Most giant clastic reservoirs in Iraq will need to apply enhanced oil recovery in the near future, as these reservoirs go to maturity. The need to develop a rapid and cheap assessment of the enhanced oil recovery methods has become a hot topic in petroleum engineering. Different field-scale heterogeneous geological models were built based on the Na...

For the past decades, carbon dioxide injection has been used as a successful tertiary recovery method. The main advantage of CO2 can be referred as its miscibility with the crude oil which can lead to higher recovery. Generally, a large quantity of CO2 exploration can often be explored as gas or supercritical phase, but low-temperature CO2 is produ...

Dear Colleagues, The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) cannot be met unless waste management is addressed as a priority. Failing economic models treat resources as if they were infinite (SDG 12) and consumption patterns favor the disposable. How can we continue with a growing and increasingly urbanized global population without getting waste sorted? Just two generations ago, before the dawn of disposable plastic, people could throw their waste on the ground and it would rot. Not so today, with plastic now clogging up drains and being ingested by livestock. Chemicals seep from immense quantities of dumped waste, poisoning groundwater, streams and rivers. Life on land (SDG 15) can only be healthy when waste is properly managed. Waste is polluting the air we breathe as well. When people have no waste management services, they can only dump waste in the open or burn it. Open burning of waste is sadly commonplace. In days gone by, it was not such an issue. However, now, with plastics everywhere, the health impacts of open burning are catastrophic (SDG 3). Added to this is the climate change impact of methane and CO2 from poorly managed waste: within ten years dumpsites could be responsible for up to a tenth of manmade greenhouse gases (SDG 13). The current Special Issue will focus on the article collection related to the main theme, i.e., waste management and SDGs and articles related to various technologies or management of solid, liquid, gaseous and hazardous wastes can be submitted for consideration.
