Special Issue "Towards the Awareness of a Sustainable Progress in Membrane Technology Field"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 November 2021.
Interests: membrane preparation and functionalization; catalytic membrane; catalytic membrane reactor development
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Catalysts: Catalysis in Biorefinery
Interests: Membrane processes coupled with specific interactions and photocatalytic membrane reactors in water treatment; catalytic and photocatalytic membrane reactors for partial oxidation or hydrogenation of organic molecules
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect original research papers or reviews which report the recent efforts and progresses on membrane technologies that take into account the principles of sustainability and green chemistry.
The improvement of green-based initiatives, spreading new and improved technologies into the industry to protect the human health and the environment for the future is an important challenge. The goal of the sustainability formulated in the ‘‘Brundtland Report’’ is to “meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.
In this view, membrane technologies can also play a central role aiming to maximize the (socioeconomic and environmental) value from renewable resources, including residues and side-stream, encouraging the reuse and recycling of products, aiming towards zero waste generation by developing sustainability processes.

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. Molecules 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.
