Special Issue Information
Water pollution control technologies have significantly improved the quality of the water environment, driving water resources to be used and developed more efficiently and rationally. However, with the simultaneous increase in energy demand in recent decades, more energy-saving schemes for water treatment need to be proposed. During the water treatment processes, substances other than water are usually considered as pollutants which require energy for removal. If we transform these unsatisfactory pollutants into fuel, energy, or energy carriers, water purification and energy production can be achieved simultaneously. Therefore, this Special Issue intends to present efficient water treatment technologies and fuel production processes in water treatment from theory, design, and experiment to their practical use.
Areas relevant to water treatment technologies and fuel production in water include, but are not limited to, water treatment technologies, new materials for water treatment, new reactors and equipment for water treatment, energy and fuel production technologies in water, and new materials for energy production. The objects of water treatment include drinking water, wastewater, groundwater, reuse water, etc. Energy and fuel processes include, but are not limited to, hydrogen, methane, formic acid, and other carbon dioxide reduction products.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 2300 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.
