Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Traditionally, solutions for environmental problems have been developed based on the goal of being in compliance with regulatory standards for selected environmental pollutants. However, the current pressure to improve the sustainability of our society necessitates a more holistic approach in developing such solutions. This Special Issue deals with innovation in environmental science and engineering, which addresses beyond the traditional goal of meeting the regulatory limit, such as the development of greener and/or more sustainable environmental solutions, and evaluation of the sustainability of existing and/or novel environmental solutions. This Special Issue welcomes manuscripts presenting efforts to develop environmental solutions that use greener energy/resources, convert wastes into greener products, and are designed to improve the environmental/economic sustainability of the currently-implemented processes. Manuscripts discussing the life-cycle of environmental impacts and/or life-cycle costs of the currently-implemented and/or novel processes for environmental solutions are also welcomed.

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. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
