The study underscores the importance of understanding VOC emissions from flame retardant industrial parks to address potential carcinogenic risks and formulate effective reduction strategies, contributing to both Sustainable Development Goal 3 (Good Health and Well-being) and SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities).
The paper outlines how we may advances in observational technologies with developments in water quality modelling to integrate simulation of eutrophication impacts with organic matter dynamics and fate of synthetic toxic compounds.
This article aligns with Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities. The research focuses on transitioning the construction industry towards sustainable practices by utilizing local biological materials and developing a construction method for tension-compression anticlastic shellular structures. The use of a fully biodegradable material system and an earthen construction workflow helps minimize the environmental footprint in the built environment. This article aligns with Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being. The use of polymer-functionalized plant leaf scaffolds as a novel human cell culture platform for tissue engineering applications, specifically for promoting the alignment and elongation of muscle cells, contributes to advancements in healthcare and the development of functional skeletal muscle tissue.
This chapter aligns with Goals 6, 9 and 11 by detailing remote sensing for environmental considerations, water resource management, land use changes on urban heat islands, urban growth modeling and ecological monitoring
