The concept of sustainability is based on the principle of sustainable use of the environment and its resources, and represents an exciting and crucial issue as it determines the future of our planet. This Special Issue aims to focus on the methodological aspects related to the development of the theme of sustainability and description of case studies or specific researches. We think that papers which also cover the use of the territory as a whole and not only of its resources, because the territory is also a resource, can find a place in this Special Issue. Research on the recovery of resources after the utilization of goods, typically the recovery of energy from waste or urban mining, would be a very interesting topic. Similarly, works on optimizing the use of water resources and the preparation of decision support systems for proper and sustainable use of resources, would be of great interest to readers. How one approaches the subject “environment and sustainable use of resources”, can also be developed in conjunction with issues related to energy conservation and monitoring of climate changes.
Thus, this Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of current research activities related to this topical theme.
