Special Issue "Ecological Risk Assessment of Emerging Pollutants in Drinking Water"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 April 2022) | Viewed by 3678
Interests: aquatic environment protection; water treatment; drinking water; emerging pollutants; advanced oxidation processes; membrane filtration; ecological risk assessment
Due to their wide use and incomplete elimination, emerging pollutants have been frequently detected in various aquatic environments. Although the concentrations of these pollutants are generally found at low levels, their presence is considered to pose a threat to aquatic organisms and human health. However, the occurrence and risks of emerging pollutants in tap water and related water sources is still largely unknown. There is also limited information available on the removal, transportation, and transformation of aqueous emerging pollutants. Given that the emerging pollutants in drinking water may threaten human health, special attention should be paid to these pollutants.
We invite research and review papers on, but not limited to, the following research areas:
- Detection methods for emerging pollutants in drinking water;
- Ecological effect of emerging pollutants in water;
- Ecological risk assessment of water contaminated with emerging pollutants;
- Removal of emerging pollutants from water;
- Transportation and transformation of emerging pollutants.
This Special Issue will include research from around the world to face the challenges associated with emerging pollutants in drinking water and the related risks.
