On the Cover

Zeolites are known as high-potential frameworks for designing advanced catalysts used in catalytic fast pyrolysis. However, the microporous nature of these materials hinders the diffusion of large molecules into micropores which in turn limits the accessibility of reactants to internal active sites (DOI: 10.18331/BRJ2020.7.3.5). In the September 2020 Issue of Biofuel Research Journal, Soltanian et al. critically review hierarchical mesoporous zeolites as a promising remedy for the diffusional and steric challenges faced by the conventional zeolites in the catalytic fast pyrolysis of biomass. The authors shed light on how different synthesis strategies of mesopore formation can influence the main produced precursors of transportation fuels. They conclude that the desilication procedure is a simple and applicable technique which could be effectively used for large-scale production of hierarchical zeolites.

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.
