Special Issue Information
Organic and nutrient removal from wastewater plays an important role in water environment and ecological protection. Meanwhile, conventional biological wastewater treatment processes consume a lot of energy, carbon sources and chemicals and produce greenhouse gases. It is of great significance to realize “carbon neutralization” in wastewater treatment, and resource recovery, energy neutralization and water reuse will be the goal of wastewater treatment in the future. Relevant research has developed rapidly in recent years, such as anaerobic ammonia oxidation, denitrifying phosphorus removal, shortcut nitrification, partial denitrification and endogenous denitrification; phosphorus recovery in the form of blue iron ore and guano crystallization; energy saving through precise aeration and process control; organic and energy recovery by sludge fermentation, anaerobic methane production and sewage heat source pumps; water reclaimed by advanced oxidation, adsorption and membrane filtration; and carbon capture and storage through symbiosis of bacteria, algae, etc. These new processes and technologies accelerate the realization of “carbon neutralization” in the field of wastewater treatment.
In order to trace the research progress of “carbon neutralization” in wastewater treatment, a Special Issue has been organized by Water. This Special Issue focuses on original articles or review articles related to “carbon neutralization” in wastewater treatment, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Deep nitrogen and phosphorus removal from wastewater;
- Recovery of resources and nutrients from wastewater;
- Energy saving and recovery from wastewater treatment;
- Directional conversion and recovery of organic matter, nitrogen and phosphorus in sludge;
- Transformation and removal of new pollutants and refractory components;
- Reclaimed water reuse;
- Carbon capture and storage from wastewater treatment;
- Other related topics.

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 2200 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.
