Special Issue Information
We are pleased to announce this Collection titled “Editorial Board Members’ Collection Series: Waste Management and Recycling”. Waste management starts with the 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) sequence concept. Implementing appropriate waste management is a top priority in building a sustainable society. Sustainability is impossible without circular waste management practices. This Collection Series presents recent advances in the recovery and recycling of solid waste. New concepts to close the waste loop and application of materials have been proposed, but issues regarding low recovery efficiency, high recycling cost, and limited applicability should still be addressed.
The topics of this Collection Series include but are not limited to the following:
- Waste recycling
- Resource recovery
- Novel technologies in waste treatment
- Advanced thermochemical processing
- Innovations in biological conversion
- Environmental impact assessment of waste management
This Collection Series aims to publish a collection of research contributions illustrating recent achievements in all aspects of the development, study, and understanding of waste management and recycling. We hope to establish a collection of papers that will be of interest to scholars in the field. Contributions in the form of full papers, reviews, and communications about related topics are very welcome.
