Contributing to SDGs 7, 9 and 12, this paper explores the possibility for safe discharge of cells using different salt solutions. Corrosion of the cell terminals was limited with bicarbonate and hydrogen phosphate salts. These salts shows a marked improvement in safety when compared to sodium chloride brine discharge, where the cells are compromised within minutes.

Energy consumption of the residential sector in Oman was examined and forecasted. A validated simulated model of a typical Omani house was compared to an energy-efficient one. This was done in three climatic zones in Oman using four GCC energy codes. Saving ranged between 13.2%–48.2%. UAE Estidama and Saudi Building Code achieved better saving depending on the climatic zone.Economic analysis show that these building codes are not always leading to economical solutions in some climates.
