Cover Figures

This year, we started to provide authors a platform to show figures or images at the front page of the journal. The cover changes every month. Should you have any images related to your article that you believe it might be appropriate for use on the cover of CLEAN – Soil, Air, Water, please email us your layout suggestions with a short description, the cover story.

All PDFs as well as the html versions of the published articles in an issue will show the cover page of this month. Articles will therefore gain high visibility. The Table of Contents section will also show the cover image along with the cover story, linking directly to the article.

Specifications: 18 cm × 19.5 cm H × B; 600 dpi minimum

Please submit your cover image after acceptance of your article.

For additional details, please contact Elisabeth Treutlein.

    Recovery of phosphorus from wastewater is of particular importance for sustainable agriculture. In this study, the performance of Ca(OH)2 pretreated bentonite for phosphorus adsorption from wastewater is investigated. Ca(OH)2 pretreatment of bentonite increases its adsorption capacity, reaching 14 and 5.5 mg P g−1 for synthetic and real wastewater, respectively. Adsorption of phosphorus with pretreated bentonite is a promising technology.

  4. Influence of Artificial Root Exudates on Triclosan Removal in Soil under Aerobic and Anaerobic Conditions

    In this study, the results demonstrate that artificial root exudates (ARES) addition greatly promotes the removal efficiency of triclosan under aerobic conditions and has a small effect under anaerobic conditions. The average metabolic activity of microorganisms increases more for the aerobic group with ARES addition with time, followed by the aerobic control group and anaerobic groups.
