Cement production consumes large amounts of energy. After rice is transported to mills, the husks are removed from the grain. Rice husk ash (RHA) produced in controlled combustion has been found to be a viable replacement for cement and has the potential to produce energy when combusted. This study can support SDGs 7, 9 and 12.
As climate impacts farming, so does farming impact climate change. Identifying best-practices that optimise food security while protecting the environment is a key to sustainable food security. This chapter contributes to SDGs 2, 3 and 12.
This journal article advances SDG 5 and 12 by explaining that with female names, voices and characters, artificially intelligent Virtual Personal Assistants such as Alexa, Cortana, and Siri appear to be decisively gendered female. This gendering of VPAs as female may pose a societal harm, insofar as they reproduce normative assumptions about the role of women as submissive and secondary to men.
This article addresses goals 7, 9 and 12 proposing an integrated blockchain-based energy management platform that optimizes energy flows in a microgrid whilst implementing a bilateral trading mechanism.

This journal article addresses goals 11, 12, 13 and 15 by looking at how land-based mitigation options potentially affect biodiversity.
This journal article contributes to SDG 12 by examining the potential of bionanocomposite films to reduce both environmental waste and the spoilage of food products.
This journal article advances SDGs 2, 12, and 13 by examining psychological differences between flexitarians and full vegetarians as well as predictors of flexitarians’ openness to going fully vegetarian.

Insects are increasingly seen as a potential solution to provide a sustainable source of protein. Contributing to SDGs 2, 12 and 13, this article evaluates the liking of four insect-based snacks among young Italian consumers through a tasting panel involving 62 participants.
This article contributes to SDGs 2, 12 and 13 by investigating the willingness of omnivores to introduce mixed (beef-vegetable protein) and 100% vegetable protein products into their diet.
