Pollution Prevention, Mitigation and Sustainability

A section of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).

Section Information

Globally, the levels of pollution are becoming increasingly perturbing. The increasing levels of pollution can be linked to industrialization and urbanization, which attract the attention of researchers for their severe consequences on the quality of life and health of citizens. Pollution also has negative effects on urban infrastructure and buildings, as well as on natural ecosystems. The presence of environmental pollution raises the issue of pollution control. Pollution control strategies, in general, seek to manage a pollutant after it is emitted and reduce its impact on the environment; the pollution prevention approach, however, seeks to increase the efficiency of a process, hence reducing the amount of pollution generated at its source. We welcome papers related to pollutant discharge or emission standards, pollution prevention, pollution detection and pollution mitigation.

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following dimensions:

  • Pollution sources
    water pollution, soil pollution, air pollution, noise pollution, etc.
  • Environmental pollution and human health;
  • Pollution forecasting;
  • Pollution assessment;
  • Pollution reductions;
  • Pollution prevention and control;
  • Pollution monitoring and risk assessment;
  • Pollution exposure, response and adaption;
  • Investment, trading and financing;
  • Pollution solutions, engineering and technology;
  • Pollution treatment efficiency;
  • Public participation, perspectives/ perception;
  • Government pollution regulation;
  • Policy, management and sustainability.
