Air pollution has played a negative role in human health, ecological environment, and climate change over the past 100 years, which has significantly worsened in recent decades and is likely to be persistent in the future. Such “sustainable” threats, without doubt, require sustainable assessment and management. However, huge gaps remain due to not only vast puzzles in air pollution mechanisms but also insufficient techniques for sustainable assessment and management. A catastrophic consequence of this is that there is still a large amount of air pollution worldwide that is not being monitored or controlled.
The objective of this Special Issue is to provide broad scientific advances in the sustainable assessment and management of air pollution, with special technical focuses on breakthroughs in fundamental theories, real-world measurements, retrospective simulations, trend forecasts, source apportionments, end-of-pipe treatment, and policymaking. Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
- New knowledge of air pollution mechanisms;
- New techniques of anthropogenic emission reduction;
- New insight on energy structure adjustment;
- New path to industrial transformation;
- New cost–benefit analysis on anthropogenic emission reduction;
- Advances in sustainable in situ measurements of air pollutants;
- Advances in sustainable satellite measurements of air pollutants;
- Advances in sustainable policies of air pollution control.

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. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
