Guest Editorial
Guest editorial – environmental science and technology
Dr Shaobin Wang is a senior lecturer at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Curtin University of
Technology. He received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Queensland in 1998.
After several years of postdoctoral research, he joined Curtin University of Technology in 2004. His research
interests and expertise lie in environmental catalysis, nanomaterials synthesis and applications, greenhouse
gas reduction, solid waste recycle, wastewater treatment, and fuels and energy conversion. He has published
more than 100 refereed journal and conference papers. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal
of Chemical Engineering and a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Hazardous Materials.
Prof. Zhengping Hao is a research professor at the Research Center for Eco-Environmental Science (RCEES),
Chinese Academic Sciences (CAS). He is a distinguished young scholar of the National Natural Science
Foundation of China. He received his Ph.D. degree in 1996 from the Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics,
CAS. After 2 years of postdoctoral research, he joined the RCEES, During the period 2000–2001, he worked
as a visiting scientist in the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Queensland, Australia. His
research interests and expertise focus on catalysis, nanomaterials, advanced techniques for pollution control,
greenhouse gas reduction, environmental effects, and policy study. He has over 100 refereed journal papers
published and holds 10 patents. He is elected in the editorial board of six journals.
Environmental pollution including air, water, and soil
pollution is an important issue in the world for academy,
industry, and community. Environmental pollution has
caused significant damages to human health and ecoenvironmental systems in the past decades. Currently,
global warming due to the emissions of greenhouse
gases has been a worldwide concern. Understanding
the source and formation mechanism of various pollutants will provide a basis for their control. For removal
of pollutants, several technologies are effective such
as absorption, adsorption, filtration, catalytic oxidation,
and reduction. Source control and post-process control
will require more economic and efficient strategies to
clean the environment. Development in environmental
science and technology will make a significant contribution toward remediation of air, water, and soil contamination.
This special issue of the Asia-Pacific Journal of
Chemical Engineering presents a selected collection
of papers in the fields of Environmental Science and
Technology covering air, water, and soil pollution and

remediation as well as clean energy. In this issue,
Guo et al . investigate the emission of particulate PM10
from coal combustion. Wang et al . report hydrolysis
and oxidation reactions of carbonyl sulfide on particle
surface. Xu et al . describe a new method to degrade
nitrosamines in tobacco using zeolite and microwave
radiation. Harris and Zhong present a nonisothermal
thermogravimetric analysis of plywood wastes under
various gas conditions. The work of Zhang et al . studied catalytic deep desulfurization of gasoline using fluorinated zeolite for clean fuel. In water and soil pollution,
Li et al . investigate the application of biosorption for
removal of volatile organic compounds from wastewater and Nemade et al . demonstrate the remediation of
arsenic and iron using constructed soil filter. In addition,
nanomaterials synthesis and application has also been
explored. Koganemaru et al . investigate carbonization
of oriented polyacrylonitrile–mitiwall carbon nanotube
composite and Li et al . present synthesis of nanostructured LiNi1/3 Co1/3 Mn1/3 O2 as a cathode material for
lithium-ion battery.
We would like to thank Wiley and Prof. Moses O.
Tadé, the Editor-in-Chief of the journal, for a very
liberal editorial policy. We would be very pleased to
see this special issue attract a large number of readers
and encourage more authors to contribute their research
work to this journal.
