Low-cost by-products from agricultural, household and industrial sectors have been recognized as a sustainable solution for wastewater treatment.
Most scholars would agree that the goal of business is to create value. Yet, can there be anything more valuable than peace?
Access to clean and stable energy is a major challenge for many developing African countries. This research aims to investigate ways in which financing renewable energy projects (REPs) can help to address this problem and therefore SDG7. The authors propose the promotion of the two-hand renewable energy service company (ESCO) model as an efficient financial vehicle for increasing sustainable economic development through the production of reliable and stable electricity in semi-urban and rural communities.

This book chapter addresses goals 3, 8, and 12 by suggesting that biosciences could form the basis of a strategy for focusing limited resources in ways that are likely to support economic development
Background One of the most important consequences of climate change could be its effects on agriculture.
The internal combustion engine (ICE) does not efficiently convert chemical energy into mechanical energy. A majority of this energy is dissipated as heat in the exhaust and coolant.
Sustainability transitions have been studied as complex multi-level processes, but we still know relatively little about how they can be effectively governed, especially in transnational domains.
Key strategies to low energy buildings
Occupant behavior is one of the major factors influencing building energy consumption and contributing to uncertainty in building energy use prediction and simulation.
