Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the development of human society and the increase in the demand for water, water pollution is becoming increasingly serious. Types of wastewater mainly include domestic sewage and industrial wastewater (dyeing wastewater, coking wastewater, leather wastewater, pharmaceutical wastewater, etc.). The harmful chemical components in wastewater discharged into natural water bodies without treatment will cause devastating disasters to the water quality and aquatic organisms. The consumption of polluted water can also cause a variety of diseases. Therefore, wastewater must be treated so that it meets environmental discharge standards. The technology used to treat wastewater includes physical treatment, biological treatment, and chemical treatment. Among the physical treatment technologies, adsorption method is favored by most researchers because of its simplicity, high efficiency, and low cost. Biological treatments include anaerobic treatment and aerobic treatment and has the advantages of having a simple process flow and being low cost. As an efficient and green chemical treatment technology, advanced oxidation technology has been attracting attention from many researchers because of its advantages such as mild conditions, rapid reaction, and simple operation. This Special Issue, entitled “Process Optimization and Technology Development of Water Pollution Control”, focuses on the latest novel developments in approaches and technology for the control of water pollution. This issue will publish new research papers, reviews, case reports, conference papers, etc.
