Special Issue "Wastewater Treatment in Membrane Bioreactors: Features and Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (25 May 2021).
Interests: wastewater treatment; sustainable development; urban wastewater management; membrane technologies; modernization of water facilities
The concept of sustainable development is a global trend that focuses on the development of solutions for a particular area of the national economy that will not only be the most effective in terms of their direct application, but will also reduce the impact on the environment, and their implementation will require minimal costs. From this point of view, wastewater treatment technologies fit perfectly into the ideology of sustainable development, since high-quality treatment contributes to the creation of a high-quality environment and reduces the negative impact on water bodies, soil, atmosphere, etc. At the same time, wastewater treatment technologies require high energy consumption, and the stricter the requirements for the quality of treatment, the higher the costs will be.
If we consider urban wastewater treatment facilities, the application of various technologies should be evaluated in terms of their implementation at new facilities or the upgrading of existing ones. In both cases, it is mandatory to ensure the required values of the maximum permissible discharge under various restrictions: technological, industrial, economic, etc. One of the relatively new, and therefore promising, methods of wastewater treatment is the application of membrane bioreactors for wastewater treatment of various origins.
This Special Issue aims to accumulate new knowledge obtained through the research, study and consideration of the principles and features of wastewater treatment in membrane bioreactors under various conditions and modes of operation. In addition, the issue of energy and the economic efficiency of this technology is of particular interest.

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. 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 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.
