Scope of the Special Issue

The environmental pollution mediated by a variety of organic, inorganic, persistent, and non-persistent pollutants has a substantial impact on agriculture. To resolve this global concern, nanotechnological advances could provide significant potential for decontamination of polluted sites for sustainable agriculture. The critical appraisal on the integration of nanotechnology with bioremediation can be used for a variety of reasons, including the fact that nanoparticles have a large surface area per unit mass, which accelerates the remediation process to minimize pollutant concentrations to risk-based thresholds while also decreasing secondary environmental impacts. The prestigious journal “Environmental Science and Pollution Research” (ESPR) serves the international community in all areas of environmental research, especially on microbial bioremediation, phytoremediation and ecosystem restoration aspects.

This special issue could be interesting for wide range of “ESPR” international scientific community and will improve the scientific gaps of nanotechnology-based remediation to make it less hazardous and reusable. In a nutshell, the special issues editors believe that the final outcomes distinctively will provide perspective on nanobioremediation, as well as detailed gaps and unforeseen issues.

This special issue will be combined with original research and critical reviews related to environmental protection, resource conservation, soil remediation, sustainable agriculture, climate change mitigation and carbon emission reduction through nanotechnological approaches.
