Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology seeks your high-impact research for our upcoming Themed Issue on Ultraviolet-based Advanced Oxidation Processes (UV AOPs)
Guest Edited by Dion Dionysiou (University of Cincinnati, USA), Graham Gagnon (Dalhousie University, Canada), Stuart Khan (University of New South Wales, Australia) and Mike Templeton (Imperial College London, UK), this issue will showcase original research, perspectives, and reviews, relating to the following aspects of UV AOPs:
- By-products, kinetics, and toxicity (e.g. mutagenicity, cytotoxicity) of UV AOP treatment of natural organic matter and micro-pollutants (e.g. pesticides, pharmaceuticals)
- Topics on UV AOPs that use light-emitting diodes (LED) and/or other alternative UV sources besides mercury lamps are particularly encouraged
- Comparisons of alternative UV AOP oxidants/processes (e.g. hydrogen peroxide, titanium dioxide, other emerging photocatalysts, chlorine, ozone, others)
- The impact of pre-treatment steps on UV AOP performance
- UV AOP fluence measurement; UV-LED-AOP measurement and performance monitoring during operation
- Novel UV AOP reactor design and application of functionality
- Life cycle assessments of UV AOPs
- The impact of changing water matrices on UV AOP performance (e.g. different natural organic matter types, alkalinity)
- UV AOP applications for wastewater treatment and water reuse
- Modeling, scale up, process integration, and pilot/full scale performance evaluation of UV AOPs
- Role of UV AOPs in water-energy-food nexus applications
- Submissions that simply report the effectiveness of UV AOPs at degrading a particular target compound or set of compounds in pure lab-grade waters will not be considered.
Submissions for this Themed Issue are due by March 2018 – if you would like to submit to this Themed Issue, please contact the Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology Editorial Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
