Nowadays, the sustainability of energy generation and environmental wellness are two of the big challenges in the world. Ecological disturbance and depletion of nonrenewable energy in most countries urge the need for development and exploration of sustainable bioenergy resources. A proper approach to implement biotechnology for converting and conserving resources will be of great importance. Ideally, the conversion of natural resources into a certain form of energy should be parallel with the bioproduction of valuable compounds. Furthermore, environmental wellness does encourage us to employ proper habits that promote a healthy environment for a healthy life.
The bioproduction of valuable compounds originating from renewable resources and carbon-neutral waste materials as substrates is a promising approach for a sustainable environment and healthy life. Recent studies on genetic, epigenetic, protein and metabolic engineering offer significant improvement strategies in the bioproduction of many valuable compounds, such as biosurfactants, biofuels, bioinsecticides, bioplastic precursors, biopharmaceuticals, functional food, etc. Hence, in the 3rd International Conference on Natural Resources and Life Sciences (NRLS)” themed Green technology to promote sustainable clean energy, environmental wellness, and healthy life, we will highlight the latest developments in biotechnological research and its applications, consisting of Clean Energy and Environmental Sustainability, Sustainable Agriculture, and Health Care. .
Following the successful program of 1st & 2nd NRLS, we intend to make the two-day meeting followed by a one-day workshop in 3rd NRLS, as a global forum for scientific and industrial communities to discuss the recent advances in biotechnological research and its application. It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 3rd NRLS, which is being held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation, from September 23rd-24th, 2020 and the following online-workshop on September 25th, 2020. .
Best regards, .

The 2nd NRLS 2018 was held on August 23–24, 2018. This conference presented eight international speakers from five countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Singapore, and Thailand. Over 200 representatives of 48 institutions participated in this event, involving more than 74 abstracts submitted in the form of oral and poster presentations. After a rigorous selection process, the Scientific & Editorial Board have decided to publish 43 manuscripts in IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science (EES), an international proceeding indexed in Scopus, Scimago, Conference Proceedings Citation Index-Science (CPCI-S) of Clarivate Analytics’s Web of Science, etc. From 43 selected ones above, 21 manuscripts were results of joint research between Indonesia and various countries, e.g. Australia, England, India, Japan, Georgia, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Madagascar, Malaysia, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, Spain, and Sweden. Those manuscripts cover various biological themes, i.e. Food Biotechnology, Agricultural Biotechnology, Medical Biotechnology & Forensics, and Environmental Biotechnology & Renewable Energy. Each of the 43 manuscripts in IOP Conference Series–EES have been reviewed by at least two experts using double-blind system. The published manuscripts have passed all necessary improvement requirements (according to the IOP Proceedings standard), reviewer’s comments, SI (Système International d'Unités), and similarity tests (with the highest threshold of 25 %) as well as editing procedure by professional editors from seven countries (Georgia, India, Indonesia, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, and Sweden).
Our appreciation goes to the reviewers, editors, and members of the Scientific & Editorial Board for their big efforts in reviewing and improving the manuscripts. For the generous supports in succeeding the NRLS-2018, we extend our gratitude toward the University of Surabaya’s management and supporting units, our co-hosts the Faculty of Pharmacy and the Faculty of Medicine, and our sponsors VISION TEKNIK, SCIENCEWERKE, INDOLAB UTAMA, and MEGAH SEJAHTERA SCIENTIFIC.
