Water Reuse Special Issue on

ChemBio Solutions for Water Remediation: Innovative Approaches to Emerging Contaminant Challenges



The Special Issue "ChemBio Solutions for Water Remediation: Innovative Approaches to Emerging Contaminant Challenges" aims to explore cutting-edge research and advancements in the integration of chemical and biological solutions for the remediation of emerging contaminants in water systems. Emerging contaminants pose significant environmental and public health concerns, and addressing these challenges requires interdisciplinary approaches that leverage both chemical and biological principles.

This Special Issue invites contributions that delve into various aspects of innovative strategies, technologies, methodologies, and case studies focused on the remediation of emerging contaminants in water. We invite original research articles, reviews, perspectives, and short communications from researchers, academicians, practitioners, and industry professionals working at the forefront of chemical and biological water remediation. Moreover, the participants who have presented their work in “International Conference on Sustainable Energy and Environment (ICSEE-24) held at MANIT Bhopal, India are also encouraged to submit their original research aligned with the theme of this Special Issue. Contributions should emphasize innovation, interdisciplinary collaboration, sustainability, and practical implications for mitigating the impacts of emerging contaminants on water quality and ecosystem health.

The Special Issue aims to foster knowledge exchange, promote interdisciplinary dialogue, and catalyze advancements in ChemBio solutions for water remediation, ultimately contributing to the sustainable management of water resources and protection of human and environmental health.

We are pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript to Water Reuse for peer review and possible publication in a Special Issue entitled ChemBio Solutions for Water Remediation: Innovative Approaches to Emerging Contaminant Challenges.


Relevant topics include:

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Novel chemical and biological remediation techniques for emerging contaminants such as pharmaceuticals, personal care products, microplastics, endocrine disruptors, pesticides, and industrial chemicals.
  • Integration of advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), including photocatalysis, ozonation, and Fenton processes, with biological treatment methods for enhanced water remediation.
  • Development of hybrid systems combining chemical catalysts or nanomaterials with biological agents for efficient degradation or sequestration of emerging contaminants.
  • Application of biofiltration, bioremediation, phytoremediation, and microbial processes for the removal or transformation of emerging contaminants in water matrices.
  • Design and optimization of integrated chembio reactors or treatment trains tailored to specific contaminants and water quality characteristics.
  • Assessment of the environmental fate, transport, and transformation of emerging contaminants in aquatic systems under the influence of chemical and biological remediation processes.
  • Monitoring techniques, analytical methods, and sensor technologies for the detection and quantification of emerging contaminants and their transformation products during remediation.
  • Evaluation of the ecological impacts, risk assessment, and regulatory considerations associated with chembio solutions for water remediation.
  • Perspectives on future directions, challenges, and opportunities in advancing chembio solutions for addressing emerging contaminant challenges in water resources.
