With the increasingly rapid development of modern civilization, resource use for human convenience equally grows. These changes are gradually threatening the stable lives of people, causing problems such as environmental pollution and depletion of resources. Waste recycling is essential to solve the above problems while using limited resources. In modern societies, wastes are no longer considered a waste, but a resource placed in the wrong place. Recycling of organic waste begun a long time ago, but it is not a realistic alternative yet. Thus, the aim of this Research Topic is to provide a comparison of novel technologies and approaches with conventional methods, to enhance bioenergy production from various wastes. In particular, organic waste such as wastewater, food waste, livestock, non-food crop, algal biomass and others can be good sources to produce bioenergy. Advanced computer tools, methods and technologies are unfolding the truth and complexity of the problems to make bioenergy a propitious technology towards sustainable development.

This Research Topic will deal with the development of enhancing bioenergy production from various organic materials such as new approach concepts, and new aspect analyses. The final goal is to innovate and develop commercial products based on traditional technologies. Additionally, a strong focus will be put on recent developments in data analysis in engineering and at the molecular level to reveal microbial and molecular synergism in bioenergy production systems.

The editors encourage submissions of original research articles, short communications, industrial and country/region case studies, and review articles. This Research Topic covers but is not limited to the following:

• Biological process for bioenergy production: liquid and gaseous bioenergy production using various organic materials excluding wastewater;
• Waste to energy: biological wastewater treatment for bioenergy production;
• Ecology of microorganisms in biological process;
• Novel approaches: Meta/Big data analysis, Network analysis, Statistics analysis, Mathematical analysis;
• Advanced microbial and molecular analysis.


Keywords: Bioenergy/fuels production, Bio refinery, meta-big data analysis, network analysis, Waste to energy, Waste treatment
