Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Organic waste comprises sewage sludge, agricultural and forestry biomass, industrial organic waste, food waste, animal waste, etc. These wastes contain a wealth of chemical energy, and their clean and efficient conversion presents an opportunity for the dual benefits of resource recovery and environmental conservation. Similarly, in the face of the dual challenges posed by water pollution and water scarcity, wastewater regeneration and recycling have emerged as critical measures able to enhance the efficiency of water resource utilization. Therefore, the development of efficient and cost-effictive technologies for advanced wastewater treatment becomes imperative.

This Special Issue focuses on novel technologies for organic waste treatment and the advanced treatment of WWTPs. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following: biotransformation technologies (such as anaerobic digestion and aerobic composting), pyrolysis gasification, pyrolysis carbonization, and carbon emission reduction (for organic waste treatment); adsorption and ion exchange, membrane separation technologies, advanced oxidation processes, constructed wetlands, bacteria–microalgae treatment, novel biological denitrification technologies; and the development of various combination processes (for WWTPs advanced treatment).

We highly encourage the submission of original research papers and welcome review articles. This Special Issue aims to provide an academic platform for researchers to share their latest achievements and innovative technologies in the field of organic waste treatment and the advanced treatment of WWTPs.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
