Water treatment is becoming of great importance at global scales due to climate-driven and/or anthropogenic impacts to both the quantity and quality of available water resources. As alternatives, water reuses such as treated wastewater, desalination, and rainwater harvesting have been increasingly applied for securing water resources.
Technical/functional progresses in treatment methods and materials as well as analytical instrumentation are required in order to mitigate the uncertainty of human health and environmenal safety related to water consumtion. Recent advances of data analysis techniques (e.g., neural networks, machine learning) have enabled us to better understand and predict the efficiencies of treatment processes and to integrate monitoring data with process control and optimization.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide scientific knowledge on treatment techniques, and discoveries and applications of new materials for water treatment and reuse purposes. We welcome both research papers and technical notes, evaluating the treatability of recently developed technologies/processes covering the scope.
Studies may emphasize on: (i) state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies for secure water treatment; (ii) advanced materials to tackle the emering pollutants such as antibotics, antibiotic resistance genes, microplastics, etc.; and (iii) modeling approaches or machine learning techniques for prediction and control.

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. Resources 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 1600 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.
