Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
We welcome you to contribute to the Special Issue “Microbial Action in Wastewater and Sludge” with original articles and reviews addressing recent knowledge on: microbial removal and transformation of phosphorus and nitrogen, impact of toxic compounds (e.g., drugs, heavy metals, aromatic hydrocarbons, endocrine disrupting compounds) on biological activity of sewage sludge microbiome, and participation of microorganisms in degradation/transformation of contaminants. In connection with the above, changes in the functional capacity and genetic diversity of living microorganisms, their enzymatic activity, as well as new strategies that are designed to protect the structure and activity of the activated sludge microbial communities against xenobiotics will also be accepted. Articles on the use of microbial inocula with specific metabolic potential towards increasing the efficiency of contaminants removal during wastewater treatment and new bioremediation technology including nanotechnology will be expected.

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.
