Volume 5, Issue 1

BRJ's March issue showcases outstanding biofuel research, reviews, and perspectives across the journal's broad scope. The issue features important fundamental research in chemistry of fuel additives production and bioethanol production, as well as reviews and perspectives in environmental sustainability in the biofuel industry. BRJ`s review articles in this issue cover current status and future prospects of biofuel industry in Canada and different microalgal pretreatment for bioethanol production. The editorial deals with real-world challenges faced by the biofuel industry worldwide from the environmental sustainability point of view discussing instrumental tools to manage the associated concerns. We hope you enjoy reading it.

On the cover
Although the biofuel industry addresses, at least partially, both energy and  environmental issues, its activities utilize matter and energy and also generate  wastes, potentially affecting the environment and human health. In this issue of Biofuel Research Journal, Professor Marc A. Rosen (pp. 751-752) emphasizes that careful and serious consideration of the  environmental sustainability aspects of this industry is necessary. In the cover image, the application of exergy-based methods, encompassing the  essences of the other sustainability assessment tools like LCA, appear to  be promising  tools in the analysis of biofuel production systems from  thermodynamic, economic, and environmental perspectives simultaneously, leading to overall sustainability of the planet.

The 16th Issue of Biofuel Research Journal Released!

With a unique publication policy of Completely Free-of-Charge and Open Access at No-Charge, Biofuel Research Journal is indexed by Thomson Reuters Web of Science (also known as ISI Web of Science): Emerging Sources Citation Index, Scopus, CrossRef, DOAJEZBCAB Abstracts, and CAS Databases (Chemical Abstracts).

The strong and unique Editorial Board of BRJ includes Editor-in-Chiefs (EICs) and Editors of many prestigious high impact-factored journals in the field such as Biorsource Technology (EIC & Associate Editor), Water Research (EIC), Biotechnology Advances (Editor), Applied Energy (Editor), Desalination (EIC), Industrial Crops and Products (Advisory Board), Journal of Biomass to Biofuel (EIC), International Journal of Hydrogen Energy (Editor), BioEnergy Research Journal (Associate Editor), BioResources (EIC), Energy & Environmental Science (Advisory Board), MethodsX (EIC & Advisory Board), Journal of Membrane Science (Advisory Board), Chemical Engineering Science (Editor), Catalysis Today (Advisory Board), ACS Catalysis (Advisory Board), etc.

The Editorial of the current Issue (Issue 16, 1st December 2017) entitled “Biofuels and green chemistry - a common journey ahead” (DOI: 10.18331/BRJ2017.4.4.2) has been authored by Guest Editor; Professor Luigi Vaccaro (Università di Perugia, Italy).

Luigi Vaccaro is a Professor of Organic Chemistry at the Universita degli Studi di Perugia (Italy) and is a Guest Professor (Bijzonder Gastdocent) at the University of KU Leuven (Belgium).
Prof. Vaccaro is leading the Green S.O.C. group in Perugia and is dedicating his research and teaching activity to the development of sustainable tools for minimizing waste and accessing cleaner products. He is currently focusing on the identification and use of novel biomass-derived solvents and on the design and synthesis of novel polymeric matrices for the preparation of heterogeneous catalytic systems suitable for being used in flow and green reaction media. Recent applications are directed toward the definition of sustainable protocols for cross-coupling and C-H activation processes aimed at the clean synthesis of organic semiconductors and target materials. Luigi Vaccaro is author of ca. 130 scientific publications and received the Europa Medal from Society of Chemical Industry - London (2001), the ADP Award from Merck's Chemistry Council for "Creative work in organic chemistry" (2006 and 2007), the G. Ciamician Medal of the Societa Chimica Italiana (2007) and the Vigevani Visiting Professorship (2014).

Luigi is an Associate Editor of the journals RSC Advances and Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry, and a member of the FWO WT&4 Chemistry expert panel and of the OECD-EPA commission on substitution of toxic substances.

This must-read Editorial masterfully looks into the importance of incorporating the very principles of green chemistry in the field of biofuels production.
The new issue also includes quality Original Research Articles and Review Articles

All articles published in the journal are freely available and are published completely free-of-charge.

We look forward to welcoming you as an author.
