Call for papers: Environmental Electrochemistry for Industrial Wastewater Treatment

RSC Advances is delighted to announce ‘Environmental Electrochemistry for Industrial Wastewater Treatment’, a new themed collection. This collection is Guest Edited by Dr Maulin Shah (Enviro Technology Ltd., India), Professor Yujie Feng (Harbin Institute of Technology, China), Dr Kiran Bala (Indian Institute of Technology Indore, India) and Professor Dr Günay Yıldız Töre (Tekirdağ Namık Kemal University, Turkey).


In the present era, conventional wastewater treatment is facing the challenge of low pre and post treatment efficiency and hence it can be controlled with electrochemical based reactors. This themed collection aims to emphasise understanding the basics of electrochemistry and the way forward towards its application in environmental science and environmental bioremediation technology. It will include basics of environmental electrochemistry, redox reactions for contaminant removal and success stories of various electrochemistry-based techniques with microbial approach in the direction of practical wastewater degradation. With this collection we aim to stimulate new directions for environmental scientists and policymakers to work on advanced electrochemistry-based treatment systems and electrochemical sensor applications by overcoming the existing limitations. This collection will offer the way forward for electrochemically controlled bioreactors for refractory pollutant removal and monitoring purposes. Several successive technologies are key indicators for addressing the various aspects of environmental electrochemistry may be covered.

Topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Advancement in bio electrochemical system for wastewater treatment and resource recovery
  • Role of electrochemistry and electrochemical techniques for environmental bioremediation
  • Electrochemical redox reactions for contaminant removal and valuable resource recovery from wastewater
  • Advances in microbial electrochemical technology
  • Advances of pilot scale electrochemical system for industrial wastewater treatment
  • Decomposition and transformation of refractory pollutants in bio electrochemical systems
  • The reaction mechanisms at the electrode-electrolyte interface
  • Developing and applying electrochemical sensors in treating industrial wastewater

Please make sure that your submission provides an insight that advances the chemistry field or is of interest to the chemistry community.

How to submit

Both Papers and Review articles will be considered for this issue. All submissions will be subject to an initial assessment by Associate Editors and, if suitable for the journal, they will be subject to rigorous peer review to meet the usual high standards of RSC Advances.

Our APC is among the lowest in the industry and there are no submission charges. Discounts and waivers are offered to authors from developing countries.

If you would like to submit to this issue the manuscript should be prepared according to our article guidelines and submitted via our online system anytime before the submission deadline of 21st of September 2023. During submission, authors will be asked if they are submitting for a themed collection and should include the name of the themed collection. If you would like to submit but require additional time to prepare your article, please do let us know by contacting the journal.
