One of the most important challenges of the 21st century is the limiting or reducing the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. While one of the challenges is the capture of greenhouse gases (primarily CO2) from point and distributed sources, the other is the development of method and techniques to sequester CO2. Each alternative proposed in literature and practiced in a very limited scale has its own shortcomings for the long-term or permanent storage. The idea of mineral carbonation emerges to be the only alternative for permanent solution. This special issue will focus on the recent scientific and technical advances towards development of technically and economically feasible methods, related issues and problems.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Minerals is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
