Water Science & Technology Special Issue on:

Environmental Technologies for the Sustainable Development of the Water and Energy Sectors


This Special Issue was created in collaboration with the 2nd Water and Energy Nexus conference. It brings together papers from multiple disciplines with a focus on state-of-the-art novel technologies in the field of environmental applications.

In the next few decades, global water and energy demand will increase significantly. As water scarcity rises, the global demand for pure water increases. In order to face these challenges, sustainable innovative technologies are needed to ensure global resilient water supply and reduced pollution in line with the concept of a Circular Economy.

Examples of these emerging and innovative environmental technologies include wastewater treatment processes, greenhouse gas emission and control, energy production and storage, and recovery of valuable resources from wastes.
