Emerging Materials in Water and Waste Remediation Processes
New and emerging pollutants present a novel global environmental quality challenge with potentially serious threats to human health and ecosystems. These contaminants mainly include chemicals found in pharmaceuticals, personal care products, pesticides, industrial and household products, metals, surfactants, industrial additives, and solvents.
Water is a basic resource that is necessary for all living beings on the planet. However, the scarcity and contamination of water means that millions of people have limited access to it. Water pollution may occur through the introduction of chemicals into water bodies as a result of various human activities. Any amount of chemicals pollutes water, regardless of the harm they may pose to human health and the environment.
The aim of this Topic is to provide a general overview of the main concepts and current advances in the environmental field, including the use of catalytic processes as alternative treatment methods for aqueous and solid or gas pollutants, such as pesticides, herbicides, and numerous industrial chemicals, with regard to water remediation. Original research papers and short reviews addressing the synthesis and characterization of new heterogeneous catalysts, the influences of different operating parameters and reactor types, and the reaction kinetics and mechanisms and identification of intermediates are invited for submission.
