Special Issue Introduction

Adsorption is the most efficient, straightforward, economical, and green technique for removing pollutants from wastewater and air. This Special Issue delves into various types of adsorbents utilized for such applications, encompassing activated carbons, activated clays, zeolites, silica gels, and polymers. Preference is given to biobased materials and sustainable processes. All forms of contaminants will be covered, with topics ranging from the synthesis, processing, and customization of adsorbents to the innovative implementation of processes.

This Special Issue will provide a forum for the latest research activities in the field of Innovative Adsorbent Materials: Pollution Control and Resource Recovery. Both review articles and original research papers are requested in, though not limited to, the following areas:
1. Pollution control;
2. Emerging contaminants: pharmaceuticals, pesticides, flame retardants, industrial chemicals, persistent organic pollutants, endocrine disruptors, etc.;
3. VOCs;
4. Adsorption of contaminants (emerging pollutants, PFAS, heavy metals, nanoplastics, etc.);
5. Adsorption of organisms, marine toxins, etc.;
6. Sustainable materials;
7. Biobased materials;
8. Nanomaterials;
9. Sustainable processes;
10. Transformation and mineralization of chemicals (e.g., by photodegradation);
11. Passive sampling;
12. Resource recovery;
13. Produced water, drinking water;
14. Waste to energy.

Keywords

Activated carbons, activated clays, zeolites, silica gels, polymers, adsorption, heavy metals, emerging pollutants, nanoplastics, PFAS, organisms
