Access to clean water and fresh water conservation are the main challenges for the global society. In the new context of circular water economy, wastewater is viewed more as a valuable resource rather than a waste stream. However, this can only be accomplished through appropriate and effective treatment that will allow for treated effluents reuse and recycling. The modern wastewater engineering approach dictates the use of hybrid treatment systems, namely combinations of different physical, biological and chemical processes. The ultimate goal is to identify the optimum combinations that would provide not only efficient but also cost-effective and sustainable treatment schemes. Current experiences imply that the proper and careful selection of a hybrid wastewater treatment system can achieve these goals.
Therefore, this Special Issue aims at presenting the state-of-the-art of hybrid systems for wastewater treatment and the recent developments in the field of combining different technologies for various wastewaters, i.e., domestic, municipal, industrial, agro-industrial. Contributions will be accepted from both research projects and experiences from full-scale applications. Review papers summarizing the existing knowledge and technological status of different hybrid systems are also welcome, after coordination with the Special Issue Editor. The potential technologies used in hybrid systems include but are not limited to:
- Activated sludge and its variants
- Extended aeration
- Membrane filtration (ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, microfiltration, reverse osmosis) & Membrane bioreactors
- Sequencing batch reactors
- Attached growth biofilm reactors
- Moving bed biofilm reactors
- Aerobic / anaerobic systems
- Natural treatment systems such as constructed wetlands, stabilization ponds, etc.
- Trickling filters
- Upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactors
- Filtration with eg activated carbon, natural rocks, synthetic media, etc.
- Dissolved air flotation
- Coagulation, flocculation, adsorption, ion exchange
- Advanced oxidation processes such as ozonation, photocatalysis, UV radiation, hydrogen peroxide oxidation, etc.

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.
