Vol. 9, Issue 1

The generation of hydrogen-rich syngas from renewable feedstocks continues to improve significantly, especially via the gasification process. Steam gasification, hydrothermal gasification, subcritical water gasification, and supercritical water gasification are among the current technology options, each associated with different pros and cons. Co-feeding strategy is also critical for creating sustainable hydrogen-rich syngas from renewable feedstocks whose quantity and quality fluctuate. In addition, microwave-assisted gasification is increasingly used due to its advantages over conventionally-heated gasification. However, bed materials, catalysts, and adsorbents suitable for conventional heating must be reconsidered, and novel materials with high dielectric loss qualities matching the features of microwave heating should be developed. Furthermore, the sustainability features of microwave-assisted gasification and co-gasification for hydrogen-rich syngas synthesis must be scrutinized using tools such as techno-economic and life cycle assessment analyses before their large-scale implementation. In this context, in the March 2022 issue of Biofuel Research Journal, a team of Indonesian researchers has thoroughly analyzed and critically discussed all of the major elements involved in producing hydrogen-rich syngas by microwave heating and co-gasification. They highlighted that while microwave heating is superior to conventional heating, the quantity of hydrogen produced remains small. Nevertheless, the syngas generated via microwave heating has a significantly higher heating value than conventional heating (DOI: 10.18331/BRJ2022.9.1.4).

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.
