Dear Colleagues,


The special issue in Journal of Environmental Management (Elsevier), with a theme of “Biowaste and biomass valorization, recycling and recovery practices”, is aiming to report the latest research and development on biowaste and biomass applications.

-Novel and effective valorization, recycling and recovery from biowaste and biomass;
-Biowaste/biomass as raw materials for production of bioenergy, biochemicals, and biomaterials;
-Application of biowaste/biomass for effective remediation of contaminated sites; and
-Application of biowaste/biomass for effective removal of emerging pollutants.
