Special issue on chemical oxidation processes for water and wastewater treatment

Published 13 August, 2021

Chemical oxidation processes are an effective way to remove organic pollutants, inactivate microorganisms, and eliminate odorous and color pollutants in water. However, there are increasing concerns about the use of conventional and innovative chemical oxidation processes to increase the quality of drinking water, reclaimed water and treated wastewater. In recent years, studies have focused on how to promote the oxidation performance, increase the energy efficiency, deepen the understanding of the oxidation mechanism, and synergistically eliminate recalcitrant pollutant and its bio-risk, etc.

This special issue aims to contribute key scientific knowledge, technological development, and treatment train designs and operations to overcome the challenges mentioned above.

Topics covered:

These include, but are not limited to:

  • Development of novel chemical oxidation technologies involving ozone-, chlorine-, peroxide-, UV-, electro-, catalyst-, and Fenton- based chemical oxidation processes.
  • Evaluation of oxidation mechanisms involving (non-)radical species formation and utilisation.
  • Understanding of oxidation byproducts formation, toxicity evolution, and operation optimisation.
  • The synthesis and application of active catalysts for chemical oxidation treatments.
  • The combination of chemical oxidation with other physical adsorption / separation or biological treatments.

Important deadlines:

  • Submission opens: 25 August 2021
  • Submission deadline: 31 March 2024
  • Final decision: Average 4 weeks after submission
