Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.
Main research areas include (but are not limited to):
Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a range of papers (original research, review, communication, opinion, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

About This Topic
Agricultural and forest wastes, as well as urban and industrial waste, are examples of biomass feedstock. Currently, the usage of renewable solid fuels, such as biomass, is becoming more important. Simultaneously, the volume and diversity of solid waste that should be repurposed is increasing. The conversion of biomass and biowaste into bioenergy and biofuels is an alternative and cost-effective way for producing renewable energy while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and accomplishing waste reduction objectives. Waste materials are accessible without requiring a change in land use and using them helps to solve waste management issues and disposal obstacles. This Special Issue is devoted to research on the valorisation of various forms of biomass and waste biomass including plastics and microplastics into bioenergy and biofuels, such as plant material, wood, bark, leaves and needles, forest residues, food waste, agricultural waste, municipal solid waste, wastewater sludge, wood waste, wastewater, black liquor from pulp, cow manure, and other manufacturing waste. Original research reports, review articles, communications, and perspectives are welcome in all areas pertinent to the topic.

Carnauba straw (Copernicia prunifera), residual biomass derived from wax extraction, was evaluated as a potential feedstock for bioenergy production. The characterization was carried out using elemental analysis, proximate analysis, Higher Heating Value (HHV), FTIR spectroscopy, SEM, and FRX. The carbonization, using a [...]

A multicopper oxidase, laccases catalyze the four-electron reduction of the substrate with the use of molecular oxygen. Laccases are abundant in nature and can be found in virtually every form of life on the planet. Generally speaking, laccases are classified into three types: blue, white, and yellow. Plant, bacterial and fungal laccases all [...]
Evaluation of Pyrolysis Products of Industrial Wastes as Potential Feedstocks for Bioenergy and Biofuels
Received: 02 November 2022; Published: 11 January 2023; doi: 10.21926/aeer.2301005
This work aimed at evaluating all products from the low-temperature pyrolysis (350°C) of some industrial wastes, cotton stems and seeds (CSS), grape husks and curls (GRH), undigested sewage sludge (USS) and their blends in a fixed bed system and suggesting their possible applications. Solid and liquid products, biochars, and bio-oils were [...]
