Call for Papers: Special Issue on "Environmental Biotechnology"

Invitation to contribute to a special issue on “Environmental Biotechnology”

You are invited to contribute a paper to the special issue“Environmental Biotechnology” in the journal Clean – Soil, Air, Water.

This special issue will cover research articles, short communications, and review papers and will be entirely devoted to the papers presented at the
2015 International Conference on Water Resource and Environment (WRE2015), Beijing, P.R. China, 25–28 July 2015.

Besides, a special session focusing on ''Environmental Biotechnology'' will be hold at this conference. The session will discuss the integration of science and engineering for the development, use and regulation of biological systems for remediation of contaminated environment (land, air, water), and for environment-friendly processes development (green manufacturing technologies and sustainable development).

List of main topics:
Bioaugmentation of biotreatment processes
Biological drinking water treatment processes
Biological nutrients removal and resource recovery
Biological treatment processes of pollutants
Biorefinery: biocompounds and biofuel
Biotechnology for municipal and countryside waste management
Bioremediation of contaminated environments
Environmental biotechnology for industrial wastes
Greenhouse gas emissions from wastewater treatment processes
Leading technology in environmental biotechnology
Renewable Energy from Wastes

''Please contact the conference secretary for paper submission.

Aims & Scope and NEW Instructions to Authors

Aims & Scope

CLEAN covers all aspects of Sustainability and Environmental Safety. The journal focuses on organ/human--environment interactions giving interdisciplinary insights on a broad range of topics including air pollution, waste management, the water cycle, and environmental conservation. The journal publishes an attractive mixture of peer-reviewed scientific reviews, research papers, and short communications.

Papers dealing with environmental sustainability issues from such fields as agriculture, biological sciences, energy, food sciences, geography, geology, meteorology, nutrition, soil and water sciences, etc., are welcome.

CLEAN focuses on scientists from academia and industry but also attracts readers from NGOs and administration, and is, therefore, of special interest for: agricultural scientists, biochemists, biologists, ecologists, ecotoxicologists, environmental chemists, environmental health researchers, environmental scientists, hygienic physicians, life scientists, toxicologists, and water/air/soil quality researchers.

Agriculture and forestry, Air, Biodiversity, Biological resources, Carbon capture and storage, Climate change, Ecosystems, Ecotoxicity, Emission sources, Energy management, Environmental health issues, Environmental monitoring, Environmental science, Hazardous substances, Human--Environment interactions, Human food chain, Hydrology, Life sciences, Natural resources management, Oceanography and Marine sciences, Organ--Environment interactions, Pollution prevention, Recycling, Renewables, Soil, Sustainability, Waste management, Water and Wastewater management.

CLEAN – Soil, Air, Water revised the Instructions to Authors. Please have a look for detailed information.

We highly recommend to read the Instructions to Authors carefully, before submitting a paper to the journal.

All scientific contributions are assessed initially by the Editor-in-Chief. Those manuscripts failing to reach the required priority rating, failing to comply with the Instructions to Authors or not fitting within the scope of the journal are not considered further and are returned to authors without detailed comments.
