Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Atmospheric pollutants
  • Air pollution control engineering
  • Climate change
  • Ecological and human risk assessment
  • Environmental management and policy
  • Environmental impact and risk assessment
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Ecosystem services, biodiversity and natural capital
  • Environmental economics
  • Control and monitoring of pollutants
  • Remediation of polluted soils and water
  • Fate and transport of contaminants
  • Water and wastewater treatment engineering
  • Solid waste treatment

Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a range of papers (original research, review, communication, opinion, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

About This Topic

Dear Colleagues,

A basic framework for the global response to climate change has been established, based on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Paris Agreement. A global consensus has been reached to achieve a carbon peak and carbon neutral development, which can promote a comprehensive green transformation of both economies and society. According to the International Energy Agency, the manufacturing sector is one of the major contributors to global carbon emissions, accounting for about 17%. In recent years, digital technology especially has played a crucial role response to the dual challenges of green upgrading and digital transformation. Green innovation is a process of green technology, product, and process innovation, as well as corresponding organization, management, and system innovation. Digital technology is essential for green innovation, and when it is necessary to evaluate and model human knowledge in the process of digital green innovation, fuzzy set theory is usually the most suitable.

This Special Issue aims to collate original research articles that report on recent advancements fuzzy system models and their application in digital green innovation in green transformation and digital transformation. Review articles are also welcomed.
