In the last two decades, China has experienced rapid economic development. More than half the world’s consumer products are being produced in China. As a result, the environmental quality is deteriorating rapidly. Therefore, control of water and air pollution and land contamination has become one of the most urgent issues in China.

In order to study various pollution problems as well as to develop suitable regulations and technologies, huge amounts of resources have been devoted to research and development in this field at various research agencies and tertiary institutions across China in the last 20 years. Significant advances in both environmental science and technologies in China have therefore been achieved.

The purpose of this special issue is to give the opportunity to focus on the latest information on the research and development activities in China. The content covers a broad spectrum of the environmental studies from water and wastewater treatment, surface water quality control, air pollution control to soil remediation.
