On the Cover
Vol. 9, Issue 4

On the eve of the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference or Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC, more commonly referred to as COP27, in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and following the release of the 2022 report of the “Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate change” in October 2022, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) stated that “the Lancet Countdown Report shows that the health impacts of Climate Change are increasing. This is a sobering reminder of how much further we still have to go”, emphasizing on the WHO`s supports for the call for a fossil fuel non-proliferation treaty and the need to break the addiction to fossil fuels. A similar reaction was made by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, stressing that “the climate crisis is killing us” and that “COP27 must deliver a down-payment on climate solutions that match the scale of the problem”. Concluding its ninth year of publication, the frontpage cover art of the December 2022 Issue of Biofuel Research Journal, which includes cutting-edge research articles on various aspects of biofuels and bioproducts, portrays the importance of a swift transition from a fossil-based economy to a bio-economy encompassing alternative energy carriers and bioproducts to ensure a thriving future for the generations to come.

Biofuel Research Journal (BRJ) publishes high-quality original articles, review articles, case studies, book reviews, short communications, and hypotheses on the fundamentals, applications, processing, and management of biofuel and bioproduct research and technologies:
 

  • Biofuels & Bioproducts
  • Biodiesel
  • Bioalcohols (bioethanol, biobuthanol, etc.)
  • Biogas (biomethane & biohydrogen)
  • Biomass valorization
  • Algal biofuels & bioproducts
  • Bioprocess (bioreactions, bioreactors, membrane-bioreactors, fermentation, etc.)
  • Biorefineries for biofuels & bioproducts
  • Applied microbiology
  • Combustion
  • Bioresource technologies associated with conversion or production of biofuels & bioproducts

Moreover, novel and integrated biofuel & bioproduct processing and hybrid systems as well as energy audit for biofuel & bioproduct production plants are of interest. The journal also seeks to publish articles with a focus on the application of artificial photosynthesis for biofuels production, carbon footprint analysis, strategies for limiting green house gas (GHG) emissions, life cycle assessment (LCA) and exergy analysis of biofuel & bioproduct production/application pathways, compliance with the international standards (such as PAS 2050:2011 and ISO 14040:2006), technoeconomic analysis of biofuel & bioproduct production/application, impacts of biofuel & bioproduct production/consumption on climate change, futuristic pathways for biofuel & bioproduct production, and promotion of biofuel  & bioproduct applications in the developing world for indigenous development. In addition to the above, BRJ also considers articles with a focus on biofuels & bioproducts in Circular Economy as well as biofuels & bioproducts finance.

Biofuel Research Journal is indexed in Scopus and Web of Science.

BRJ does not charge any submission or publication fees.
