This Special Issue is concerned with treatment wetlands, which are artificial (or constructed) wetlands usually treating municipal or industrial wastewater, greywater and stormwater runoff. They are engineered systems that use natural processes, vegetation, soil and organisms to treat waters. Depending on the type of wastewater, the design of the treatment wetlands has to be adjusted, accordingly. Primary treatment of wastewater is recommended when there is a considerable amount of large suspended matter. However, treatment wetland outflow does not require further purification.
Similar to natural wetlands, treatment wetlands act as a biological filter and can remove a wide range of pollutants. These wetlands have been designed to remove fine suspended solids, organic matter, pathogens and nutrients. There are two main types of treatment wetlands: subsurface-flow and surface-flow. The planted vegetation and aggregates can play an important role in pollutant removal.
This Special Issue is particularly concerned with original research into the latest research developments in the wider treatment wetland area such as innovations in operation, integrated constructed wetlands and sustainable flood retention basins. However, critical and analytical reviews of recent trends are also encouraged.
I very much look forward to hearing about your research.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Environments 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
