Good quality of water and soil is essential for human health, to sustain the biodiversity of aquatic and soil ecosystems and to ensure healthy agriculture and food production.
For certain contaminants, such as arsenic, long-term exposure even to small quantities can lead to serious health problems over time.
We are pleased to invite you to submit research contributions relevant but not limited to the monitoring and removal or containment or treatment of different inorganic and organic contaminants such as heavy metal(oid)s, microplastics, toxins or pesticides from different matrices such as water soil, sludges or wastewater, which still remain a challenge.
Much progress has been made toward achieving physicochemical or nature-based solutions to monitor fast, manage, and remove pollutants, but many efforts will have to be made.
This Special Issue aims to provide recent research advancements in soil and water quality monitoring and decontamination by developing sustainable and cost-effective technologies, which are the main way to achieve the Green Deal’s “zero pollution “ambition.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
