Wastewater treatment in the anaerobic approach offers many advantages compared to the conventional activated sludge (CAS) process, such as a small footprint, less waste sludge production, low greenhouse gas emissions, low cost, and energy recovery potential. The reactor configurations used for anaerobic treatment generally include continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR), up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor (UASB), anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR, which combined the anaerobic digestion with membrane separation), and microbial fuel cell (MFC, combined with electrochemistry). In the anaerobic treatment process, the technologies included not only traditional anaerobic digestion, but also some approaches based on newly discovered anaerobic microorganisms (such as the use of anammox for nitrogen removal). This Special Issue on " Sustainable Technologies by Advanced Anaerobic Wastewater Treatment " of the Journal of Sustainability aims to highlight the recent advancements on anaerobic treatment technology in wastewater treatment and discuss the challenges and opportunities for the future development.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:
- New technologies of anaerobic treatment;
- Novel processes combined with advanced technology;
- System design, control and optimization;
- Microbial community analysis;
- Kinetic analysis and flow analysis;
- Practical application on various real wastewater
(e.g., industrial wastewater, domestic wastewater, landfill leachate, etc.).
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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 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.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 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.
