Editorial for the Special Issue: Filters in Drinking Water Treatment
AbstractSlow sand filters were first used for safe drinking water provision during the 19th century. The technology has been gradually improved and utilized at several scales. Based on their intrinsic limitations other filtration systems have been developed, including membrane technologies. The universal applicability of filtration in drinking water supply makes filters a device of choice to facilitate the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (‘drinking water for all by 2030’). Available strategies to rationally design efficient and sustainable water filters are scattered in the literature and are difficult to access and evaluate by starting researchers. The present Special Issue summarizes knowledge on two key filtration systems for drinking water supply: (i) membrane technology and (ii) metallic iron based filters. The five (5) accepted articles are being briefly presented herein. View Full-Text
