Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2020.
Interests: environmental science and technology; wastewater treatment and management; constructed wetlands; atomic force microscopy
Even though municipal wastewater management is a well-established field, there are still many challenges that need to be faced so as to reach a stage of a real sustainable municipal wastewater management that would protect both the environment and humans’ health, be energy-, water-, and cost-efficient, and have the ability to adapt to the current environment and the needs of the community.
Important challenges for the field of wastewater management that could contribute to the scope of the current Special Issue include: (a) new developments in wastewater treatment, (b) wastewater collection infrastructure issues and dealing with aged infrastructures, (c) effluent and sludge disposal and reuse, (d) new developments in respective policy and regulations, and (e) energy management.
The Special Issue welcomes original research and review papers focused on the latest knowledge and innovations in the field of municipal wastewater management in developed, developing, and underdeveloped countries, concerning large, small, pilot or experimental-scale systems. The papers must show originality and address knowledge gaps related to the scopes of the Special Issue.
