Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Biological wastewater treatment is a modern technique that is designed to degrade pollutants dissolved in wastewater by the action of microorganisms. This Special Issue of Water focuses on the current state of research on biological wastewater treatment. New research papers, reviews and case reports are welcome in this Special Issue.
This Special Issue aims to serve as a platform for new scientific evidence on the biological processes of contaminants (chemical, microbial, anthropogenic particles such as nanoparticles or microplastics) and their removal from water and wastewater, as well as articles devoted to advanced biological technological solutions and their applications in environmental remediation.
Here are some examples of topics that could be addressed in this Special Issue:
- Biological treatment technologies;
- Wastewater treatment;
- Hazardous pollutant abatement;
- Biodegradation pathway;
- Biofilm viability;
- Extracellular polymeric substances;
- Membrane-aerated biofilm reactor;
- Bioelectrochemical system;
- Semiconductor-biological hybrid system;
- Microalgal–bacterial symbiotic system.

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 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.
