Materials Today Sustainability is a multi-disciplinary journal covering all aspects of sustainability through materials science.

With a rapidly increasing population with growing demands, materials science has emerged as a critical discipline toward protecting of the environment and ensuring the long term survival of future generations. Preserving the natural world, while accommodating human needs that are expanding in both volume and complexity requires the production and application of novel materials designed to tackle issues spanning energy, medicine, food ;& water, construction, transport, manufactured goods, and the climate

Part of the Materials Today family,Materials Today Sustainability offers authors rigorous peer review, rapid decisions, and high visibility; allowing researchers to demonstrate the potential for their research to protect the planet. The editors welcome comprehensive articles, short communications and reviews addressing the use of materials science to issues of sustainability, on topics including but not limited to:
•CO2 capture and storage
•Hydrogen generation and storage
•Novel energy storage technologies
• Solar energy
• Sustainable catalysis materials
• Sustainable utilization of raw materials
•Recycling of materials
• Biomass, bio-fuels and bioenergies
• Green processes and technologies
• Green chemistry
