Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Industrial activities can release a significant amount of pollutants into the environment, such as particulate matter (PM), sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, greenhouse gases, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and so on. These emissions from industrial sources have substantial impacts on both environmental and public health. Globally, industrial emissions play a crucial role in air pollution issues. Despite considerable progress achieved through the increasing utilization of cleaner fuels, improved combustion processes, and enhanced emission control devices, challenges associated with emerging toxic pollutants (such as ammonia, condensable particulate matter, intermediate-semi-volatile organic compounds), secondary pollution resulting from atmospheric reactions, and coordinated reductions in greenhouse gas emissions still persist in relation to industrial emissions. Therefore, it is imperative to implement effective measures for controlling industrial emissions by employing clean technologies and enforcing emission standards and regulatory policies. This Special Issue aims to present the latest advancements in understanding the characteristics of industrial emissions as well as their impacts and controls. The scope of this topic encompasses original papers, reviews, and short communications.

For this Special Issue, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Identification and quantification of industrial emissions;
  • Temporal and spatial patterns of air pollutant emissions;
  • Chemical components of PM and VOCs from industrial emissions;
  • Assessment of the impacts of industrial emissions on air quality, human health, and the ecosystem;
  • Development and evaluation of control technologies and strategies to reduce industrial emissions;
  • Analysis of policy and regulatory frameworks for managing industrial emissions and their effectiveness;
  • Case studies and best practices in industrial emission control and air quality improvement.

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. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
