Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

In the pursuit of improving engine performance and mitigating emissions, researchers have explored the intriguing domain of fuel blends incorporating butanol and gasoline. This innovative study aims to unravel the intricate dynamics between butanol and gasoline when utilized as a blended fuel in internal combustion engines. The current study integrates cutting-edge techniques such as Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) and Response Surface Methodology (RSM) for the optimization of engine performance.
The study forecasts AI-based innovation's impact on SDGs in 22 countries from 2022 to 2030 using System Dynamics Modeling. In most of the 22 countries studied, AI-based innovation positively affects SDGs 1, 3, and 5. For half of the countries studied, AI-based innovation positively influences SDGs 2, 4, 6–8, 11, 13, and 16–17. AI-based innovation does not positively influence SDGs 10, 12, 14–15 for most countries studied.

The solvents used during the production of heparin cause air and water pollution. One of the steps to achieve sustainable kidney care is to find a green alternative to heparin.
This article provides novel insights for further improvements in tomato quality while also developing water-saving irrigation techniques.
Biological diversity is important for all aspects of life: from the food we eat to the wine we drink, supporting SDG 12
The results of this study, which looks at the emissions and performance of the ICE fueled by ethanol, are in line with SDGs 7 and 13. Regarding optimization and prediction, the distinctive combination of ANN and RSM encourages sustainable industrialization, more conscientious consumption, and more ethical production patterns. All these are crucial components of SDGs 9 and 12. To make refined decisions and achieve improved performance and emissions, this research can benefit engine producers and researchers. This alliance between scholars and industry stakeholders supports SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals), which also encourages knowledge-sharing to advance the SDGs as a whole.
