Lead Guest Editor:
Yu Ji, Beijing University of Chemical Technology

The development of biorefinery and green biomanufacturing technologies is critical to address the growing demand for sustainable and renewable sources of energy, chemicals, and materials. Biorefinery and green biomanufacturing systems aim to convert renewable biomass resources into a range of valuable products, including biofuels, biochemicals, biopolymers, and biomaterials. These systems often incorporate multiple processing steps, including biomass pretreatment, enzymatic hydrolysis, fermentation, and downstream processing, to maximize the efficiency of product generation while minimizing waste and energy use.

The International Conference on Biorefinery and Biomanufacturing (ICBB) was held in Sandiago, Chile between 13-17th of January 2025, bringing together researchers, engineers, and industry professionals to discuss recent advances and challenges in this field. To continue this important conversation, Bioresources and Bioprocessing (BIOB), an international journal ranked recently into JCR Q1 category (with a two-year Impact Factor of 4.3), is now accepting submissions for a thematic issue on "Biorefinery and Green Biomanufacturing". This issue aims to highlight recent research and development efforts related to biorefinery and green biomanufacturing technologies, including but not limited to:

  • Development of new enzymes and microbial strains for efficient conversion of biomass to biofuels and chemicals;
  • Integration of biorefinery and green biomanufacturing technologies for the production of value-added products;
  • Life cycle assessment and techno-economic analysis of biorefinery and green biomanufacturing systems;
  • Upstream and downstream processing for the recovery and purification of biorefinery and green biomanufacturing products.

We warmly welcome submissions of original research articles, short reports, and literature reviews on these and other topics related to biorefinery and green biomanufacturing. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer review to ensure scientific quality and relevance to the scope of this thematic issue.

BIOB is an SCI-indexed, open-access journal published by the Springer-Nature group. The newest 2-year Impact Factor of BIOB (2023) is 4.3, ranking No. 41/174 in the JCR category of Biotechnology and Applied Microbiology. This thematic issue will provide an excellent platform for researchers and industry professionals to share their latest findings and insights on biorefinery and green biomanufacturing, as well as to promote the development and deployment of sustainable and renewable energy and material systems.

The date open for submission to the Thematic Issue of Biorefinery and Green Biomanufacturing: From Now On;

Until the deadline: June 30, 2025.
