On the Cover

Biomethane purification and transportation are two of the most highly challenging issues in biogas production. In the purification process, CO2 and H2S are generally removed using different chemical solvents. While different solvents vary in terms of purification performance, they could also affect the economic viability of the whole process considerably. In the December 2020 Issue of Biofuel Research Journal, a South Korean-Pakistani research team compared Deep Eutectic Solvents (DESs) comprising aqueous ChCl/urea with conventional amines-based solvent (MEA) and ionic liquid (IL) from the economic point of view (DOI: 10.18331/BRJ2020.7.4.3). The authors then innovatively integrate DES-based biogas upgrading with a mixed refrigerant liquefaction process to facilitate the safe and economic transportation of biomethane over long distances. Overall, this study concludes that the developed process offers an economic superiority over the conventional chemical solvents. Cover art by BiofuelResJ. ©2020.

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.
