Valorisation is the process of converting food waste materials into useful products including chemicals, materials, and fuels. This article contributes to SDGs 9, 11 and 12 by discussing the valorisation of food waste and the positive economic impacts to be gained.
This chapter advances SDG 6, 12, and 13 by explaining the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) and GRACE Follow On (GRACE-FO) missions that have greatly benefitted the modeling and monitoring of groundwater storage changes and drought at the global scale. In this chapter, we first review environmental controls on the temporal variability of groundwater using in situ data. We then describe an approach that infuses GRACE and GRACE-FO observations into a land surface model for assessing groundwater storage changes and drought globally.
This chapter advances SDG 6, 12, and 13 by examining the emergence of water sustainability aspects in recent virtual water trade (VWT) literature, highlights the recent advances and remaining issues in evaluating the water sustainability of agriculture globally, and makes recommendations for future scientific research and societal change: consider groundwater both at the local scale and at the global scale; improve our understanding of groundwater storage and dynamics with new models and data; and raise the profile of groundwater sustainability in governance frameworks to eventually end environmental damages of groundwater exploitation.
Optimal dietary intake is essential for children’s growth and long-term health. This paper provides an overview of existing dietary recommendations, and concludes that nutritious and sustainable food systems must be a global priority when identifying strategies to optimize children’s nutrition.

This paper describes the relationship between agriculture, food supply chains and children’s and adolescents’ diets and their food accessibility, advancing knowledge on SDG 2, zero hunger.
This article highlights the winning proposals of the fifth edition of the Elsevier Foundation Green & Sustainable Chemistry Challenge. The winning proposals were chosen for their innovative green chemistry aspects and their large positive impact on the environment, contributing to SDGs 7, 8, 10, 12, 13, 14 and 15.
This book chapter addresses goals 12, 14 and 15 by discussing the debate surrounding the role of biodegradable plastics in solving plastic solid waste accumulation and assisting the transition toward a circular economy, in turn encouraging more sustainable communities and responsible consumption.
