Ecotoxicity of mining pollutants on the environment and their remediation

Published 02 August, 2022


Heavy metal pollutants released by mining waste are becoming a universal problem and are of major concern due to their negative impact on the environment and human health. They are being spread in our soil, drinking water, food and air, due to the rapid growth of mining in different sectors, and improper waste management and disposal methods. Advanced biological and chemical methods used to remediate the harm caused by these contaminants is proving effective in their control and management. This special issue will focus on both current developments and future prospects of ecotoxicity of mining pollutants on the environment and their remediation. We welcome original research papers and review papers by researchers from all disciplines investigating relevant topics.

Topics covered:

These include, but are not limited to:

  • Impact of mining pollution on the environment
  • Ecotoxicity of metallic pollutants on the environment and human health
  • Fate and transport of mining pollutants in the environment
  • Advanced biological and chemical processes and technologies in mining waste remediation
  • Clean-up of heavy metal-contaminated sites using interdisciplinary approaches
  • Management of mining waste using the reduce, recycle and reuse approach

Important deadlines:

  • Submission deadline: 1 January 2023

Submission instructions:
