About this Research Topic

Abstract Submission Deadline 08 February 2023
Manuscript Submission Deadline 12 April 2023

This Research Topic is seeking contributions research related to the 2023 13th International Conference on Future Environment and Energy held in Tokyo, Japan: www.icfee.org. ICFEE 2023 is co-organized by Sophia University, Tokyo, Japan. The conference is one of the leading international conferences for presenting novel and fundamental advances in the fields of Future Environment and Energy. It also serves to foster communication among researchers and practitioners working in a wide variety of scientific areas with a common interest in improving Future Environment and Energy related techniques.

In creating our modern society, we have accelerated the rate of the waste deposition, causing global warming, soil and water ecosystem disruption, in turn threatening the life cycles and expectancies life on the planet. Adopting a pathway toward zero-waste in industry provides a solution for a carbon-free society and natural resource preservation. One significant source of waste is the agroindustry such as from sugar production, rice mills and fruit factories. Waste from industries can be converted into a useful fuel that could minimize the consumption of fossil fuels, energy curtailment and support decarbonization framework. We are responsible for promoting waste valorisation and extracting useful energy from the waste to bring a clean and secure environment for our future generations.

Industrialization has always generated by-products (wastes). Such by-products from agroindustry include are bagasse (28% of input sugar cane), filter cake from sugar production (4-5%), peels of fruits (10-30%) etc. By-products are problematic and require proper waste management; a sustainable way is to utilize or valorise these wastes. Waste to energy has been of great interest for many industries. For instance in tire pyrolysis, the by-product carbon black which makes up 29-30% of the product, can be used as fuel in cement industry. Zero-waste campaigns have been launched in in the past 10 years. Moreover, as climate change is a global issue which calls for a carbon neutralisation framework. We are all responsible for this problem and our next generations are eager to see the rapid move to sustainable societies.

This Research Topic proposes to promote the development of applications for prototype/commercial scale waste management and/or valorisation toward a carbon-free society. Original research and review article submissions are welcome, and the renewable energy related topics which support the sustainable ways are also appreciated.

This topic welcomes all research articles which relate to

• Waste valorisation/management (e.g. leaf biomass from farming being collected and sent to power plant, waste water from food industries that can be converted to biogas.),

• Cleaner carbon-based energy production,

• Biomass, bio-fuel, and other renewable energy,

• Sustainable systems which support carbon neutralisation/decarbonisation

• Bio-circular and bio-economy.

Keywords: Waste valorization, Waste management, Zero-waste, sustainable, waste to energy, renewable energy, carbon neutralization


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
