Journal of Biobased Materials and Bioenergy (JBMB)

January 28, 2008

Journal of Biobased Materials and Bioenergy (JBMB)
http://www.aspbs.com/jbmbe/
http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/asp/jbmb

The goal of the creation of a biobased economy is challenging to agriculture, forestry, academia, government and industry. The extractable resources of the Earth are finite, regardless of the quibble over when they will be depleted. The economic, political and social demands for biobased chemicals, materials and energy are expected to radically transform the materials industries, particularly the plastics industry as well as the biofuel industry. These changes will be based on the principles of sustainability, eco-efficiency, industrial ecology, and green chemistry and engineering. In keeping with the growth of knowledge in this field, there is a strong need for a forum to share original research related to biobased materials and bioenergy. The Journal of Biobased Materials and Bioenergy (JBMB) has been created as an international peer-reviewed periodical to fulfill the need for communication in these research areas. This journal will encompass related research activities in all fields of science, engineering and the life sciences. JBMB publishes original, full length papers using timely state-of-the-art reviews (with author’s photo and biography) and short communications encompassing fundamental and applied research. Generally, the Journal of Biobased Materials and Bioenergy will cover all aspects of research related to bioderived/biobased materials and energy, including their applications in all fields of science, engineering and the life sciences. The depletion of petroleum reserves and its ever increasing price and the growing environmental pollution have necessitated the development of materials drived from biomass/renewable resources. Researchers and industrialists are seeking to develop new eco-friendly green/biobased products and other innovative technologies that will reduce our dependenc on dwindling petroleum resources. Biobased/green/renewable resource based materials are the wave of the future because of the growing environmental pollution. This synergy is driving the increased use of new materials and products that are compatible with the environment and independent of fossil fuels. Such genuine requirements and needs can be fulfilled through fundamental research thereby developing the next generation of materials and fuels. Environmental and economic factors are also driving for the greater use of biobased feedstocks and chemicals. Many leading companies across the world have ambitious plans for biobased materials, biofuels and related processing technologies. Biobased materials have a wide range of uses in packaging, transportation, construction, consumer goods, electronics and many other fields. The scope of the journal will be in the areas of:

* Biobased Polymers and Blends
* Biobased Composites and Nanocomposites
* Biobased Materials Processing Technologies
* Life Cycle Analysis and Social Impacts of Biobased Materials
* Environmental Impacts of Biobased Materials
* Biofuels from Biomass and Related Processing Developments
* Life Cycle Analysis as well as Social and Environmental Impact of Biofuels, etc.
