Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the global population on the rise and industrial activities expanding, the issue of wastewater pollution has escalated, posing threats to both the environment and human health. Pollutants such as heavy metals, antibiotics, microplastics, and others not only contaminate water sources but also present risks to human health through the food chain. It is imperative that we take urgent action to effectively treat wastewater and mitigate the harm it poses to both the environment and public health. In response to these challenges, our focus is on effective approaches for removing pollutants from wastewater.

This Topic serves as a vital platform for sharing recent advancements in the removal of toxic substances such as heavy metals, radionuclides, microplastics, PFAS, and antibiotics. We aim to explore methods such as membrane separation, adsorption, and advanced oxidation technologies, offering both a venue for comprehensive reviews and a space for original research contributions. Insights into the economic aspects of green or clean technology for water treatment are also highly encouraged.
