Energy Nexus, Volume 9, March 2023, 100181

This Article supports SDGs 7, 11, and 8 by presenting an alternative means of agricultural transport utilizing solar-powered farm rickshaws versus the traditional fossil fuel vehicles.
Reducing emissions and improving environmental conditions are now a global priority for promoting sustainable growth and preventing the adverse consequences of global warming and climate change.

Deployment of Carbon Capture and Storage: Insights, Case Studies, and Key Learnings, Volume , 1 January 2023

This chapter advances UN SDG goal 12 and 13 by presenting an overview of CCS technologies and how they support the reduction of carbon emissions.
The purpose of this interview study is to explore the perceptions of industrial stakeholders towards the use of biobased plastics in food packaging applications.
This research aimed to determine how interested people are in bio-based bottles. We also compared bio-based options to the fossil-based industry standard and determined consumer reactions to both. We measured consumer demand for bio-based plastic bottles as an alternative to a conventional (fossil-based) plastic bottle and investigated what conditions underlie this preference (e.g., bottle appearance).
The research seeks to estimate biogas production potential from livestock and slaughterhouse wastes in Ghana, in order to promote biogas technology as a possible alternative in the search for sustainable energy management methods and in support of the SDG goals.

Environmental Advances, Volume 10, December 2022

This article supports SDG's 2, 3 and 12 by considering production steps (cell extraction, cell line establishment, cell culture and scaffolding) and challenges (technology limitations, consumer acceptance & law and legislation) for the development of lLab-based meat, which is more sustainable and safer to consume than conventional meat.
Consumer behaviour towards nanopackaging, one of the most promising trends in food packaging, is systematically reviewed. Social norms, social concerns, and social media behavior are the social factors that drive consumer behaviour; while motivation, perception, learning, attitudes and beliefs, personality, and habits are the main psychological factors driving the consumer decision on buying or adopting the new trend in food packaging. Efforts supported by scientific evidence are needed to raise the awareness, knowledge and trust of consumers to improve consumers perception of sustainable packaging solutions.

Resilient and Sustainable Cities: Research, Policy and Practice, 2022, Pages 519-535

This chapter advances the UN SDG goals 11, 12, and 13 by offering two alternate approaches to Western planning—city making informed by biophilic systems and First Nations values—through Australian case studies that have similar systems of thought, aspirations, and values. The challenge is for use to adapt (or retrofit) our cities to redress climate change and our consumption values toward crafting robust, resilient, respectful and sustainable places.
The paper discusses the complexity of the interactions and effects of climate change on food security.
