Wastewater treatment has changed over the last thirty years, transforming from designing treatment technologies for suitable discharge into nature water bodies, using techniques such as conventional activated sludge and trickling filters, to solving various human health issues such as recycling wastewater, providing solutions to poor waste treatment, and preventative measures for pollution. The reason for the transition has simply been not only to see alternative treatment methods to creating a return such saving on energy costs within operation, but also in generating something that produce energy or be reused in other operations.Therefore, we would like to call for papers to disseminate and share findings on wastewater treatment and pollution control related research in addressing the problem of sustainability scientifically.
Papers are selected by a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, development and application.
Original research paper or reviews are invited in the following and related areas:
- Natural wastewater treatment processes
- Water reclamation and reuse
- Wastewater treatment in developing countries
- On-site wastewater treatment methods
- Energy recovery and sustainable wastewater treatment
- Ponds for wastewater treatment
- Wetland for wastewater treatment
- Green technology for wastewater treatment

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. Water is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
