Special Issue in Processes: Composting in the Framework of Circular Economy
In recent years, environmental and green processes have reached great relevance both in industrial and research fields. Especially important are all the processes that involve the use of wastes for the production of energy or bioproducts that can substitute traditional chemically based processes. Usually, these environmental and green processes are more sustainable and can fit in a circular economy framework.
The aim of this Special Issue is to compile a set of reviews in all the emerging fields of environmental and green processes that can provide significant advantages with respect to traditional processes. This includes the main topics of environmental and green processes—energy, water, air, and waste—but is also open to other fields.
In all cases, data on environmental impact assessment and economic analysis of the green processes will be especially welcome, as they will help to fill fundamental gaps for these processes to be scaled up and commercially developed.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
