Special Issue Information
Nations across the globe have sought to develop green economies through innovations. To move to a green economy, innovations in sustainable water management are vital, considering that water is intricately linked to other essential resources while contributing to biodiversity. However, water shortage is becoming worse over time due to the short supply and the rapid increase in demand for clean water caused by the unprecedented climate change and an exploding population. As a result, clean water supply has come to the fore as a major issue. To address these issues, many researchers have dedicated enormous efforts to developing novel membranes and membrane processes for water treatment.
This Special Issue aims to share recent advances in membrane materials and membrane processes for water and wastewater treatment. The topics include but are not limited to membrane fabrications using novel materials (e.g., mixed-matrix membranes (MMMs), metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), and nanofibers) and innovations in the existing membrane processes related to reverse and forward osmosis (RO and FO), pressure-retarded osmosis (PRO), membrane distillation (MD), wastewater treatment using membrane bioreactors (MBRs), biogas recovery using membrane contactors, and membrane capacitive deionization. All interested authors are invited to submit their original research papers, review papers, and perspectives on the topics.

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 2200 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.
