Water security is closely associated with human survival and development. With the fast development of technology and industry, extremely large amounts of wastewater are produced and discharged into the environment; therefore, effective wastewater treatment is important for the protection of both human health and the ecological environment. At present, the main strategy for wastewater treatment is still the end-of-pipe treatment, in which the degradation of water pollutants requires a colossal input of energy and chemicals into the wastewater through methods such as aeration and external carbon sources. Moreover, the release of greenhouse gases during biological and chemical wastewater treatment processes is also a severe problem that has failed to attract widespread attention from researchers. Therefore, the development of emerging technologies for wastewater treatment and resource recovery is necessary and highly demanded.
The focus of this Special Issue, entitled “Emerging Technologies for Wastewater Treatment, Pollution Control and Resource Recovery” is on addressing these demands. By minimizing the cost and secondary pollution of wastewater treatment processes and maximizing the value of resources recovered from wastewater, we hope that the emerging technologies reported in this Special Issue will provide many feasible options for achieving the sustainable utilization of water resources and contribute to building a sustainable and environmentally friendly society.
We invite researchers from all around the world to submit original research articles, communications, and reviews to this Special Issue. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects:
- Novel functional materials for wastewater treatment;
- Membrane systems for water treatment and the enrichment of pollutants;
- Emerging technologies for the treatment of refractory pollutants;
- Efficient methods for resource recovery from wastewater;
- Water reuse technologies;
- Hazardous waste management;
- Technologies to promote sanitation and public health;
- The sensing and monitoring of water quality;
- Decentralized wastewater treatment;
- The fate and transportation of pollutants in the environment.
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.
