About the journal
The Journal of Resource Recovery (JRR) is a multidisciplinary, open-access journal with completely free-of-charge publication policy. JRR welcomes contributions from research (experimental, modeling and simulation), which consider sustainable and promising technologies for resource recovery from liquid, gaseous and solid based sources. The journal emphasizes the high-tech approaches and recent progresses for sustainable and practical strategies for resource recovery. Priority is upon technological, engineering, environmental and economic aspects of specific resource recovery practices, such as reusing, recycling and recovery from a wide range of liquid, gaseous and solid resources as well as bio-wastes. International, national or regional contributions with focus at any level of research, i.e., from individual resources or technologies, are welcomed. Contributions should emphasize scientific, technological and methodological issues, as well as the discussion of environmental, practical, and economic implications of the accomplished research.
Journal of Resource Recovery publishes high-quality original articles, icluding research papers, review papers, case studies, and perspectives, from across the full range of disciplines related to resource recovery. All these types of contributions should highlight the development of sustainable technologies focusing on recovery of value-added materials and chemicals from waste resources. Moreover, all submissions must show a distinctive link with resource recovery technologies and applications. Subject areas include, but are not limited to:
- Resource recovery from liquid waste (e.g., industrial wastewater, seawater, brine mining, urine refinery, agro-food wastewater, critical and precious metals recovery, etc.)
- Resource recovery from solid waste (e.g., waste electronic devices, biomass and biochar, sludge, polymeric materials, composite materials, batteries, etc.)
- Resource recovery from gaseous waste (e.g., greenhouse gases capture, recovery and conversion; CO2 and CO capture and conversion, air mining, atmospheric water production, direct air capture, industrial gaseous waste, biogas refinery, oxyfuel, etc.)
- Energy recovery (e.g., fuel cell technology, batteries, bioenergy and biofuels, renewable energy from resource recovery, blue energy, hydrogen energy, recovery of waste thermal and cooling energy, etc.)
Moreover, innovative technologies, processes, and tools to enhance the resource recovery; life cycle assessment and management of resources and products; substitution of primary resources by renewable or regenerative alternatives; stainable and green technologies for resource recovery; multicriteria assessment of resource recovery technologies; stakeholder role in future of resource recovery; environmental impact and risk assessment of resource recovery technologies; case studies and modeling of resource recovery technologies; and recovery of hazardous and radioactive resources, as well as management and strategies for nonrecoverable resources, and economic analysis of resource recovery, are of interest. JRR also seeks to publish articles with a focus on the technology development for resource recovery, which can help to accomplish the Sustainable Development Goals, by the United Nationas.
