About This Topic

This special issue will cover the biogas production as a biogenous fuel mainly considering the biomass as a starting source. Furthermore, to consider classical production methods, such as biological and thermochemical methods, we are highly interested in new research systems. The starting biomass will cover also recycled and waste materials to contribute to the “Circular Approach system”. It will be covered also all the required steps for the energy generation, considering the biogas cleaning through adsorption methods and upgrading methods to produce biomethane. All the case-studies with experimental laboratory studies, industrial prototypes and pilot plants are deeply encouraged to be considered for publication. As a resuming in this issue it is interesting to study the following topics:

  • Biogas production methods focusing on the specific method
  • Biogas production focusing on the starting biomass
  • Gas cleaning methods focusing not only on the physical adsorption processes
  • Circular approach for the biogas production and the gas cleaning systems
  • Electrical and thermal energy production using biogas as fuel

Open Access Original Research

Influence of Biogas Digestates on the Composition of Soil Organic Matter

Received: 23 November 2022;  Published: 22 March 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2301012


The increasing number of biogas plants with various digested organic materials and output of digestates calls for more detailed investigations of their suitability as soil amendments. In a trial in Northern Germany two replicate plots each were treated with fresh or prolonged fermented digestate to investigate the influence of digestates on [...]

Evaluation of Oxidative Stability and Kinetic Parameters of the Cottonseed and Soybean Biodiesels by Rancimat and Differential Scanning Calorimetry Techniques

Received: 26 September 2022;  Published: 22 December 2022;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2204042


In this study, the oxidative stability of the cottonseed oil biodiesel (CB) and soybean oil biodiesel (SB) was investigated by two methodologies, Rancimat and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), using samples fresh and aged (mid-term storage condition (100 days)). The biodiesel samples were synthesized by transesterification and character [...]

The Design, Development and Assessment of a Novel De-centralised IoT-Based Remote Monitoring of a Small-Scale Anaerobic Digester Network

Received: 21 September 2022;  Published: 28 November 2022;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2204039


The implementation of community-level de-centralised anaerobic digestion (AD) systems offers a sustainable solution for organic waste management and energy provision, but there is currently a need for low-cost methods of system control and management at this scale. The problem becomes accentuated with increasing deployment, as greater complexi [...]
