Special Issue on Advances and Challenges in Algae Biomass and Bioeconomy

Pengcheng Fu, PhD, Professor, State Key Laboratory of Marine Resource Utilization, Hainan University, China, and Guest-Editor-in-Chief, Algae Biomass and Bioeconomy

Manuscript Submission Deadline: August 1, 2017

Microalgae are sunlight powered single-cell factories producing valuable protein, lipids, carbohydrates, pigments, vitamins and minerals, etc. They have long been used as health food supplements and ingredients for other products for human and animal uses. Microalgae also prove to be beneficial to the environment through bioremediation of flue gases and wastewater as well as soil fertility. Commercial application of microalgae is faced with tremendous challenges in many different ways. Scientific breakthroughs and engineering innovations are sought in commercial implementation of microalgae based technologies. Algal Biomass and Bioeconomy, a new open access, peer-reviewed and refereed multidisciplinary journal, publishes original research work in the fundamental understanding and rapidly expanding field of commercial applications of microalgae ranging from microalgae biology and molecular biology to mass cultivation, harvesting, dewatering, extraction, bioproducts development, and bio-economy with the ultimate aim to open up new markets for bioproducts and biofuels based on algal biomass.

The first special issue invites contributions in the form of original research papers, critical reviews, case studies, letters, short communication, opinions, commentaries and essays dedicated to both the understanding of the fundamentals and development of industry-oriented technologies. This issue aims to span existing and upcoming algal products and applications with real-world benefits. Scientific communications might address development of food ingredients, microalgae–based organic compounds degradation, progressive aquaculture and animal husbandry, specialty and bulk chemicals preferentially sourced from photosynthetic microbes, bioenergy, biobased colorants and fluorophores, valorization of industrial process residuals in biorefineries, or bioremediation and managing waste streams such as from municipalities.

The special issue aims to publish in print and online in November 2017.

Please visit the Algae Biomass and Bioeconomy website (http://abbjournal.org/index.php/abb/index) for manuscript submission guidelines. We look forward to receiving your manuscripts and to your active participation in the Journal!

 

Registration Fee

The organisers are happy to inform the potential participants that the Symposium is financed by the H2020 project “SABANA” funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 727874 (http://www.eu-sabana.eu), therefore no registration fee will be charged.
