Rapid population growth every year has led to the accelerated expansion of agricultural land and activity in the food industry. Therefore, agricultural waste becomes a problem for disposal and utilization, which makes it necessary to find flexible strategies for recycling. The idea of using agricultural waste resources to produce carbon materials is considered an optimal solution. Moreover, with renewable energy gaining traction, using low-cost biomass-derived carbon materials for making electrodes in energy storage devices is considered a great strategy.

Technology, business models, and climate change are all sources of disruption that have led to increase greenhouse gas emissions, global warming, air pollution and waste-water. This has made an urgent requirement to find fuel sources that can replace fossil fuels. In the current situation, biomass is recommended as a sustainable substitute for fossil fuel. The use of biomass-derived fuels in new developments is the cornerstone of the global biomass sector. As public health and global warming issues are being addressed, there is a growing need for a renewable energy sources which boosts the expansion of the biomass market. For instance, at the moment, strong research efforts are focused on the production of carbon materials and composites from biomass precursors is being.

This Research Topic will therefore bring together the latest research of biomass waste/residue-derived carbon as a cost-effective material for energy storage and conversion applications, with high quality and great potential for technological transfer to industrial production, with the hope of contributing to the development of science and technology.

Besides the strong focus on Sustainable Process Engineering, the scope of this collection extends to the environmental and economic aspects of biomass and bioenergy.
