Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

At present, researchers have the responsibility of responding to the environmental, economic and social needs of innovative technological solutions that fit into both the action program of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the European Green Deal Implementation Strategy.

One of the current challenges is to develop methods of CO2 capture from power plants, combined heat and power plants, coke plants and waste disposal plants. Methods to reduce CO2 emissions using innovative techniques are essential. Strategies for waste management should be provided in accordance with circular economy principles. In particular, taking into account the 6R concept based on the principles of refuse, reduce, reuse, repair, recycle and rethink.

In economic terms, the results of this research should attract many industries. The developed technologies should fill the gap in the market by proposing low-cost and effective methods for the purification of exhaust gases, utilization and waste management.

In terms of environmental and social sustainable development, the scientific research should fit directly into activities aiming to counteract climate change and its effects. Implementation of the innovative solutions helps to improve air quality, and the management of the generated waste will reduce its storage. As a result, the quality of life and health of society can be improved.
