Biomass waste management and utilisation

Submission status
Open
Submission deadline

The global generation of biomass residues from agriculture, forestry, animal waste, food and other biodegradable municipal waste represents an increasing management problem, as biomass waste can have significant environmental impacts. Whilst a growing number of countries have introduced strict measures to stop biodegradable waste being sent to landfill, biomass waste disposal, utilization, and management practices are not yet universally applied. The efficient management of biomass residues has nowadays become even more important as biomass waste streams are a potential feedstock for a variety of environmentally friendly products and represent an essential alternative energy source towards carbon neutrality.

This collection will showcase the latest research on biomass waste management and utilisation technologies towards zero waste plans, circular economy, and net-zero carbon emissions.
