Waste Management in Circular Bioeconomy

The era of waste management has progressed from a sector that was primarily concerned with primary treatment to one that is now concerned with the final disposal of waste streams generated by society. The advancement of waste management contributes to energy production and the conservation of secondary resources. Drifting away from fossil fuels and towards more environmentally friendly energy sources, energy recovery from waste is becoming increasingly popular to reduce reliance on foreign oil imports. Solid waste management is a significant problem in developing nations, and poor waste management can have severe consequences for both society and the environment if not addressed. MSW production in 2016 was 2.01 BT (0.74 kg/person/day), of which 33% was handled in an environmentally hazardous and conservative manner, according to a world bank report 2022. Solid wastes contain a high proportion of organic materials, which can be recovered through appropriate processing choices, although they can pollute the environment if not disposed of properly. Improvements in closed-loop resource recovery increased green products supply, and ecosystem protection and biodiversity are all expected to result from the successful employment of more sustainable municipal solid waste management.

This special issue entitled “Waste management in Circular Bioeconomy” has been conceptualized to highlight some of the advances in the field. We are especially interested in the high-quality contributory research papers and critical reviews on the following topics:

  • Biorefineries in waste management
  • Climate change and waste management
  • Linkage between waste management and bioeconomy
  • Waste management technology integration
  • Bioprocesses in waste management
  • Integration of technologies for waste-to-value products
  • Life cycle assessment and techno-economic analysis
  • Case studies, waste management, and sustainability
