Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Industrial effluents are one of the important pollution sources in the pollution of the water environment. During the last century, a huge amount of those effluents was discharged into rivers, lakes, and coastal areas. This resulted in serious pollution problems. There are many types of industrial effluents based on different industries and contaminants; each sector produces its own particular combination of pollutants. Like the various characteristics of industrial effluents, their treatment must be designed specifically for the particular type of effluent produced. The amount of effluents depends on the technical level of process in each industry sector and will be gradually reduced with the improvement of industrial technologies. The increasing rates of industrial effluents in developing countries are thought to be much higher than those in developed countries. This fact predicts that industrial wastewater pollution, as a mean environment pollution problem, will move from developed countries to developing countries in the early 21st century. So, it is mandatory to find the appropriate technique in order to efficiently treat those effluents. Some indicative/typical methods are biological treatments, adsorption, flocculation, oxidation, membranes, filtration, etc. This Special Issue on “Treatment of Industrial Effluents” seeks high-quality works and topics (not only those) focusing on the latest approaches to the treatment of industrial effluents (not only real but also synthetic/lab-simulated effluents), including biological, chemical, adsorption, flocculation, oxidation, membranes, filtration, etc.

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.
