This article highlights the winning proposals of the fourth 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 6, 13 and 15.
GIS and Geostatistical Techniques for Groundwater Science - Chapter 6 - Methods for Assessing the Groundwater Quality
GIS and Geostatistical Techniques for Groundwater Science, 2019, Pages 57-78
This chapter advances SDG 3 and 6 by explaining that groundwater quality is mainly affected by water-rock interactions, intensive agricultural activities, and the anthropogenic activity in the study area.
GIS and Geostatistical Techniques for Groundwater Science - Chapter 22 - Fluoride contamination in groundwater-A GIS and geostatistics reappraisal
GIS and Geostatistical Techniques for Groundwater Science, Volume , 1 January 2019
This chapter explores the use of geographical information systems (GIS) and statistical approaches to determine the extent of fluoride contamination in groundwater (SDG 6).
GIS and Geostatistical Techniques for Groundwater Science - Chapter 13 - Impact of urbanization on groundwater quality
K. Brindha, Michael Schneider; GIS and Geostatistical Techniques for Groundwater Science, 2019, Pages 179-196
This chapter contributes to SDG 6 by describing the various sources and selected contaminants that pollute urban groundwater.
Evaluating Water Quality to Prevent Future Disasters: Chapter 1 - Overview: Evaluating Water Quality to Prevent Future Disasters
Evaluating Water Quality to Prevent Future Disasters, 2019, Pages 1-12
This book chapter advances SDGs 6, 10 and 11 by discussing our vulnerability to water disasters to help us avoid some of them in the future.

The impact of on-site hospital wastewater treatment on the downstream communal wastewater system in terms of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance genes
This study quantified antibiotic and antibiotic resistance gene (ARG) concentrations in hospital and communal wastewaters as well as the influents and effluents of the receiving urban wastewater treat
Progress in Disaster Science, Volume 1, May 2019
This study identifies the key barriers to operationalizing FEW nexus at ground level and underlines the need for urban-rural shared perspectives in resource management.
Each year the RELX Environmental Challenge is awarded to projects that best demonstrate how they can provide sustainable access to safe water or sanitation. Projects must have clear practical applicability, address identified need and advance related issues such as health, education, or human rights. Applications close on 7 June 2019.
Spatio-temporal changes in terrestrial water storage in the Himalayan river basins and risks to water security in the region: A review
International Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction, Volume 35, April 2019
Groundwater storage (GWS) – a hidden resource underneath the land surface, plays a critical role in sustaining irrigated agriculture in these river basins, particularly during the dry season when rice crops are generally grown in irrigated lands across South Asia. Although monitoring of groundwater levels has been operational in the region for a number of decades, a basin-wide comprehensive assessment of GWS is lacking in most river basins.
Solar water disinfection catalyzed by metal-free photocatalyst has emerged as a promising approach for clean water production.
