The activity of a nanocatalyst depends critically upon its structure. Accordingly, the combination of metals within the catalyst provides an opportunity for the extensive manipulation of the structure, which is a chance to discover unexpected reactivity and investigate structure–reactivity relationships. This enriches our knowledge in the design protocols of potentially active nanocatalyst systems and supplies novel active catalyst candidates. Therefore, catalysts based on bimetallic particles are of interest both from scientific and technological points of view. Recently, an increasing amount of interest has been devoted to the application of such systems in environmental engineering. A variety of bimetallic combinations and structural forms have been reported in this area. This includes especially carbon (di)oxide methanation or biomass conversion. In this Special Issue “Metal or Bimetallic Nanocatalysts for Environmental Engineering Applications” collecting original research papers, reviews and short communications, we will focus especially on low-temperature processes engaging the most promising metal conjugations.
Manuscripts concerning new innovative methods for the investigation of catalyst structures for environmental catalysis will be especially welcome. Reports on photocatalytic options are strongly encouraged.

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. Catalysts 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 2700 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.
