The 3rd International Conference for Bioresource Technology for Bioenergy, Bioproducts & Environmental Sustainability (BIORESTEC) was held online from 17 to 19 May 2021. More than 120 participants from all over the world participated in this conference. The conference was studded with nine plenary lectures, ten invited lectures as well as more than 50 oral presentations along with several poster presentations. The purpose of the conference was to foster the exchange of knowledge and ideas among researchers in academia and industry as well as policymakers working on various aspects of biorefinery to discuss the progress made during the intervening three years and the latest trends in biotechnology, bioenergy, and biobased products. Biorefinery is winning over petrol refinery due to its sustainable nature and is the major driving force to a positive push to World's bioeconomy. Biorefinery enables us to obtain cascades of products by using biomass; including bioenergy, platform chemicals and various other bioproducts. Most of the talks during the conference dealt with sustainable practices for producing or synthesizing biomolecules via microorganisms. Bacteria, fungi as well algae were presented as bio machinery to convert the waste residues into value-added products including bioenergy and other biomolecules. This virtual special issue includes a selection of papers presented at the BIORESTEC conference, which contribute to environmental sustainability and give a strong message on sustainable technologies through developing bioproducts in order to overcome environmental issues.
