Special Issue Information

Dear Colleague,

Air pollution has become a major concern worldwide. Different technologies are available for the removal of volatile pollutants, based either on mass-transfer of the pollutants from one phase to another or on the destruction of the pollutants. Bioprocesses belong to the latter group of technologies. Bioreactors allow the complete removal of odors and other volatile compounds from gaseous effluents. Bioprocesses can be used for the treatment of a wide range of gas flow rates, allowing complete destruction of pollutants or, occasionally, allowing their conversion to useful products. Recent developments have been made in the field of bioprocesses for air pollution control, which justifies the interest of a special issue in this field on topics such as:

  • Optimization of conventional bioreactors (biofilters, biotrickling filters, bioscrubbers)
  • Innovative bioreactors
  • Hybrid (biological+non-biological) and two-stage bioreactors
  • Anaerobic gas treatment
  • Resource recovery from waste gases
  • Biogas upgrading
  • Modelling of bioprocesses
  • Industrial and full-scale applications and case studies

Submission

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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
