The atmosphere, the envelope of gases surrounding Earth, plays a vital role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The health of our atmosphere is directly addressed by SDG 13 (Climate Action), which seeks to combat climate change and its impacts, largely driven by greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. It also ties to SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being), as air quality directly influences human health, and SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), which encourages improvements in urban air quality. The atmosphere also plays a crucial role in SDGs 14 and 15 (Life Below Water and Life on Land), as changes in atmospheric conditions can influence weather patterns and harm biodiversity. Hence, maintaining atmospheric health is indispensable for sustainable development.

Bio-based aerogels with customizable porosities and functionalities constitute a significant potential for CO2 capture. Developing bio-based aerogels from different polysaccharides and proteins is a safe, economical, and environmentally sustainable approach. Polysaccharides are biodegradable, sustainable, renewable, and plentiful in nature. Because of these advantages, the use of bio-based aerogels with porosity and amine functionality has attracted considerable interest.
Multidisciplinary analytical techniques allow us to examine the presence and behaviour of pollutants in complex atmospheric, terrestrial, aquatic, and living compartments of ecosystems. This book chapter advances SDGs 6, 13 and 15.

Mercury contamination in soil, water and air is associated with potential toxicity to humans and ecosystems. Industrial activities such as coal combustion have led to increased mercury (Hg) concentrations in different environmental media. This review critically evaluates recent developments in technological approaches for the remediation of Hg contaminated soil, water and air, with a focus on emerging materials and innovative technologies.

The associations between traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) and numerous health effects have been established in epidemiology and emerging health effects are continuously being studied. This book synthesizes the state-of-the-art knowledge on TRAP and human health. The SDG goal 3.9.1 is to reduce the mortality rate attributed to household and ambient air pollution.

This book chapter advances SDGs 3, 13 and 15 by discussing various sources of air pollution and technologies to remove and treat pollutants.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture using CaO-based adsorbents has recently attracted intense attention from both academic and industrial sectors in the last decade due to the high theoretical capacity of CO2 capture, low cost, and potential use in large scale. However, the successful development of CaO-based adsorbents is limited by significant sintering of adsorbent particles over a number of cycles of CaO carbonation/calcination. In this work, a systematic understanding of fundamental aspects of the cyclic carbonation/calcination of CaO-based materials is reviewed.

Scottish farmers have been using clean energy technology normally used by buses and bin lorries to power their farm machines, helping to reduce emissions and make efficiencies. This helps to advance both goal 7 and goal 12.
China's Airpollution
Supporting Goal 11. Tightening environmental regulations in China to combat pollution will intensify supply-side pressures on its petrochemical industry which could drive up commodity prices

Pollution in China
Supporting Goal 11. Tightening environmental regulations in China will pause before being replaced by plans for tougher curbs on smog levels during the two years until 2020
Poor air quality has extremely detrimental health consequences, including cancer, stroke, asthma or heart disease. Existing research on air pollution-induced environmental injustice (EI) in Hong Kong (HK) is based on sparse air pollution data due to the limited number of pollution monitoring stations, rendering the study of the relationship between air pollution exposure and social deprivation (SD), and the subsequent study of EI at finer geographical scales difficult.
