On the Cover
Vol. 9, Issue 2

The sustainability of food and energy markets has been immensely impacted by the serious conflicts caused by the Ukraine-Russia war since late February 2022. This is due to the key role of these two countries in supplying natural gas and fertilizers and exporting grains and oilseeds to the international markets. As a response to the urgent call for action against the emergent crisis in food and biofuel markets, in the June 2022 Issue of Biofuel Research Journal, a team of researchers from Italy and Australia have attempted to address the imbalance of food and biofuel markets amid the Ukraine-Russia crisis through a systems thinking perspective. In this vein, they have provided a causal loop diagram of different variables involved within the food and biofuel markets in the wake of the war implications. They highlighted the importance of accelerating the transition from the 1st generation of biofuels to higher generations to mitigate the adverse effects of the war on both food security and sustaining biofuel production mandates. Not only will this transition reduce the pressure on the food market to achieve SDG 2 but also it will pave the way to move towards a circular economy and clean and affordable energy in line with SDG 7 during the post-war era (DOI: 10.18331/BRJ2022.9.2.5).

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.
