Advanced Technologies in Textile Wastewater Treatment

About this Research Topic

Textile wastewater has been a growing problem in recent years. Wastewater containing dyes is usually characterized by high organic load and low biodegradability. In addition, color removal is a very difficult task for most wastewater treatment technologies. Thus, conventional treatment methods often fail to meet the strict limits and regulations set by environmental organizations in many parts of the world.

The aim of this Research Topic is to focus on recent research trends for the treatment of this recalcitrant wastewater, including both biological and physico-chemical treatments as well as combinations of different technologies.

This Research Topic welcomes submissions on wastewater treatment of textile effluents including but not limited to:

• Physico-chemical processes (adsorption, coagulation-flocculation, electro-coagulation, flotation, membrane technologies)
• Advanced oxidation processes (photocatalysis, ozonation, (Photo) Fenton, activated persulfate, cavitation, electrochemical oxidation)
• New trends in biological treatment (membrane bioreactors, fixed bed reactors, aerobic and anaerobic processes)
• Hybrid Treatment (combinations of biological and physico-chemical treatment)
• Pilot treatment plants and upscaling studies
• Simulation of wastewater treatment (kinetic modelling from laboratory or pilot plant studies)
• Assessment of the toxicity of treated textile wastewater
• Life cycle assessment of the textile wastewater treatment


Keywords: textile dyes, biological treatment, adsorption, membrane technologies, photocatalysis, electrochemical oxidation, textile wastewater


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
