Themed collection: Chemistry in Biorefineries

RSC Advances is delighted to present this themed collection titled ‘Chemistry in Biorefineries’.

This collection aims to deepen the current knowledge of chemistry in biorefineries. The non-renewable nature of fossil fuels makes the current economic model unsustainable. The biorefinery concept, which takes traditional refineries as a starting point and adapts them to environmentally friendly processes based on bioresources as raw materials, has attracted the interest of a large number of scientists. Achieving a sustainable production of bio-based fuels, chemicals and materials requires a deep understanding of the chemistry behind biorefining processes.

This collection has been Guest Edited by Professor Alejandro Rodríquez Pascual (Universidad de Cordoba), Professor Fabio Montagnaro (University of Naples Federico II) and Professor Carlos Martín Medina (Umeå University and Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences). They provide an overview of the collection in this accompanying Editorial.

A selection of articles have been highlighted below, and you can view the full collection here.
