Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Global warming is the phenomenon of temperatures rising in the atmosphere and ocean, which is mainly due to a large amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions generated by human activities. Many countries are paying attention to the reduction of GHG emissions by developing related technologies, such as mineral carbonation, recycling of industrial by-products, extraction of valuable components from wastes, water purification utilizing wastes, and so on.
- Focus: This Special Issue focuses on the introduction of research trends and emerging technologies, contributing to the mitigation of current climate change.
- Scope: The current major challenge is global warming. As we know, CO2 is the major emission and causes global warming. The most representative ways to reduce CO2 from the atmosphere is carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS). Carbon capture and utilization (CCS) has some disadvantages, such as the leakage of CO2 from sites, while CCUS technologies, such as carbon mineralization, are more stable and reliable compared to CCS technologies.
Therefore, the scope and aim for this Special Issue are to introduce recent research on CCUS and related technologies. We are especially interested in the topics listed below:
- Carbon mineralization
- Waste paper recycling and application of carbon mineralization
- Manufacturing eco-friendly cementitious materials from waste residues
- Waste water treatment, challenges and assessments
- Convergence technologies for sustainable climate change challenges
3. Purpose of the Special Issue: The purpose of this Special Issue is to introduce advanced techniques and research that have helped to reduce CO2 emissions and to utilize CO2 for the manufacturing of valuable products.

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. Sustainability 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 1900 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.
