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, case report, 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.

Indexing: COPE.

Rapid publication: manuscripts are undertaken in 11 days from acceptance to publication (median values for papers published in this journal in 2020, 1-2 days of FREE language polishing time is also included in this period).

About This Topic

According to the United Nation, water scarcity is one of the major problems facing many countries around the globe. Practicing sustainable water management strategies is the key for keeping the water supply safe.

Almost all daily human activities and manufacturing industry utilize water and generate wastewater. Wastewater discharges from industrial and municipal sources to the environment have been growing steadily in many countries due to the economic developments. Unfortunately, in many cases untreated wastewater discharge leads to environmental pollution and contaminates surface, ground and coastal waters and deteriorates water quality in rivers, lakes and canals.

This special issue of the Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research journal focuses on sustainable wastewater treatment techniques. We welcome high-quality manuscripts emphasizing recent developments and emerging technologies on industrial, municipal and agricultural wastewater remediation and management strategies. We encourage the authors to be scientifically rigorous and avoid speculations in their writing. Although, we would consider review articles, the priority will be given to the manuscripts based on original and new research.
