Biological treatment is typically applied for wastewater remediation due to the advantages of high efficiency and low cost. Its main principle is to degrade or transform the organic, inorganic and micropollutants in wastewater through the metabolism of microorganisms. In recent years, sustainable biological treatment technologies (e.g., anaerobic digestion, anammox, microbial fuel cells, etc.) have been also successfully developed to reduce operational costs or recover resources from wastewater. For both traditional and sustainable wastewater systems, the function of biological control plays a significant role by affecting the microbial activity and abundance. Appropriate biological control parameters and strategies can help to obtain higher operating efficiency, lower energy and more products.
This Special Issue will concentrate on highlighting timely research studies that address the function of biological control in wastewater management and resource recovery. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Biological control and mechanisms in traditional or sustainable wastewater systems;
- Achievement and application of sustainable biological wastewater treatments;
- Production and characterization of microbial metabolites in wastewater management;
- Biological control in the treatment of constructed wetlands;
- Function of biological control in resource and energy recoveries from wastewater;
- Biological resource utilization technology in wastewater.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
