Special Issue "Sustainable Strategies for Remediation of Contaminated Water and Soil"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 18 February 2022.
Interests: advanced oxidation processes; electrochemical treatments; soil remediation
Human activities and the advancements in modern technologies—mainly those related to industrial processes—are causing significant pollution due to the release of pollutants into the environment (soil, water). Thus, the development of sustainable strategies for their treatment is a societal demand that needs to be met.
This Special Issue aims to cover any topics related to the design, implementation, and development of traditional or innovative treatments of contaminated soil and/or water, such as bioremediation, physicochemical or advanced oxidation processes, and combined techniques. This Special Issue also intends to gather multidisciplinary approaches covering well-documented techniques, experiments, or modelling approaches to quantify or validate the effectiveness of the developed treatments, from laboratory to larger scales. The primary areas of interest to this Special Issue include but are not limited to:
(1) Sustainable and cost-effective water treatment technologies;
(2) Soil treatment technologies that can be easily implemented;
(3) Combined treatment technologies for soil and/or water.
In this Special Issue, we invite submissions exploring cutting-edge research and recent advances in the remediation of water and contaminated soils. Both original research (research articles as well as short communications) and critical reviews about scientific and technical information are welcomed.

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 papers will be 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. Applied Sciences 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 2300 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.
