Waste Biorefineries

Bioresources and Bioprocessing welcomes submissions to the thematic series on Waste Biorefineries.

To solve the problem of waste treatment, developing a systematic work of how to efficiently convert waste to value-added products is gaining attention in reent days. To enhance the economic feasibility of waste treatment, this thematic issue is  focusing on the recent advances in waste biorefineries through using chemical, biological and material technologies.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Bioremediation and biosorbents from waste biomass sources
  • Biocatalyst and bioreagents from waste biomass sources
  • Biotransformation and biosynthesis from waste biomass sources
  • Biofuels and bioenergy from waste biomass sources
  • Biochemicals and value-added compounds from waste biomass sources
  • Biobased polymers and biomaterials from waste biomass sources
