Physicochemical processes have always played a vital role in wastewater treatment, as they can treat non-biodegradable effluents. Electrochemistry has always stood out, as it has many advantages such as high efficiency, easy scaling, combination, and synergy with other technologies such as fenton reaction, photocatalysis, coagulation and even biological reactors. Additionally, if combined with renewable energy sources, it can provide a unified green solution. In recent years, the development of new electrocatalytic materials has led to a significant increase in the environmental applications of electrochemistry. Under this perspective, this Special Issue of Water welcomes the application of environmental electrochemistry, including:
- Electrochemical treatment of agro-industrial wastewater;
- Environmental electrochemistry for the removal of persistent pollutants and pathogens;
- Design and scale-up of electrochemical reactors;
- New electrocatalytic material for wastewater treatment;
- Combination of electrochemistry with other processes (electrocoagulation, electro fenton, photoelectrocatalysis) and investigation of synergy;
- Electrochemical activation fo persulfate and electrogeneration of hydrogen peroxide;
- Microbial fuel cells;
- Modeling of environmental electrochemistry.

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. Water 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 2000 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.
- Electrochemical oxidation
- Boron-doped diamond
- Agroindustrial effluents
The below list represents only planned manuscripts. Some of these manuscripts have not been received by the Editorial Office yet. Papers submitted to MDPI journals are subject to peer-review.
