Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

As we work towards the elimination of waste and the continual use of resources through a circular economy approach, technologies such as Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) will play a key enabling role in creating value and resources in areas such as water purification, wastewater reuse, clean energy production, carbon capture and green chemistry. This Topic bridges the gaps in catalysis and the circular economy, demonstrating the synergy and interdependence of these subject areas—only through interdisciplinary collaborations can we work to ensure pure and applied research addresses sustainable development and drives economic growth. We welcome papers from all remits of the above areas and AOPs, in particular, manuscripts describing novel catalysts and reactor configurations, the use of solar energy, scale-up studies, the conversion of waste to fuel and/or chemical precursors, water splitting, carbon dioxide sequestration, hydrogen production, life-cycle analysis, resource generation, water treatment and water reuse.
