Plastic Waste and Recycling, Environmental Impact, Societal Issues, Prevention, and Solutions, 2020, pages 223 - 249

This book chapter addresses goals 14, 15, and 12 by exploring the origins of microplastics (relating to our society, production and consumption) and the diverse and harmful impacts of microplastics in the marine environment on life underwater, as well as interactions with humans and other life on land at the end of the cycle.
This article addresses goals 7 and 12 with reviews across 28 countries on how culture creates barriers and defines ideas, customs, and social behavior regarding a transition to a low-carbon, low-energy future.

Case Studies in Chemical and Environmental Engineering, 24 February 2020, 100003

Cerium (IV) oxide, commonly known as ceria, is a rare-earth compound used in the optics industry to polish glass surfaces found in many high-tech products and components. Sending the spent polishing slurry, which contains high levels of total suspended solids, into the sewage system may damage natural ecosystems. This paper describes the work performed to evaluate technologies, design, and implement a system to recover more ceria and reduce TSS discharge from the ceria washwater operation. This supports SDG 9 and 12.

Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia, Volume 46, Issue 4, July 2019, Pages 409-420.

This paper looks at a number of ways that veterinary anaesthetists can reduce their environmental impact, including by minimizing release of halogenated anaesthetics (which are potent greenhouse gases). This relates to SDGs 12 and 13.
Impacts of rearing goats for milk production are analysed and more environmentally-friendly options are suggested to further SDGs 12 and 13.
The abundance of residual colors in the effluents discharged from textiles, tanneries, dyeing, food processing and numerous other industries across the globe, currently poses a grave threat to global environmental sustainability. Polymer enhanced ultrafiltration (PEUF) can be a cost effective and energy-efficient membrane separation process in the treatment of wastewater. This article supports SDGs 6, 12 and 14.
This article furthers SDGs 12 and 13 by looking at the supply chain for returnable containers (secondary packaging material such as bins, pallets, boxes or crates) as a means of reducing CO2 emissions. The authors propose a returnable containers supply chain that consists of a single vendor and multiple buyers. They study the impact of the investment of buyers on the performance of the supply chain, developing two inventory models for comparison. They show that the first case, where buyers invest, leads to optimal performance.

Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, Volume 116, December 2019, 109388

Nepal has been suffering from a serious energy crisis for decades. It has severely affected its economic, social and political development. This paper furthers SDGs 7, 9 and 12 by showing that renewable resources are crucial not only for mitigating the present energy crisis, but also to ultimately provide energy independence for Nepal by establishing reliable and secure sources of energy.
