Call for Papers - Topical Issue on "Synthesis and characterisation of porous materials for clean energy applications"

Materials with tunable porosity are essential in science and technology. Many current applications such purification or catalysis require the use of nanostructured porous materials with specific pore shape (volume, cage aperture…). Nowadays, environmental concern is a top priority for many countries and the production of clean energy will become mandatory. New challenges and new needs arise from this ecological transition and porous materials will play an important role to decarbonize our energy production.
This special issue of the journal of Science and Technology for Energy Transition (STET) focuses on the synthesis and characterisation of porous materials and on their applications in the field of “clean energies” (depollution, CO2 capture, hydrogen purification/storage, energy storage/production…). Research papers, reviews and short communications are welcome until May 2023.

Call for Papers - Topical Issue on "The role of Negative Emissions Technologies in 2050 decarbonation pathways"

To reach the Paris Agreement climate objectives to stay far below a 2°C-average temperature increase at end of Century, deployment of Negative Emissions Technologies (NETs) at a large scale is mandatory by 2050. This requires our societies to evaluate the benefit of natural carbon sinks, engineered carbon sequestration in soils, biomass energy in association with carbon capture and storage but also direct air carbon capture associated with underground geological storage and largely develop these solutions in the 30 coming years. In 2019, IFP School launched a research chair, the CarMa chair, supported by TotalEnergies in association with Fondation Tuck, and dedicated to carbon management and negative emissions technologies.

Call for Papers - Topical Issue on "Characterization and modeling of the subsurface in the context of ecological transition"

The subsurface fulfills specific functions within the framework of the ecological transition. It is a storage space at different time horizons (CO2, H2, biogas, etc.), it is a source of geothermal energy and metals from hydrothermalism, it is also a strategic area because it contains a large part of drinking water reserves. Its sustainable exploitation requires an adaptation of methods, methodologies and skills in subsurface sciences. This STET special issue brings together a set of articles presenting research work devoted to methods and tools for characterizing and modeling the subsurface in the context of a sustainable use of this strategic area.
