Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The increase in public awareness of topics concerning the impact of anthropogenic activities on the environment and human health requires robust efforts by the scientific community to corroborate generic informations. Among the most sensitive subjects are the treatment and degradation of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and inorganic pollutants. This broad spectrum includes PFAs, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals or nitrates, sulphates and phosphates.

The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together original research articles and reviews that have a multidisciplinary approach, with a particular focus on the investigation of metabolic and microbiological implications for the understanding of the most suitable process solution, its impact and the concrete applicative implementation.

Dr. Gaetano Zuccaro
Guest Editor
