Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With rapid urbanization and industrialization, the deterioration in water resources has emerged as a pressing global concern that requires urgent attention and effective solutions. The development and application of various advanced technologies in water purification have shown promising potential in improving water quality, which are crucial to establishing a safe and reliable water environment.

The advancement of scientific technology thrives on collaborations, sharing, and learning to overcome critical challenges together. Gathering the latest progress, challenges, and achievements is crucial to promoting the consolidation of knowledge and techniques in the field. The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together the innovative concepts, fruitful results, and valuable insights in the current development of advanced water purification techniques. Topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following: advanced oxidation/reduction processes, catalytic processes, advanced adsorption processes, membrane technologies, electrocoagulation, and nanotechnology, including innonative adsorbent materials and pilot scaple applications. Contributions related to waste management and resource recovery/valorization in wastewater treatment processes are also encouraged. This Special Issue welcomes the submission of original research manuscripts and reviews.
