Special Issue "Membrane Fouling and Antifouling Strategies in Water and Wastewater Treatment"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 2218
With increasing water demand and deteriorating water environment, the scarcity of freshwater resource and deterioration of water environment have jointly made water crisis a salient global concern. Water and wastewater treatment can not only mitigate water pollution, but also relieve water shortage by the production of high-quality freshwater. Membrane-based technologies have been widely used for water/wastewater treatment and reclamation owing to the merits of no need of chemical addition, relatively low energy consumption and high automation. However, irreversible membrane fouling encumbers the performance and efficiency of membrane systems. Insights into membrane fouling mechanism and strategies for membrane fouling control are of great importance.
This Special Issue aims to deepen the understanding of membrane fouling phenomena and mechanisms, and propose feasible membrane fouling control strategies during water/wastewater treatment.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:
- Membrane fouling characterization
- Modeling and simulation
- Membrane fouling control
- Membrane material
- Membrane module design
- Pressure-driven membrane technology
- Electronic membrane technology
We look forward to 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. Membranes 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.
