Biorefinery Sustainable Solutions magazine is a quarterly publication of original and unpublished works related to biorefinery or presenting results of studies and research on the activities of the biorefinery sector in science, technology and innovation.

Coupled with this concept is sustainability, which has been much sought after in recent years and is linked to the replacement of renewable energy sources by renewable sources. Within this form of sustainability is the concept of biorefinery, which aims to convert biomass into biofuels, as well as bioenergy and bioproducts of commercial interest, seeking to find a solution that combines economic viability with environmentally sound production.

Several countries have stood out as a major entrepreneur in energy agriculture, mainly due to the diversification of cultivated biomass and favorable soil and climate conditions for their cultivation. Crops such as cotton, rice, bananas, potatoes, coffee, sugarcane, eucalyptus, corn, soybeans, wheat, oats, coconut and others have been drawing attention not only for their productivity, but also for the generation of agroindustrial waste.

These residues are mainly used for a number of agronomic benefits, for example in weed control, moisture retention, improved soil physical, chemical and biological properties. However, due to the significant amount of waste generated, its composition and, consequently, the chemical and energetic potential of the vegetable fiber, it is possible to use part of this waste in a more noble way, from both chemical and energetic point of view. without prejudice to the agronomic benefits, through processes involving the different biorefinery platforms - chemical, biochemical and thermochemical.

This concept of biorefinery is gaining more prominence with great investment potential and has been identified as one of the most promising ways to create new industries. This vision of technological development will have great relevance and importance regarding the evolution of the agricultural and industrial sectors of the world biomass, directly reflecting the generation of jobs and income in different segments of society.

Thinking about this optimistic scenario, which involves the integral and sustainable use of biomass through the different biorefinery platforms, we decided to create BSS Magazine – Biorefinery Sustainable Solutions. The main objective is to contribute to the wide dissemination and dissemination of research and technologies that guide the different directions of biorefinery in the world scenario. There will be four issues per year and will be available for free to read and download, without charging subscription, submission, evaluation or publishing fees.

  • Articles need to be original and unpublished, about experiences of the biorefinery sector. The main authorship of the works must be of researchers with at least master's degree.

  • Original and unpublished works are considered works that are not under evaluation for publication in any other platform;

  • Submission file must be in Word, OpenOficce or RTF format

  • Originals will be submitted for approval by recognized experts in the topics covered. Papers will be submitted for evaluation without identification of authorship to ensure the blind peer review process.

  • The originals will be sent to the evaluators, all with the minimum degree of Master or recognized notorious knowledge, in the shortest time. The article selection process involves the evaluation of ad hoc experts and the Editorial Committee, which will select the titles to be published. In the summary, the sequence of articles will obey the alphabetical order of surnames of authors, if an order has not been defined by the Editor responsible for the number.
