Challenges in environmental science and engineering
Challenges in Environmental Science & Engineering”, CESE International Conference Series is an annual event initiated by Dr Jega V. Jegatheesan and Dr Li Shu both of whom are currently working at the Deakin University, Australia. Researchers, policy-makers, academics, students and the broader community active in contributing solutions to the myriad of environmental questions posed by the challenges facing environmental sustainability are the consistent participants of CESE series. CESE Series aim at making significant contribution to “Sustainable Growth” by bringing scientists and engineers together which in turn will pave way for further interactions with other major stakeholders. CESE-2008 was the first of the series that was held at James Cook University, Townsville, Australia with a core group of international researchers some of whom were research collaborators and had come to participate in a workshop for a project funded to Jegatheesan and Shu by the Sugar Research and Development Corporation. Emeritus Professor Roger Ben Aim who was one of the research collaborators of the above mentioned project was instrumental in the initiation of CESE series and was made Honorary Chairman of the series. CESE-2011 had four themes namely Sustainable Catchments, Wetland Ecosystems, Sustainable Energy & Green Chemistry and Membrane & Advanced Oxidation Processes. There were 170 delegates from 17 countries participated in this event. In this special issue, various advanced and conventional technologies in treating water, wastewater and groundwater using physical, chemical and biological treatments have been highlighted through some of their specific applications. This special issue has been dedicated to the following themes
