Manuscript Topics
Thermal-driven water treatment technology utilizing waste heat or solar thermal energy
Scope: Water treatment or purification includes desalination for seawater and for inland impaired water. A huge amount of energy is consumed for water treatment, either using membrane-electricity-based technology or thermal-driven technology. Due to the large availability of waste heat from industry or development of recent technology for solar heat collection, thermal-driven water treatment becomes very promising. To better serve researchers in the community working on thermal-driven water treatment technologies and disseminate related knowledge, we would like to publish a special issue. Topics of the following, but not limited to, are welcome for submission:

• Advanced thermal-driven water treatment system design and analysis.
• Hybrid water treatment system integrating membrane-based and thermal-driven technologies.
• Advanced heat transfer technologies for application in desalination and water treatment.
• Advanced material technologies inhibiting fouling on heat transfer surfaces in water treatment devices.
• Zero-discharge or free of waste discharge technologies in water treatment.
• Technologies using thermal energy in wide range of temperatures for water treatment.
