Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electrochemical technology has great potential and broad application prospects in wastewater treatment. Via electrolysis, capacitive adsorption, and electrocoagulation, etc., pollutants and harmful substances can be effectively removed from wastewater and the biodegradability of wastewater improved. However, there are still some problems in the practical application of electrochemical technology, such as poor stability of electrode materials, high energy consumption, and the need for further improvement in the efficiency of electrocatalysis and capacitive deionization. This Special Issue will focus on new explorations in electrochemical technology, including electrode materials, the interfacial electrochemical process, pollutant reduction kinetics, removal mechanisms, and practical applications in wastewater treatment, addressing the basic principles and technical issues in electrochemical wastewater treatment and further improving its efficiency and feasibility of application. This Special Issue will also explore the combination of electrochemical technology and other wastewater treatment technologies to achieve complementarity among various technologies and the effective treatment of different types of wastewater.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Water 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 2600 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.
