Freshwater is crucial for human well-being and sustainable socio-economic development. Worldwide, an estimated 748 million people remain without access to an improved source of drinking water, and water demand for manufacturing is expected to increase by 400 percent between 2000 and 2050, globally. About 2.5 billion people remain without access to improved sanitation, especially in Sub-Saharan countries. A large quantity of water is wasted as wastewater, arising from several activities, such as industrial and agricultural activities. Environmental pollution, arising from the discharge of untreated wastewater, is increasing, and the quest for finding different water and wastewater treatment methods is highly encouraged, especially for developing countries and for areas which lack community piped drinking water and sufficient energy supply. Therefore, this Special Issue seeks to highlight new studies and research highlighting recent advancements with regard to water and wastewater treatment and re-use.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- New techniques for water and wastewater treatment
- Methods for water analysis and water quality monitoring
- Development of different materials for water and wastewater treatment
- Application of nanotechnology in wastewater treatment process
- Description of water utilities in developing countries
- Case studies for the application of adsorption process for real wastewater treatment:
- Optimization of the treatment process
- Production of biofilters
- Reuse of treated water and its environmental impact
- Contaminants in water and wastewater
- Biological wastewater treatment:
- Zero liquid discharge
- Brine treatment
