We invite you to contribute to this Special Issue (SI) entitled “Decentralised Water Treatment Technologies”.
Conventional water treatment technologies have traditionally relied on treating contaminated water in a treatment plant; for example, pipe networks or open channels are used for the transportation of contaminated water from its source for treatment at a particular point. However, the ever-increasing pressures due to energy costs, rapid urbanization, population growth, geo-political problems, aging water infrastructure and others raised serious concerns regarding the long-term viability of these “centralized systems” to provide the essential clean water. Consequently, decentralized systems where the water treatment plant itself has the flexibility to move to a source of contaminated water seem to be emerging as a solution of interest.
In this context, centralized systems refer to those water treatment plants/units where the ability of the systems to adapt to clean water requirements to the local needs and requirements is minimum. On the other hand, there is freedom and flexibility for a decentralized system to adapt its design and apply a “fit-for-purpose” approach which makes it possible to match the requirements for treating the contaminated water, keeping the end-users in mind. In principle, these decentralised water treatment systems can rely on any, or combination of, physical, chemical and biological principles for water treatment. However, several additional issues may be addressed before the implementation of these technologies (e.g., sensor telemetry for the monitoring of these systems, artificial intelligence (AI)-driven water quality monitoring).
In addressing these trends, we aim to publish this journal Special Issue on Decentralised Water Treatment Technologies.
We welcome your contributions on any topics that address or are related to the sub-topics shown below as keywords. Both review and research papers are welcome.
We look forward to your active participation in this endeavour, and receiving your contributions.

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. Clean Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1600 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.
