Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Scientific research conducted in the world irrefutably indicates that changes taking place in the environment become irreversible. According to the information provided, including by the World Health Organization (WHO), pollutants emitted to the air and the state of air quality in urban areas both reduce the quality of life in cities and directly affect human health—causing changes with various effects in the human body. For this reason, for example, the implementation of the goal of minimizing the emission of air pollutants into the atmosphere should be considered as a very important element related to the reduction of environmental degradation, which fits in with the sustainable development goals defined as: good health and quality of life (goal 3), sustainable cities and communities (goal 11) and climate action (goal 13). In order to assess the effectiveness of the implemented solutions related to the reduction of emissions to air, it is necessary to develop the necessary, highly efficient, green and zero-emission technologies enabling, inter alia, reduction, and in connection with the assumed ambitious goals, ultimately the total reduction of air pollutant emissions, their control and monitoring. Therefore, we invite you to publish works that include:

  • low and zero emission technologies in air protection;
  • modern methods of air pollution monitoring;
  • modern tools in the control and assessment of air pollutant emissions;
  • low-cost air pollution monitoring systems;
  • air pollution control systems;
  • air quality management;
  • modeling and evaluation of air pollution.

These topics are only examples. Other emerging topics in this field of science are also welcome.

In accordance with the above context, we invite you to submit original research or review papers.

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.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 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.
