(This article belongs to the Special Issue Constructed Wetlands for Water Treatment: New Developments)
Constructed wetlands (CWs) are currently regarded as established eco-technologies to treat water pollution. Although considered near-natural systems, they are totally engineered solutions for which research has been actively developed over the past decades. This paper provides a brief meta-analysis on the latest scientific publications in the field and an overview of the special issue focused on the new developments in the use of CWs for water treatment. The selected papers cover a wide range of relevant developments in the field, including the use of different CW system designs, the capacity to treat different types of pollutants, and studies aiming at getting a better understanding of the treatment processes in CWs.
