Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pollution is a serious global challenge because it causes damage to ecosystems worldwide. There is no doubt that the growing concern about environmental pollution has led us to make great efforts to overcome it and its negative effects, and through multiple studies in this field, the modern trends to overcome environmental pollution include the use of multiple materials, including biochar, plants and their extracts, and other biological materials that help to overcome pollution and reduce its harmful effects on the environment. Therefore, this Special Issue was suggested to present the latest scientific research in this field. Areas of depollution that may be related to the subject of this Special Issue are also welcome.
