Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Taking into account the increase in the concentration of POPs (EDCs, emerging contaminants, etc.) in the environment,  scientific analysis should be extended. In this scientific area, investigations into the identification and determination of scale of environmental hazards are required. It is also important to develop efficient methods of elimination of these compounds from wastewater and protection of surface, groundwater, and water organisms from contaminants.

Data from the literature show the necessity of application of additional wastewater treatment processes, for example, advanced oxidation and/or membrane methods. In processes such as adsorption, coagulation, or membrane, the removal of pollutants takes place, whereas during advanced oxidation methods, chemical and photochemical processes result in the degradation of organic compounds. At present, special attention is paid to the development of novel adsorbents, coagulants, and membranes made of materials of higher efficiency, retention ability, persistent to fouling and able to regenerate. Moreover, studies tend to develop technological parameters of processes carried out in integrated systems consisting of a few unit processes characterized by higher efficiency.

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.
