The Journal of Environmental Chemical Engineering provides a forum for the publication of original research on the development of sustainable technologies focusing on water and wastewater treatment and reuse; pollution prevention; resource recovery of waste; nanomaterials for environmental applications; sustainability and environmental safety; and recent developments on green chemistry.

JECE calls for full-length research papers, critical review papers, perspectives and letters to the Editor that cover the following fields:

Physico-chemical processes:
Adsorption/biosorption, ion exchange, membrane processes, magnetic separation, particle separation, phase separation, multiphase extraction, thermal/evaporative processes

Advanced oxidation processes:
Heterogeneous catalysis, UV/H2O2, Fenton oxidation, ozonation, sonolysis, plasma processes, electrochemical treatment, wet air oxidation

Nanomaterials for environmental and chemical applications:
Adsorbents, catalysts, nanocomposites, metal-organic frameworks, nanocarbon materials

Biological processes:
Anaerobic process, aerobic process, biofilm process, membrane bioreactorSustainable technologies:
Water reclamation and reuse, carbon capture, wast-to-energy/materials, resource recovery

JECE also covers the following fields:

  • Occurence, fate, transport and detection of micropollutants, nanoparticles and microplastics
  • Antimicrobial resistance
  • Greenhouse gas mitigation technologies
  • Novel disinfection methods
  • Zero or minimal liquid discharge technologies
  • Biofuel production
  • Advanced water analytics
