New Research on Detection and Removal of Emerging Pollutants
Emerging pollutants are a very relevant concern as regards environmental quality and public health. Air, soil, and water, as well as living organisms, and then the whole food chain, may be affected by these kinds of contaminants.
Some of them have been the focus of researchers for years—firstly, to detect it and then for achieving their removal or immobilization/inactivation. Both inorganic and organic emerging pollutants, as well as microbial emerging contaminants, are increasingly being considered a crucial threat for ecosystems and for a diversity of living beings, which has resulted in growing efforts and resources dedicated to lines of research in this regard. Many different aspects should be considered when evaluating these issues globally, including those in social and political fields.
The editors handling this topic cover a broad spectrum within this field of research and would like to encourage all authors interested to submit their best manuscripts related to emerging pollutants, whether research papers, reviews, short communications, perspectives, etc. The aim is to achieve a final set of papers that significantly improve the knowledge within this promising field, as well as open new views and perspectives where appropriate.
