BMC Chemistry is calling for submissions to our Collection on future fuels.
Developing cleaner, greener, and more efficient fuels is vital to reducing our reliance on dwindling fossil fuel resources and reducing the negative impact of human activity on the environment.
To succeed, any new fuel must compete with the existing fossil fuel-based energy sources in terms of cost, efficiency, and reliability. Such fuels will need to be produced at scale without damage to the environment and ideally be compatible with existing infrastructure such as engines, pipelines, and storage tanks.
The solutions to many of these challenges lie with various innovations across chemistry, helping to develop new, sustainable fuel sources or improving the efficiency of existing ones. These solutions range from novel biofuels, fuel cells, and photo-voltaic materials to catalyst-based carbon capture and utilization.
In support of SDG12 (Affordable, clean energy for all), BMC Chemistry has launched this collection which welcomes submissions addressing the following:
● Fuel cells, e.g., Microbial fuel, gas layer, alkaline fuel cells, phosphoric acid, proton exchange membrane, molten carbonate, solid oxide, or hydrogen fuel cells
● Electrochemical and photocatalytic energy conversion
● Green hydrogen
● Synthetic methane, synthetic methanol, or synthetic ammonia
● Alternative catalysts for future fuels
● Methods to upscale the production of such fuels in an efficient and sustainable manner
