Air and climate protection have become one of the biggest civilization challenges in recent years. In many highly industrialized and economically emerging countries in the world, there is a problem of air pollution (mainly associated with the use of fossil fuels in energetics, industry, heating of residential houses, and transport) and progressive climate change (related to increasing greenhouse gas emissions). Therefore, there is an urgent need for new, low-emission technologies, effective and low-cost methods for reducing emissions, more reliable emission monitoring methods, and new tools for forecasting and monitoring air quality and climate change. These are the purposes of the present Special Issue, which should, in particular, include the following topics:
- current research on low-emission: fuels, industrial technologies, and energy generation, including RES;
- promising ways to reduce/eliminate emissions from low municipal sources and from transport;
- innovative methods of waste gas purification;
- development of emission and immission control methods;
- prospective ways of counteracting climate changes;
- problems of indoor air protecting;
- development of air quality mathematical modeling methods;
- new directions in forecasting the effects of air pollution and climate change;
- new trends in odor control and air quality management.
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 1800 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.
