Special issue on magnetic water treatment: advanced technologies and practices

Published 13 July, 2022


Magnetic technology has been widely used in a variety of fields, including mineral separation, removal of iron from raw materials, desulfurisation of coal, and scale prevention. In recent decades, use of this technology in the area of water treatment has broadened, and includes the synergistic effects of macro- and micro-magnetic fields with biological, chemical and physicochemical treatments.

This special issue aims to capture the various advanced technologies and practices of magnetic application in water and wastewater treatment, water reuse, and resource recovery. We welcome original research and review articles.

Topics covered:

These include, but are not limited to:

  • Magnetic coagulation and separation
  • Macro- and/or micro-magnetic field-enhanced water and wastewater treatment
  • Magnetic (nano) materials used as sorbents or catalysts
  • Properties and behaviour of magnetotactic bacteria during biological treatment processes
  • Recycling technologies and devices for magnetic materials

Important deadlines:

  • Submission deadline: 31 March 2023
  • Expected time to first decision: 4 weeks after submission

Submission instructions:

Please read the Guide for Authors before submitting. All submissions should be made via the online editorial system and will be subject to peer review. If the manuscript is accepted, the article will be published open access with no fee payable by the author.
