Special Issue "Environment-Friendly Electrochemical Processes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2020.
Interests: electrochemical technologies for water treatment; electrocatalytic materials (boron doped diamond and dimensionally stable anodes); electrocatalysis; electroanalysis and organic electrosynthesis
Electrochemical processes have come to be widely viewed as an emerging sustainable technology. Over the past few decades, great progress has been made in the electrochemical technologies for the treatment of effluents containing organic and inorganic pollutants. In fact, electrochemical technologies offer an alternative solution to many environmental problems in the process industry, because electrons provide a versatile, efficient, cost-effective, easily automatable, and clean reagent. The future for electrochemical processes is bright. Given the importance of these technologies, Materials, together with Professor Carlos A. Martínez-Huitle (Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil), has prepared this Special Issue to highlight the current "Environment-friendly Electrochemical Processes". Novel treatments, including technologies coupled with renewable energy sources, will be explained by experts in the field. In addition, this Special Issue provides different case studies from various industries to illustrate how these methods behave in a real-world environment. The advantages and disadvantages of each method are explained, along with advice on how to select the most suitable method which best fits the specific application needs. Their combination with conventional wastewater treatment systems is conceptually feasible, which will be also commented on by different authors. Therefore, we invite you to contribute to this Special Issue because future developments will rely upon the close collaboration of analytical chemists, engineers, and electrochemists to ensure effective the application and exploitation of these electrochemical technologies.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
