleagues,

The protection of the environment also involves the sustainability of chemical process. Biomass, as a renewable feedstock, has been gaining utmost importance since, it can be used as secondary raw material for the production of several chemicals, biofuels, added value products, biorefineries feedstock. Particular attention has to be paid to the efficiency of the process, to the use of innovative approaches, reducing the environmental impact and minimizing the energy footprint.

This Special Issue is targeted to collect quality papers about the Catalytic Biomass Conversion for the Environmental Sustainability. The SI will focus on use of heterogeneous catalysis, use of waste biomass or CO2 as secondary raw materials, innovative synthesis of materials (as for MW-assisted synthesis) applied in biomass conversion. Studies concerning the use of green procedures, both for the synthesis of materials and their applications, following the principle of circular chemistry and circular economy are strongly welcome.

I am pleased to invite you to submit manuscripts for this Special Issue on Advances in Catalytic Biomass Conversion for the Environmental Sustainability, in the form of research papers, communications, letters, and review articles.


Heterogeneous Catalysts, Innovative Material Synthesis, MW-assisted Synthesis, Green and Sustainable Methods, CO2, Biomass, Biorafinery, as a Secondary Feedstock for Sustainable Chemicals and Fuels
