Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

The management of organic solid waste and wastewater is a global challenge due to stricter environmental regulations, ecosystem impacts, climate change, and the need to valorize waste. This requires multidisciplinary approaches that provide comprehensive solutions to these complex problems.

This Topic seeks to collect contributions on the most recent advances in organic solid waste and wastewater management. Topics of interest include issues related to wastewater resource recovery, emerging pollutants, development and use of advanced materials, including nanomaterials, green and sustainable technologies, waste to energy or to valuable products, biochar production, advanced oxidation processes, biological nutrient removal, food waste valorization, anaerobic digestion advances, microbial community studies, climate change mitigation, and circular economy among others.

We are pleased to invite you to send your contributions to this multidisciplinary topic. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

Ammonia, nitrate, and phosphate in animal manure used as fertilizer reduce environmental quality by running off agricultural fields into natural water resources. Runoff and seepage water from five soil management practices (chicken manure CM, sewage sludge SS, chitin CH, biochar Bio, and no-amendment NA control plots), were investigated for their potential nutrient catching down the field slope of a sweet potato, Ipomoea balata field. The results revealed that CM-amended soil released the greatest runoff water volume (172.6 L plot −1) compared to the control treatment (98.6 L plot −1), indicating a 75% increase in the runoff water volume. CM also increased the percolated water into the rhizosphere of the growing plants by 55% compared to the control, whereas SS reduced the runoff water volume and increased the leaching water by 36% and 82%, respectively (a desirable attribute of water conservation), compared to the control plots. The concentration of PO4−3 ions in the percolated water from the biochar treatment was significantly greater compared to the other treatments, indicating there was no impact of biochar on binding PO4−3 ions. SS reduced the nitrate concentrations in the runoff and increased the seepage water volume percolated towards the roots of the growing plants; a desired attribute for preventing surface water contamination by nitrates. Observing the precipitation pattern and improving the N application rate are recommended. Full article
