Over the past few decades, there has been increasing concern about the continuous degradation of the environment by anthropogenic and industrial activities. Modern society needs cutting-edge technological innovations that will boost industry productivity as well as environmental sustainability. Nanotechnology represents the next wave of scientific and engineering innovation, and will have a profound impact on a variety of industries, including the environment, aerospace, energy, information technology, medical, and transportation fields. Particularly, it is anticipated that using engineered nanomaterials will have a positive impact on sustainability and the environment by lowering the production of hazardous waste and energy use. This global “nanorevolution” considers that engineered nanomaterials are becoming a hot topic for environmental applications, including in water purification and resource recovery.
This Special Issue aims to bring together valuable scientific publications on how nanotechnological solutions could be applied, or are currently being used, in resource recovery technologies, wastewater environmental remediation, and clean energy production. We invite the submission of original research articles and reviews that address one or more of (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Design of nanomaterials for environmental applications;
- Green synthesis of nanomaterials;
- Nanotechnological solutions for the environment;
- Sustainable water purification technologies based on nanomaterials;
- Innovative nanotechnological processes for wastewater remediation;
- Heavy metal removal;
- Organic matter degradation;
- Nanosensors for monitoring water quality;
- Efficient waste recovery and reuse using engineered nanomaterials;
- Revalorization of wastes;
- Nanocatalysts for alternative energies;
- Nanostructured solar panels;
- Energy storage;
- Novel energy sources.
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.
