    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    We are all currently concerned about global issues including food security and environmental difficulties. The circular bioeconomy is a strategy that has promise for addressing these worldwide problems. The development of biomaterials and energy can support the energy-environment nexus and replace petroleum as the production feedstock, resulting in a lower carbon footprint and a cleaner environment. A sustainable circular bioeconomy is also made possible by the incorporation of trash into bioprocesses for the creation of useful goods and metabolites.

    The goal of this assessment is to promote a cleaner environment by highlighting the waste biorefinery as a sustainable bio-based circular economy. There are several case studies on bioprocesses that use waste to produce biopolymers and bio-lipids, as well as bioprocesses that involve wastewater treatment. In the context of solving global problems, the circular bioeconomy and waste biorefinery strategies can assist in addressing carbon management and greenhouse gas emissions. By reducing greenhouse gas emissions, a waste biorefinery-circular bioeconomy model represents a low-carbon economy and offers promising opportunities for a more sustainable and environmentally friendly society.

    Manuscript Submission information

    Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging in to this link. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed.
    Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent on email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
    Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
