Membranes have important environmental applications ranging from water treatment to wastewater treatment and reuse, desalination, air filtration, etc. Various membrane-based processes have been involved, including reverse osmosis (RO), nanofiltration (NF), ultrafiltration (UF), microfiltration (MF), membrane bioreactor (MBR), membrane distillation (MD), forward osmosis (FO), membrane contactor, etc. These processes have been widely used for pollution control, resource recovery, and energy generation. They play a key role in the removal of pathogens, heavy metals, micropollutants, and other harmful contaminants. New membrane materials and structures have been developed to greatly enhance their permeability, selectivity, and stability in these applications.
This Special Issue on “Membranes for Environmental Applications 2020” of Membranes highlights the latest developments and future perspectives of various membrane-based environmental applications. Both reviews and original articles are welcome.

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. Membranes 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 1800 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.
