Editorials
for BioResources Online Journal

BioResources welcomes one-to-two page opinion pieces dealing with the science and applications of materials derived from lignocellulosic sources. Preference is given to editorials that offer new or clarified views dealing with societal, environmental, or technical aspects. Editorials must fall within the scope of the journal (see home page). Editorials are selected by the editors from among those that are submitted. The selection is based on the editors' opinion of what items are likely to foster a spirit of scientific exchange of ideas, as well as progress in the development of science and technology related to increased usage of renewable resources.

The following are examples of topics that would be considered especially appropriate in upcoming issues of BioResources:

  • Electricity generation by incineration of biomass vs. conversion to motor fuels
  • Identifying classes of chemicals most suitable for production from lignocellulosic source materials
  • Recycling of paper - when does it make sense and when not?
  • How close are we to producing excess electrical energy from integrated pulp and paper mills?
  • Carbon sequestration - what could we accomplish if we started a massive effort now?
  • Composting vs. soil contamination - arguments for landfilling, incineration, and recycling
