Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The treatment of wastewater with activated sludge, known as a conventional biological treatment, has been widely developed. However, the removal efficiency is very low for biorecalcitrant compounds such as dyes, residues of drugs, pesticides, and hydrocarbons. Furthermore, novel processes must be developed and energy consumption must be reduced in order to reduce the environmental footprint of these types of processes. Thus, several improvements are possible, for example, through the development of green catalysts in advanced oxidation processes or the use of biobased materials and green energy production residues such as biochar, which is formed through the pyrogasification of wood biomass. Another strategy is to combine wastewater treatment and energy bioproduction directly at wastewater treatment plant sites.

With the success of the previous Special Issue, "Application of Environmentally Friendly Technologies in Green Processes",  we decided to organize a second Special Issue on this subject. This Special Issue, "Application of Environmentally Friendly Technologies in Green Processes, 2nd Edition", aims to curate novel advances in the development and applications of green processes in the fields of wastewater treatment and organic micropollutants and their implications for the future.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • The development of new green catalysts;
  • Improvements in biological treatment;
  • The production of bioenergy combined with wastewater treatment;
  • Biobased materials in wastewater treatment.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Processes 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 2400 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.
