Exergy analysis is a powerful thermodynamic technique for assessing and improving the efficiency of processes, devices and systems, as well as for enhancing environmental and economic performance. As a multidisciplinary concept, exergy applications are observed in various fields, including mechanical and chemical engineering as well as economics, management, physics and biology. Consequently, exergy analysis is used increasingly by industries and governments throughout the world, particularly with the aim of improving energy sustainability. Research and review articles on all facets of exergy and its applications, and on exergy-related topics, are sought for this special issue.
