Special Issue "Treatment of Wastewater and Drinking Water through Advanced Technologies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2017).
Interests: membrane bioreactors (MBR); wastewater treatment; membrane technology
Water has become a challenge of global dimensions. Population growth, industrial development and urbanization increase have caused a high consumption of water resources and the deterioration of their quality. Thus, the supply of safe drinking water and wastewater management for public health constitute the most important priorities for water sustainability. In light of this, drinking water and wastewater treatment plants are necessary to treat raw water for drinking-water purposes and wastewater for water pollution control. In this regard, the development of advanced technologies for water treatment is essential to comply with the legislative requirements regarding the water quality.
This Special Issue aims to assemble contributions on advanced technologies applied to the treatment of wastewater and drinking water. We seek contributions that analyze water treatment systems with the objective of modeling, designing and optimizing the different processes to improve the control and prediction of their behavior and to manage the future water supply.

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 papers will be 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 monthly journal published by MDPI.
