Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The 15th EARTH Symposium will offer all participants knowledge of the latest advances in waste recycling and management, including separating valuable materials from waste, waste treatment and minimization, recovering energy from waste, wastewater treatment, environmental impact assessment, metals recycling, environmental law and regulation, and other important topics related to resources and materials recycling.
a. Focus: This Special Issue focuses on the introduction of green technologies for resources and materials recycling throughout East Asia (Korea, Japan, Taiwan, China, and Thailand).
b. Scope: The notable level of urbanization throughout the world is accompanied by the exponential increase in power demand and limited resources. There are growing pressures and challenges from issues such as climate change, water scarcity, GHG emissions, increasing demand for energy and land loss, etc. We are determined to protect the planet from degradation through sustainable consumption and protection by managing its natural resources. Therefore, recycling is the best option for preventing a lack of resources for the needs of future generations.
We are especially interested in the topics listed below:
- Resources processing (comminution/separation)
- Hydrometallurgy (leaching/purification separation/electrowinning)
- Pyrometallurgy (thermal pretreatment/smelting)
- Organic-inorganic material processing (high-purity/powder/alloy)
- Mine waste (hazardous matter removal/ recovery of valuables)
- Waste recycling and management (separating valuable materials from waste/ waste minimization, recovering energy from waste
- Metal recycling technologies/ recycling policies
- Environmental impact assessment, environmental laws, and regulations
c. Purpose of the Special Issue: The purpose of this Special Issue is to introduce the new recycling technology trends, new developments, and advanced techniques in the valuable recycling system of waste management. Therefore, the scope and aim for this Special Issue are to introduce recent research on resources and advanced recycling technologies.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
