Sustainable Energy & Fuels first Impact Factor released as 4.912

Sustainable Energy & Fuels (SEF) is delighted to announce its first Impact Factor of 4.912*.

We are delighted to see the support from the community over the last two years, contributing high quality scientific research that will drive the development of sustainable energy technologies!

We would like to thank all our authors, referees and readers who have contributed to this success, as well as the hard work from our Editorial and Advisory Board members to make this journal an important resource in the field of sustainable energy research.

Introducing Sustainable Energy & Fuels Associate Editor: Professor Andrea Kruse

Andrea Kruse, University Hohenheim, Germany

ORCiD https://orcid.org/0000-0002-8156-139X

Andrea Kruse has studied chemistry at the University of Heidelberg and specialized in Chemical Engineering. After and during her PhD, she worked in the Research Centre Karlsruhe, now Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in the field of hydrothermal biomass conversion, mainly. She did her Habilitation with her studies in Supercritical Water Gasification at the Technical University Darmstadt, getting the “venia legendi” in chemical engineering.

Since 2012, she is holding the chair of Conversion Technologies of Biobased Resources at University of Hohenheim. Her main activities are the production of platform chemicals and materials from biomass, and the development of advanced separation processes for biorefineries. The focus is here to develop the whole value chain “from the field to the product”.
