Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Processes: Feature Review Papers in the Environmental and Green Processes Section
This Special Issue focuses on all the efforts in research being made to change the classical paradigm of waste management, aimed to get rid of them or recovering a minimal profit. All the works where wastes are raw sources to obtain new or existing products by means of physical, chemical or biological processes are welcome. Works only focused on composting or anaerobic digestion are discouraged, unless these technologies have a minor or secondary role. The Special Issue is aimed at covering all type of wastes, from urban and industrial sources.
