The global society has experienced a tremendous development since the establishment of the first human civilizations, but no more so than in recent years, when societal development has further intensified thanks to the changes brought forth by the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Indeed, we are currently experiencing greater levels of energy, efficiency, productivity, comprehension, creativity, and innovation, all in our effort to continue on this path of significant scientific and industrial accomplishments. Societal development in particular is a continuous, unabated process, interlocking successive generations to one another. This development is necessary to achieve a decent quality of life; however, the rapid transformations we have experienced in the recent past must be accompanied by the exploration of sustainable approaches to them, and indeed, experts have sought to identify such approaches.
These approaches include modeling to deal with simulation, change of matter, time and space, analytical and statistical analyses, and real case studies for future prediction. The enhancement of all the processes currently used is undoubtedly essential to account for the escalation of various demands stemming from the population growth to the tune of approximately 10 billion by 2050. These processes include physical, biological, and chemical modes for sustainable technicality, treatment, bioremediation, control, production, and development, but also, and perhaps more importantly, applications corresponding to feedstock and products, new materials, operations, systems, theories on identifying and managing tangible and intangible resources, which are indispensable prerequisites in attaining sustainable societal development. Therefore, the prime intention of this Special Issue is to document novel “Sustainable Modeling, Processes, and Applications for Societal Development”. The knowledge gaps in the field of sustainability and societies must eventually be curtailed to create a global harmony whilst enriching the natural environments, and this is the purpose of this Special Issue.
