Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Water resources are crucial and valuable for everyone. However, in recent years, due to industrial water use and serious water pollution, knowing how to achieve sustainable availability of water resources is becoming a heated topic for researchers. Advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) are important chemical treatment procedures which can be widely applied in water treatment, such as in the purification and remediation of water resources. A number of outstanding scholars have made contributions by exploring oxidation techniques to degrade organic pollutants, remove contaminants, and disinfect water. Water scarcity and high-efficiency utilization are under increasing threat. By exploring and improving AOPs, we aim to promote sustainable and effective water treatment solutions, addressing the growing global demand for clean and safe water resources.

This Special Issue aims to showcase the latest advancements in advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) and their applications in water treatment. Topics include, but are not limited to, advanced oxidation processes, wastewater treatment, and optimization strategies centred around sustainable water utilization. We look forward to receiving your contributions and fostering meaningful discussions in this important field.

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.
