The global trend in the recent past is the production of green renewable fuel as an alternative for non-renewable and expensive petroleum fuels. The researchers' worldwide offer heavily devotes to develop and optimize the chemistry and technology of biomass conversion into fuel. The conversion of biomass based solid or liquid materials are achieved through gasification or pyrolysis. In gasification, the carbonaceous materials are converted into useful convenient gaseous fuels or chemical feedstock. Pyrolysis produces liquid fuels from biomass. Beside that the waste and non-edible oils can be gasified into fuel, they are also converted into biodiesel via transesterfication. Actually, biomass has many advantages as an energy feedstock: i) Unlike fossil fuel, biomass does not take millions of years to develop; ii) Plants use sunlight through photosynthesis to metabolize atmospheric carbon dioxide and grow; iii) Fossil fuels do not reproduce whereas biomass does; iv) Biomass is considered a “carbon-neutral” fuel as the burning of biomass or its derived fuel releases carbon dioxide that the plants had absorbed from the atmosphere only recently (a few years to a few hours).
This issue will include the articles related to the using of biomass based solid agricultural wastes or others such as waste plastics and waste oils or non-edible oils as feedstock for energy production via:
  1. Pyrolysis: a) Direct pyrolysis (uncatalyzed) ; b) Catalytic pyrolysis
  2. Gasification: Optimization of chemical processing in terms of productivity and the quality of the resulting gases (SOx-free and NOx-free)
  3. Transesterfication: Production of biodiesel using different types of catalysts and conditions

Aims and Scope:
  1. Biomass Conversion
  2. Biochemical Conversion
  3. Thermochemical Conversion
  4. Pyrolysis
  5. Effect of Catalyst
  6. Mild Pyrolysis
  7. Fast Pyrolysis
  8. Gasification
  9. NOx Precursors
  10. Hydrocracking
