Biofuel cells including Microbial Fuel Cells (MFC) and Enzymatic Fuel Cells (EFC) provide a more sustainable and environmental friendly path to convert chemical energy to green electricity. Recently, various new technologies based on MFC/EFC are emerging, which greatly diversifies the application and expands the boundary of biofuel cells to make them extremely fascinating.
This Special Iissue (SI) is dedicated to the fundamentals of biofuel cells and to the state-of-art of their applications. This SI will include, but is not limited to : i) fundamental exploration (new insight on biological/electrochemical mechanisms, thermodynamic/kinetic modeling, microbial community, electrogenic/electrotrophic microbes, etc.), ii) process engineering (configuration/interface design, electrode material/membrane manipulation, genetic/protein/pathway engineering, process development/optimization, etc.) and iii) emerging applications (MFC/EFC-based biosensing, bioremediation, bioelectrolysis, bioelectrosynthesis, etc.). The SI welcomes original research articles and reviews highlighting the current advances in the understanding of the fundamental mechanisms and the progresses in the corresponding applications.
Attractive points of this SI are as below.
Quality and impact:Rigorous, fair and efficient peer review process.Process Biochemistryhas a CiteScore of 3.06 and an Impact Factor of 2.883 in 2018 with high reputation in the multidisciplinary areas related to bioprocessing science and technology.
Expertise:The SI is headed by young active experts - Prof. Yang-Chun Yong (Jiangsu University, China) and Prof. Makarand M. Ghangrekar (Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India).
Rapid publication:Online production, proofing and final publication will be arranged when each manuscript is accepted. All articles in this SI will be published and cited the same as those of a regular issue. With the new EVISE publication system, the final fully citable articles will appear online fast.
