ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering: CHEMPOR Thematic Collection

The 13thInternational Chemical and Biological Engineering Conference (CHEMPOR 2018), organized by the University of Aveiro and the Portuguese Engineers Association, was held in Aveiro, Portugal, October 2-4, 2018. ‪CHEMPOR 2018 focused on recent developments in a range of applications spanning chemical engineering, materials science and engineering, biotechnology and biological engineering, as well as possible future directions for these areas.  The conference was a vibrant meeting point, gathering professionals from both academia and industry, with participants joining from 14 countries.

‪This CHEMPOR 2018 collection of papers includes examples of work aligned to address some of the most fundamental research areas that are required to help deliver a more sustainable circular economy in which materials are valued and resources are kept “in-play.” The collection showcases state-of-the-art contributions to the field of renewable energy solutions, biomass remediation and waste valorization. Each article below was published with a special note, “This article was presented at the 13th International Chemical and Biological Engineering Conference (CHEMPOR 2018). The authors acknowledge the Scientific and Organizing Committees of the Conference for the opportunity to present this work.”

We believe that the articles presented in this collection represent topical examples of work carried out by a vibrant scientific community, representing opportunities and new concepts that are coherent to the development of a more sustainable society.  In closing, we would like to thank everyone who participated in CHEMPOR 2018 and to acknowledge the editorial team of ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering, in particular Robin Wolczanski and Peter Licence, for their significant support and inputs.
